Description

The group aims to visit a show each month. We meet twice a month: once to visit our chosen show and once for a group meeting (see venue below) to choose a show, discuss previous outings, pay for and distribute tickets and make transport arrangements. We meet at 2PM on the second Friday of each month at Leyland Methodist Church Hall, Turpin Green Lane, Leyland, PR25 3HA  (in the downstairs coffee bar.)

Tea and coffee are included in the £1 meeting fee. There is plenty of free parking on the church car park.

We also operate a buddy system. A member with internet access is buddied up with one without. They telephone to keep them up to date and print information for them if needed.

Rita, Sue & Bob Too – ANDREA DUNBAR

Octagon Theatre, Howell Croft, Bolton. BL1 1SB

rsb

** TICKETS AVAILABLE £16.00 **

Best friends Rita and Sue get a lift home from married Bob after babysitting his kids. When he takes the scenic route and offers them a bit of fun, the three start a fling each of them think they control.

Andrea Dunbar’s semi-autobiographical play, written for the Royal Court Theatre in 1982 when she was just 19, is a vivid portrait of girls caught between brutal childhood and an unpromising future, both hungry for adult adventure.

Told with startling insight and wicked humour, Rita Sue and Bob Too was adapted into a cult 80s film. The play’s original director Max Stafford-Clark directs this major new production.

NOTE :- Contains adult themes, smoking and strong language

Skipwick RNLI is all at sea. Crew members are hard to come by and Coxswain Darren’s management style isn’t helping. So when seventeen year old Shannon volunteers, it’s all hands on deck – particularly for Darren’s teenage son, Billy.

Can the station survive in this ‘me first’ age? Will eccentric fundraiser Hazel’s ideas ever turn a profit? And can Darren and Billy chart the choppy emotional waters closer to home?

With marvellous maritime music and fathoms of fun, join Mikron as we dive into two hundred years of saving lives at sea!

– Mikron Theatre Company

A Daft Comedy about Greed

In a small town in Yorkshire, a beautiful widow is being wooed by two suitors. Fresh from the City and with endless money to dispose of, the older one showers her with gifts – which the younger (handsome, impecunious, an inveterate gambler) wants to put to better use.

A love triangle, then; a tale of rivalry and avarice.

But money’s a slippery commodity and all is not quite as it seems. Throw in a bailiff, a drunkard, a vamp, a second-hand clothes dealer and two upwardly mobile servants, and the complications multiply.

Adapted from Alain-Rene Lesage’s savage eighteenth-century comedy Turcaret, Blake Morrison’s For Love or Money is a story of monstrous wealth and whopping lies.

– A Northern Broadsides production
