Description

Upstairs Cuckoo by Peter Horsler

Claire has separated from her husband Steve and is now living with boyfriend Derek and daughter Libby in the marital home. As money is tight Claire asks Libby to advertise their spare room for a lodger. Unbeknown to Claire her ex-husband answers the advertisement, and as Derek has never met the ex-husband he offers him the room which he accepts. Then the fun and games begin.

This amateur production is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French Ltd a Concord Theatricals Company.

Sparrows by Charles Mander

Harold Makepiece, a redundant Civil Servant, while taking a quiet holiday at the seaside, gets into conversation with Joyce, whose main preoccupation is feeding sparrows and taking an exaggerated interest in their welfare. What starts out as a moderately reasonable exchange gradually turns into a nightmare as Harold also becomes involved with a freakish Edward and the seaweed eating Sandra. They try to rope Harold into a plot, until events are taken out of all their hands in a totally unexpected way.
