Actors in spotlight for witty work
A RETIREMENT home for actors is the setting for Rossendale Players’ latest production.
Laying The Ghost, by Simon Williams, has been directed by Michael Whewell, and the players promise a ‘clever, fast-moving and witty’ work.
Among the ‘inmates’ are psychic Freda, played by Alison Topping and birthday girl Margo the ex of traditional actor Sir Leo, played by Christine Durkin and Tony McDonagh.
As Margo - who played a famous Juliet opposite Sir Leo’s Romeo, in their time - celebrates, the festivities are hijacked by Sir Leo, his wife Lady Judy (Sheila Newton) and protege Sadie (Siobhan Morris), set to be a modern day Juliet.
Players spokeswoman Hazel Morzek said: “There will be scenes of chaos and hilarity to follow - this is certainly one not to be missed.”
Also in the cast are Dorrie Partington as Mrs Kidd, Graham Haworth as Superman and Stephen Munro and Craig Taylor as the orderleys.
