Stane Street Players are pleased to announce their next production

Trivial Pursuits – a Comedy by Frank Vickery

‘A summer evening’s  barbecue is the setting for a meeting of the Trealaw and District Operatic Society. Next season’s play is being announced but Nick, the society’s business manager, has promised a different show and the plum roles, to four different people. As the evening progresses each character’s foibles and talents are revealed. Joyce, once talented and well-meaning, is a lush; Teddy is alternately sweet and strident; Derek is pathetic but lovable. The complex relationships between players emerge as moments of pure slapstick and farce alternate with ones full of real drama and pathos. Not every hitch is resolved, but at the end of this exploration, by turns ironic and serious, of the joys and heartaches of amateur theatrics, we leave the society intact and its members ready for another season testing the magic and artifice that is theatre.’

The play is being performed at Earls Colne Village Hall on Friday 10th and Saturday 11th May
