THE Exmouth Players' summer season is nearing the half way stage and tonight (Thursday) and tomorrow (Friday) the last two performances of Marc Camoletti's uproariously funny farce Don't Dress for Dinner, directed by Peter Nichols-Rawle, will take place at the Blackmore Theatre at 8pm.
The hardworking and enterprising stage crew will then begin the race against time to change the set completely for the second play, Anyone for Breakfast, directed by Wendy bishop. The author of the play is Derek Benfield whose TV appearances include Bill riley in the BBC series The Brothers and, more recently, Patricia Routledge's husband in the popular crime drama Hetty Wainthropp Investigates. Derek Benfield is also the author of a host of comedies and Anyone for Breakfast is calculated to keep the laughs coming at the Blackmore on the following dates: July 31, August 1, 7, 8, 14 15, 28 and 29 and September 4, 5 and 6.
Karen Bazeley is cast as Jane, who is meeting her toyboy Mark (Sam Pike) at Shirley's house. Shirley (Helen Ballard) is intending to meet Jane's husband Roger (Mark Blaber) at his house but they end up at Shirley's and, to make matters worse, Shirley's husband, Gilbert, arrives unexpectedly with a pretty German air hostess, Helga (Ruth Tompkins). A chaotic evening with frantic activity and a tangled web woven by deception follows.
