Laying the Ghost
A comedy by Simon Williams (Upstairs, Downstairs)
Directed by Lynda Kent
Mon 27 June - Sat 02 July (incl. Sat matinee)
This fast moving comedy is set in Yew Tree House, a retirement home for a group of eccentric, charming and “growing old outrageously” theatricals.
Margot Buchanan is a witty ex-actress. Trying to forget her 70th birthday, Margot is less than pleased when she receives three unwelcome birthday visitors: her ex-husband Sir Leo Buchanan a well-known actor and philanderer trying to evade the tabloids, Leo’s second wife Lady Judy Buchanan, and Leo’s current mistress aspiring actress Sadie Croft. Then, to add insult to injury, Leo has the temerity to suffer a heart attack and die.
But even from beyond the grave, Leo is anxious to mediate his tangled relationships with the three women and, luckily for him, Margot’s friend, Freda, can see ghosts – if only she can pull herself away from her jigsaw puzzle of The Full Monty.
