Abbots Langley Players’ July play is “Summer End” by Eric Chappell, a sort of murder mystery set in an old people’s home. The cast comprises four women and one man: two elderly ladies aged at least 70 +, one of when is feisty and forthright (a.k.a awkward and rude) while the other is much more “traditional old lady” but by no means slow. There is a sharply-spoken manageress of the care home, and a somewhat hostile care assistant, and the man, a little bad-tempered, is the son of one of the elderly ladies.
There will be a reading of this on Thursday 19th January at 8 pm in the Abbots Barn, with auditions the following week, Tuesday and Thursday 24th and 26th January. Anyone is welcome to come to the reading and to audition. If you’re interested but not sure where the Barn is, please contact the director, Jean James, firstname.lastname@example.org .
Performances will be on 5th to 8th July 2017.
