Knebworth Players October Production


Knebworth Players logo


Six aspiring authors meet on a winter’s evening to discuss their work. Among them are writers of historical romances and children’s literature who are finding it difficult to start writing, and a crime writer who can’t stop. A creator of extremely complicated science fiction, a librettist without a musical partner and the writers’ circle chairman, who produces instruction booklets, make up the rest of the team.

The chairman, Arnold, attempts to get the rest of the group out of a rut by suggesting that they collaborate on a piece of writing, an idea that is received without enthusiasm. However, as Arnold is clearing up after the meeting there is a clap of thunder, a blackout - and then the story that would have resulted from the collaboration takes place before his very eyes!

Sharp comedy and affectionate satire characterise this zany, imaginative play.

In the words of Graham Dormer, who is directing this production, “seven people playing 25 parts, four simultaneous stories with props and effects to match! There should be enough here to keep the audience agog until the final curtain."

Performances are on Thursday 16th – Saturday 18th October 2008 at Knebworth Village Hall, Park Lane. Curtain up at 8.00pm, doors open 7.30 pm. Licensed bar available from 7.30pm, during the interval and afterwards. Tickets £6.50, concessions £5.50 (excluding Saturday). Tickets are available from Village News, Station Road, Knebworth or call the box office on 01438 743788.
