The office setting of Dirty Business needs a medium sized and modern style desk …
We would need to borrow it for the week from 20th – 28th October – but we can arrange transport in large and enclosed trailer.
Can you help?
Ideally it should have at least two drawers in it or an an accompanying pedestal unit.
The latest CDS Newsletter has just been sent to remind members and friends that we have a social evening this week, as well as a final role to fill in The Browning Version.
“Their big-heartedness is growing their membership and their accomplished performances fill the seats.”
The Browning Version
by Terence Rattigan
Performances October 24th – 27th Oct (half term week)
This one act play, often considered Rattigan’s masterpiece, tells a story of British reserve where characters develop and and the situation builds to an intense emotional peak that finally reveals the sensitivity behind the stiff upper lip with unexpected strength replacing weakness.
Ill health is forcing Andrew to retire from teaching. His wife despises him for his failures and finds consolation with Frank, a younger teacher. She openly taunts Andrew while Frank watches with disgust and shame. The wife knows she has lost Frank- but even more bitter is the realization he’s now Andrew’s fast friend.
