Yet again, this small group delighted audiences with a hilarious production. Whilst not a frenetic farce, Love and Money by Raymond Hopkins had enough funny “business” and a witty script to boot. The scene with the vicar, the lady from SOCO and the tube of superglue was a great moment of farce, brilliantly executed by Tim and Carrie-Anne Hiscock and some members of the audience were obviously moved to tears! Under Ruth Jones’ able direction, every member of the cast had a part to play in the unfolding of the plot as Derek Felton (Graham Pinney, determined to extract every bit of laughter from the part) tried to profit on the insurance after a burglary. Debbie Sparks as his long-suffering wife made the most of some very funny lines and…
Last night Raymond Hopkins author of Love and Money attended our production. This is what he had to say: "Just a short note to say a very big Thank You for the warm hospitality shown to my father-in-law and myself last night. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and It was lovely to meet you all. Your production of 'Love and Money' was brilliant. It's the first time I've ever heard my father-in-law laugh at one of my plays!!! Very many congratulations to all the cast and crew and to Ruth for some inspired directing. All the very best for your future productions." A full review of our production will be on here shortly.
It's the final night of 'Love and Money' by Raymond Hopkins this evening! We had a hugely successful evening last night, so why not come along tonight and have a good laugh?! Tickets are available to purchase online through our Online Box Office until 5pm today. Tickets can also be purchased at the door!
For our next production, Ruth Jones will be directing “Love and Money” by Raymond Hopkins. What happens when the family have a robbery and try to claim the insurance payment? Not a subject for a farcical comedy? Don't you believe it! The twist and turns, the intrigues, the misunderstandings and the falling-outs are hilarious. Don’t take our word for it, just come along and watch 24, 25 and 26 March.
Thursday 28, Friday 29 and Saturday 30 October 2010 West Monkton Village Hall Doors Open 7:30pm - Curtain Up 8pm This hilarious spoof of the best of Agatha Christie traditions is set in a country manor house in the 1930's, with an assembled cast of characters guaranteed to delight. The play introduces the inept and bungling Inspector Pratt, who battles against the odds to solve the murder of the house's owner. It soon becomes clear that the murderer isn't finished yet, but will the miscreant be unmasked before everyone else has met their doom, or will the audience die laughing first?
