Sally Lewis is producing this One Act Play in the Theatre Green Room.  "Curses, Foiled Again" is a rehearsal of a send-up of a Victorian tragedy, showing all the things that can (and inevitably do) go wrong!

KATE (also Lucy, the maidservant)      Gemma Mainwaring
HENRY (also Jasper Rotten, the villain)   Mika Mitchell
SANDRA (also Nurse, the old family retainer)   Charlotte Foster
PETER (also Victor Pureheart, the hero)   Joel Hawkins
ANNA (also Lady Flawless, the elderly aunt)   Siobhan Gregson
STEPHANIE (playing Nell, the heroine)   Aimee Brasington

As a few of the actors are novices, we hope that as many of you as possible will join us in support of this short play.

A festive comedy about kids - for adults.

Mrs Horrocks’ class of seven year olds are about to put on this year’s school nativity play in front of their parents. Amid dropped lines, dropped tunes and telling’s off, backstage politics threatens de-rail the show; Gabriel plans to overthrow the Virgin Mary, King Herod would rather host A Question of Sport and the Innkeeper is determined to liven up the traditional script with a few antics of his own.
The Flint Street Nativity focuses on the hang-ups, worries and petty jealousies of these junior individuals and their brutal attempts to mimic and impress their elders.

Ah the little …”darlings”
