Play Reading Group

Leader: Shirley Holbrook

When: 2nd Friday of the month 2.00p.m. for 2.15 p.m. start

Where: Group members' homes

Cost: £1 to cover hire of play sets and refreshments.

The aim is to give all members an equal opportunity to read and to experience a variety of roles: but we don't take ourselves too seriously!

Devon Library has an excellent play script department which provides us with our books. However choosing from the lists of available scripts can be tricky. There is a need to match the number of readers to the number of characters in the play. Sometimes we have a comedy and sometimes a drama. We try hard not to turn the latter into the former!

Unless we know the play, it is a matter of doing some ‘on­line’ research and the crossing of fingers.

Over recent months we have read old favourites from Noel Coward and Alan Ayckbourn, thought provoking plays from Shakespeare, Shaw and Ibsen and much lighter material from Neil Simon and David McGillivray etc.
