“Rumours”- A farce by Neil Simon

Back in their 93rd year, Weeton and Huby Players present “Rumours”.

Ken and Chris Gorman arrive at the house of their friends, Charley & Vivian, to help celebrate their wedding anniversary but Vivian is nowhere to be found and Charley…well you’ll have to wait and see! As three other couples turn up, rumours develop that cause confusion, misunderstanding, rancour and arguments.

Right from the start, this British version of one of Neil Simon’s best known plays moves on at a cracking pace until a barely credible explanation is offered up to a sceptical policeman.   To find the consequences order you tickets now….

“London Suite” by Neil Simon, Thurs 20th- Sat 22nd November, 7:45pm, Almscliffe Village Hall

The autumn play this year is “London Suite” by Neil Simon. Or rather it is a collection of four short plays set in the same suite of a fashionable old hotel in London. In each playlet Simon sets a different tone, starting with a thriller, moving to a comedy, then to a comedy-drama, and finally a hilarious farce.

London Suite contains Simon’s characteristic witty dialogue, sight gags and unexpected moments of poignancy. What makes the play even more interesting is seeing a small group of actors portray all the various characters in the four different playlets.

The first story, Settling Accounts, has a writer holding a gun on his horrified agent who has stolen all of his money. In Going Home, a widow is shopping her way through London, while her daughter tries to couple her mother with a Scotsman who is allergic to marriage. In the poignant Diana & Sidney, Diana is in London and meets up with her ex-husband, who needs money for a friend dying of cancer. The fourth and final playlet, The Man on the Floor, is a farce that features Mark and Annie, two frantic tourists who have lost their Wimbledon tickets. When things could not get worse they do, of course. Mark’s back goes out and a doctor is called in. Well, I won’t tell you what happens next… except to say that Kevin Costner is scheduled to make his debut with the Players.

Taking Steps, 14-16th March 2013

The award-winning Weeton & Huby Players present Alan Ayckbourn’s Taking Steps.

Elizabeth is taking steps to leave her husband. Her husband is taking steps to buy a house for them to live in. Mark is taking steps to marry his fiancée, a woman recently arrested for soliciting. Simultaneously set over three floors of a crumbling mansion house, which is reputedly a former bordello and said to be haunted, Taking Steps follows this mismatch of people over the course of one night and a following morning, as confusion and hilarity ensues. This classic Ayckbourn comedy, which will be performed in the round by Weeton and Huby Players, demonstrates that ordinary situations can become extraordinary through simple misunderstanding and bad timing.

Taking Steps opens on Thursday 14th March for 3 nights at Almscliffe Village Hall in Weeton. Curtain up at 7.45pm promptly.
All tickets only £6. Call 01423 734 871 or email jennymacathom@yahoo.co.uk stating your party’s name, the performance date required, the number of tickets required and a daytime and evening contact number so that we can contact you to arrange payment, delivery of tickets, and/or arrangements to collect tickets from the Box Office on the night of the performance.
