It Runs in the Family

by Ray Cooney
Directed by Rachel Butcher
Monday 15th - Saturday 20th July 2019

Show starts at 7:45 pm

 Dr David Montague is about to address a neurologists' convention, which may earn him a knighthood. Jane Tate, an old flame, arrives just as he's putting the finishing touches to his speech. She delivers a bombshell regarding a liaison they had many years earlier. David wants to conceal this from both his wife and the hospital authorities. Inevitably this leads to lies and fabrications. Add to this wandering senile patients, a police sergeant, various matrons, pantomime costumes and a syringe full of tranquilliser and we have the ingredients for a hilarious farce!

Doors open 7:15 pm, show starts 7.45pm.


Monday's Charity night is in aid of The Marian Hall which was built in 1954. The Marian Players put on their first production (The Happiest Days of your Life) in 1955 and continued with 2 or 3 productions each year until the early 70s when they disbanded. However, some of the group wished to continue performing and formed a new Am-Dram society, The Civic Players (who now of course perform at the Swan). As well as being the Parish Hall of the Holy Ghost Parish it has been used by many other members of the community  for sport, fetes, jumble sales, youth clubs, meetings etc. With refurbishment not a viable option the Committee decided to demolished it and build a new Hall. It is hoped that the new Hall will provide the same (but improved) kind of amenities. The Rebuilding Fund has been started and we have already had a few Fundraising events. Tickets (£12 each) are available online, or from Theresa Mahoney tel: 01935 429944 email: highlea46@msn.com   

Ashes to Ashes

The Swan at The Mail presents a short play by Harold Pinter
Directed by Ian White
Venue: Quicksilver Mail PH, 168 Hendford Hill, Yeovil, BA20 2RG
Wednesday 28th - Friday 30th August 
Performance starts at 7.45

The Swan Theatre, Yeovil are putting on a performance of this play in part to raise funds for their intended audience improvements at their Park Street Theatre, but also because it is an excellent play seldom done because of its short length.  It deals with the relationship between a young women, Rebecca, and her partner Devlin.  During their conversations she describes things which sound very much like occurrences during the Holocaust (Pinter refers to the play as his Holocaust play) but as ever with Pinter nothing is straightforward.  Did she experience the things she describes?  The date when the play is set is not stated but she is surely too young to have been involved isn't she?  But she has a Jewish name, so it's possible or is this inherited memory?  How does this relate to her relationship with Devlin?  Indeed what is the nature of that relationship?  Come and make up your mind then recharge your glasses and join the discussion session we will have afterwards and explain the whole thing to the cast and Director!  Top quality theatre in a pub.  What's not to love?

Doors open from 7.00, performance starts at 7.45
