StatusActive. We have vacancies for men at present.

6 of us were at our Rona's house for our first meeting of 2018. We were pleased to welcome Mike back. We read the first two acts of "Because of the Lockwoods" by Constance Cox. We enjoyed this play which looks like turning out as a moral tale. We shall continue and finish this at our next meeting which will be at Di Brown's house, 18 Haddon Road, on Valentine's day, the 14th of February.

Our next reading will be "Murder in Play" by our old friend Simon Brett. It's a play within a play in which Boris Smolensky's budget repertory production of "Murder at Priorswell Manor" is looking decidedly shaky. The cast are more interested in their egos than the play and life imitates art when Boris's wife, Renee, is murdered on stage. Simon Brett's hilarious text, a worthy companion to his Charles Paris theatrical thriller novels, ruthlessly satirizes the politics of the inept company and the numerous red herrings keep the audience guessing until the final moments of the play.
