After much reading of scripts, and no little scratching of heads, we have decided upon Deborah’s Party by Geoff Bamber as our production for November 2013. We have performed plays by Geoff Bamber before, most recently How Does Your Garden Grow? in 2011 which proved popular with cast and audience alike, so we should all be in for a good evening’s entertainment round at Deborah’s this Autumn.
Deborah Jarvis has arranged a dinner party for her ‘unlucky in love’ work colleague Jenny. Her plan is to pair Jenny off with mild-mannered neighbour Simon. But Jenny already has a suitor in highly-strung TV producer Barnaby Ruttle. Barnaby’s unwanted appearance during the course of the evening will test Deborah’s nerves. Unknown to Deborah, husband Alan and even cleaning lady Mrs Seymour are also about to have their nerves tested by further arrivals.
