A HUSBAND and wife team have written and are directing Pendle Borderline’s latest new work.

Jan Playfer has written 42 Pigeon Alert, which is being directed by wife Lesley.

The play takes a ‘wry look at how modern political systems operate where the image is more important than the substance’, Jan explains.

He added: “A lot of the comedy in the play derives from how these absurd ideas are developed and become significant, at the cost of actually dealing with issues that are really important.”

n 42 Pigeon Alert, Pendle Borderline, The Muni, Colne, February 26 to March 1, 7.30pm. Tickets £5 in advance from 01282 661234. Also available on the door for £7.
