TWELVE lives will unfold in six stories to be performed by Backwell Playhouse Theatre Company.

Deckchairs, Jean McConnell's series of funny and poignant playlets for women, are all set on and around two deckchairs.

Both comedies and dramas, the playlets all delicately observe life and are full of colourful, animated characters ranging from obsessive pet-owners to devoted grandmothers, compulsive shoppers to former Headteachers

Each play, of about 20 minutes each, involves two women depicting the relationship between strangers, friends or family.

The show will be put on at the village venue in Mariners Drive at 7.30pm from January 27-30.

Tickets, priced£7-8, are available from the box office on 01275 462621 or 07534 840790.
