Gainford Drama Club to perform An Ideal Husband
TICKETS are on sale for a village drama club’s autumn production.
Gainford Drama Club is performing an adaptation of Oscar Wilde's comedy An Ideal Husband, abridged by the group’s producer and director Joan Hillery Robinson.
The storyline features scandal in the life of a politician, and the threat of press exposure is a recurring theme.
A club spokeswoman said: “The enduring popularity of the play is undoubtedly down to its wit and humour but also to the narrative focuses on political corruption.
“The play was extremely popular with Victorian and Edwardian audiences.”
Performances will run over ten nights at the Academy Theatre, on High Green, in Gainford, from Tuesday, November 19 to Saturday, November 23 and Tuesday, November 26 to Saturday, November 30.
The theatre seats 90 people.
Tickets cost £7. There are still some available for the opening night when there will be an opportunity to meet the cast.
A ticket application form can be downloaded from gainforddramaclub.co.uk or call 01325-730485 between 6.30pm and 8pm, Monday to Friday.
