Let's get this show on the road

I am thrilled to reveal some exciting news: Lynden Players will be taking one of my shows on the road, performing in different venues around the area, in response to a request for drama from a neighbouring village. We will be bringing bucket loads of drama with PLOT and The Plot Thickens, an outrageous two part comedy written and directed by yours truly.

Regular readers may remember that PLOT was the Lynden Players' festival one act play in 2019, described as “The rudest play I ever saw in Lighthorne” by Rod Chaytor, Lighthorne Festival Chair. I am very proud of that show and everyone involved and couldn't help wondering what happened next for the characters. So, I penned a second act to continue the action, and the two parts will be performed as a full length show. The original mighty cast has returned, plus we will be introducing two new characters in Act Two.

PLOT is a ‘backstage’ play where the story follows a troupe of actors who are rehearsing a new production loosely based on the Gunpowder Plot. Discovering that the script is terrible, and fearing for their reputations, the cast plot to sabotage the show. The play contains strong language and adult humour.

Fans of filth will be pleased to know PLOT 2 The Plot Thickens is equally, if not more, rude. The actors return a year later to perform a Christmas play, a modern retelling of the nativity complete with a flying angel and a heavenly choir, intended to restore the family reputation.

Secrecy, deceit, rivalry, jealousy and rage: not just for Christmas!

Show dates will be the weekends of 26/27 March and 1/2 April. Venues to be confirmed.
