Bleadon Players' new double-crossing comedy
PUBLISHED: 10:16 07 October 2011
DOUBLE-crossing, mistaken identity and a tax fiddle - Bleadon Players' latest show has it all.
The group is staging a comedy play using local residents about a ‘gardening celebrity’ in Bleadon’s Coronation Hall.
The group, who have been rehearsing since August, includes Bleadon vicar Nigel Venning and Which? Magazine journalist Sandie Gibbon.
As the play’s programme describes the plot: “When Tom Lambert, botanist and TV gardening celebrity, receives a phone call one morning from the Inland Revenue about his PR consultant, a Miss Joanna Flint, he can honestly say he has never heard of her.
“By lunchtime, he knows all about Miss Flint and rather wishes he didn’t.”
Director Pam Hillier said: “Everybody has been really enjoying it and it is going well.
“We wanted to do a play with a small cast and comedy is always well received.”
Weston residents Peter Gibbon, Ken Lamb, Teresa Page and Morag Edwards will also be in the cast.
The play opened last night (Thursday) and is on tonight and tomorrow night at Coronation Hall from 7.30pm.
