Do you enjoy going to the theatre, but don’t care to go on your own? A group of us from the U3A goes to all The Loft’s productions, so you can meet friendly faces at the bar beforehand and have a chat and a drink in the interval. You don’t have to ‘join’ the group — you can just come along — but if you do join, you will get emails about forthcoming productions. We go on Tuesday evenings; the next dates are shown below.
Booking: To book as part of the U3A group, email Sue Hamilton at The Loft, at email@example.com, giving the reference and your phone number. When you are sent a confirmation email, for security you will also be given your own individual Patron number, which will then be quoted by whoever rings you up asking for payment. If you don't use email, call Sue Sheen or Ros Heron, who will contact Sue Hamilton for you.
For more information, and to be added to the email reminder list, contact Sue Sheen (details at back of Info) or Ros Heron on 730712.
|Dates for your Diary|
|Tue Jun 18th||The York Realist, by Peter Gill|
18th June, 7.30 pm, £12.00. Booking deadline 11th June, ref WDU3A York party
A cottage, 1960s Yorkshire.
The York Mystery plays are in rehearsal. Farmhand George becomes one of the cast, straining against his roots as a new world opens up to him. Can he grasp the chance for a different life?
Peter Gill’s dazzling play is both funny and a deeply touching reflection on the rival forces of family, class and longing. A five-star-rated sell-out in its London production in 2018.
|Tue Jul 23rd||The Thrill of Love, by Amanda Whittington|
23rd July, 7.30 pm, £12.00. Booking deadline 16th July, ref WDU3A Thrill party
A hostess in the West End ‘gentlemen’s clubs’, Ruth Ellis works hard, plays hard and dreams of a movie-star life. Yet in 1955, the self-styled ‘blonde bombshell’ is convicted of shooting her lover and becomes the last woman to be hanged in Great Britain. But why was she so keen to admit her guilt, and so loth to offer any defence?
