The amateur theatre group based in Frisby on the Wreake are putting on their Autumn play production of ‘Old Actors never die – they simply lose the plot’ this weekend.
This is a hilarious farce by Lyn Britney, set in The Mount home for retired actors and involves a philanderer on the run from the Russian Mafia who tries to find refuge in the sanctuary where his three ex-wives are residing.
His arrival precipitates a visit from some menacing Russian villains and a kidnapping. The trio of ex-wives decide to use all their theatrical finesse to save him.
Well drawn characters and sharp comic writing guarantee an enjoyable night out.
Curtain up is 7.30pm in Frisby Village Hall, tonight, Friday and Saturday.
Tickets are available from Frisby Post Office or call (01664) 434994. Alternatively text 07990514138.
