Modern Play Reading – November

In Ayckbourn’s ‘Improbable Fiction’ the stage is now set, after a typically awkward and inconclusive meeting of the Pendon Writers’ Circle. Flitting between Victorian melodrama inspired by the literary aspirations of farmer Jess, a 30s crime scene featuring journalist Vivvi’s poetry-loving DCI Jim Rash, and the futuristic world of alien-detection unmistakably the creation of local council employee Clem, we find the resolutely non-fictional Arnold Hassock a reluctant participant in three very different but somehow related scenarios, all of them simultaneously and improbably staged in his own house! Act Two will begin at 2pm on Tuesday, November 20th – new members are always welcome.
