Three short comedies

Katy Armstrong, Nat Cook and Mike Murphy in ‘Mother Figure’

Join South Brent Amateur Dramatic Society for an evening of comedy featuring three short plays:

  • Mother Figure, by Alan Ayckbourn;
  • Plan B by Robert Scott;
  • Gosforth’s Fete by Alan Ayckbourn.

In Mother Figure we find a harassed mum who cannot escape from baby talk, and her bickering neighbours who confusingly find themselves cut down to size.

Plan B takes an anniversary trip to Accident & Emergency, where a disgruntled couple get unexpected help from the eccentric, saucepan-clad Belinda.

Gordon Gosforth’s a man who needs plan B, C and D in Gosforth’s Fete, when his careful arrangements for the annual village event descend into confusion and chaos thanks to a thunderstorm, a malfunctioning tea urn and a mix up with a microphone.

Leticia Hooper, Sarah Elghady and Rob Kidney in ‘Plan B’

All three plays offer comic views of chaotic lives that are guaranteed to bring laughter to South Brent.

Mother Figure is directed by Veronica Brown; Plan B and Gosforth’s Fete are directed by Robin Willoughby.

By the way, this production was originally scheduled as ‘Confusions’, but we’ve changed the name to reflect the mix of plays.
