Laying the Ghost, 21st to 24th March 2018
By Simon Williams. A fast moving and witty play set in Yew Tree House, a retirement home for a group of eccentric, charming and 'growing old outrageously' theatricals. The doyen of the home is Margo Buchannan who is reluctantly being encouraged to celebrate her 70th birthday by her zany friend Freda Deacon and the retirement home proprietor, Mrs Kidd. The last thing she wanted, or expected, was a visit from her philandering ex-husband Sir Leo, as well as his formidable wife and his current mistress. Throw into the mix a tenacious tabloid journalist, an aged Superman kiss-o-gram and a mischievous ghost and you have the recipe for a delightfully humorous, warm and gentle comedy.
