Modern Play Reading – January 2019

We next meet at 2pm on Tuesday, January 15th.

The aspiring authors of Pendon Writers’ Circle, who had left their final meeting of the year reluctantly mulling over the chairman’s half-baked idea that a collaborative effort might help them at last to set pen to paper, did indeed see their combined talents coming to fruition in Act Two of Ayckbourn’s ‘Improbable Fiction’. A rollercoaster ride through Victorian melodrama, 1930s crime thriller and futuristic gobbledygook eventually reached its exuberant conclusion, much to the relief of Arnold, the bemused host who had unwittingly started it all off!  Our next play is ‘Quiet Weekend’, a 1940s comedy by Esther McCracken. Join us on January 15th to find out more!
