Memorable and extraordinary characters and situations, all reflecting the strangeness of the human condition and the minefield of the English language. Cosmic private eye Dick Spacey, obsessive plumber Ron, mystic Madame Psoriasis and psychotic Victorian heroine Jane Hair are just some of the array of strange personalities at loose.
It is the 30th anniversary of Helen and Douglas House. Please join us and support a very special charity with a very special storytelling event. Lots of fun and laughter as the children make 30th birthday cards and listen to a selection of fun stories and rhymes led by local actress Lucy Walters. The birthday cards will be presented to the charity. A suggested £2 donation.
70% of us want to die at home - only 25% do. Why? A rehearsed reading of award winning playwright, Nell Dunn’s unflinching play. Based on her own experiences with her partner and those of her friends including Diana and George Melly she gives voice to the story of several families who have experienced a home death telling a funny, moving and uplifting story. Followed by expert panel in a series of verbatim and remembered moments.
