Helen's Bay Players present an Evening of One Act Comedies.
For our Spring production, the Helen’s Bay Players will present an evening of one-act plays, with a much-loved comedy from David Tristram and two plays from local writer, Bill Jaeger.
Last Tango in Little Grimley by David Tristram
This is a very popular one-act play presenting the talents (or otherwise) of an amateur dramatic society’s attempts to revive its fortunes. Our version is set in Ballygrimley, a village along the North Down coast, somehow missed by the Ordnance Survey and even Google Maps. The society looks back to a golden age when its audiences reached double figures. Gordon, the Chairman, thinks he has discovered the one thing that will bring out the punters – sex! Margareta is not so sure. After all it is not Gordon who will have to bare all.
I’m not One to Gossip by Bill Jaeger
Two Belfast women get together for a coffee. They spot the man they used to work for taking photographs of a rather familiar young woman. Secrets of past and present come to light. With a title like this, don’t expect it to do what it says on the tin. In this short play, Lorraine Hunter and Claire Pollock resume their double act last seen in Deck Chairs.
Strangers in the Night by Bill Jaeger
Chris is not happy with the last room available in a Paris hotel. But when a girl emerges from the bathroom wrapped in just a towel, and with a booking for the same room, his night (and hers) gets a lot more complicated as they face the prospect of sharing the room – and the bed. Set in la ville d’amour, will it turn out right for our strangers in the night.
Ticket includes a cup of tea & biscuit.
