Three plays for your pleasure

PUBLISHED: 09:00 30 August 2012

THREE plays very different from each other will take to the stage as part of Weston’s Fringe Festival from today (Thurs).

Fireworks is a story about peace protestors in Parliament Square on New Year’s Eve and Human Resources follows an unexpected meeting in the grounds of an old manor house.

Waiting For God Knows What is a play about a small Yorkshire village where nothing much happens - until now.

The three plays written by local playwrights are being performed for the Fringe Festival, which is taking place across town.

Fireworks by Dean Harris explores the human conflict of war through the eyes of ex-soldier John, a protestor in Parliament Square.

It is New Year’s Eve and hopes are high, fortunes being squandered in the blink of an eye.

The countdown has begun to the Westminster Chime, when John’s life is changed forever when he meets a man from his distant past.

Human Resources by Carole Penhorwood tells the story of Mr and Mrs White, who live in a caravan on the estate of a manor house under restoration.

They receive a visit and engage in social small talk, but is the visit all it seems?

Waiting for God Knows What by Alan Holloway is a light comedy set in a park in Yorkshire where the characters are growing old disgracefully. Watch out though, as revenge is in the air.

Performances of Fireworks and Human Resources will be staged at the Winter Gardens today (Thursday) at 7.30pm and performances of Waiting for God Knows What and Human Resources are at the same venue on Monday at 7.30pm.

Tickets, priced £5, are available from 01934 645544 or on the door.
