Meets in members' homes at 2.00pm on the day after the U3A monthly meeting.
StatusActive. No vacancies.

Four men and five ladies were at the May meeting which was hosted by Elsie Barber.
This is the best balanced team we have ever had.

We read the first act of "Joking Apart" by Alan Ayckbourn.

The play centres around Richard and Anthea. Charming, naturally successful in everything, they unconsciously but ruthlessly dominate the lives of all with whom they are associated. The new vicar, Hugh, falls for Anthea. Hugh’s wife, Louise, is driven to drugs by Richard and Anthea’s relentless kindness. Brian has been in love with Anthea for years and has a series of girlfriends to try and replace her.

When first published this was described by one critic as "His best yet". Set over a period of 12 years this is one of Ayckbourn’s
darker comedies. It focuses on the destructive, corrosive impact of jealousy and envy.

Please note that our next meeting is on 13th June at Alan Kirkham's house.

Alan Kirkham May 19th 2018
