SLT to perform original monologue and two Alan Bennett pieces to the Playhouse

Sleaford Little Theatre Amateur Dramatic Society is putting on an evening of monologues and a one-act play consisting of two pieces written by Alan Bennett and a monologue written by long time member, Mary Rudkin.

The original monologue written and acted by Mary Rudkin and Directed by Terry Hayes is centred around a widow living alone in her bungalow. The widow, Betty, talks about her life during the first coronavirus lockdown with humour and reminisces about her family. Although Betty appears to be a very ordinary lady she hides a terrible secret.

The first piece by Alan Bennet, acted by Charlotte Shearsby and directed by Nancy Warnes is centred around Lesley. Lesley is hoping her latest acting gig will launch her career. Charming and naive, Lesley is dedicated to her craft, but will she make it to the big time?

The final piece, also by Alan Bennett, is a one-act play acted by Christine and David Malkin and directed by Garry Goodge. It follows Arthur, retired and living alone except for his budgie and memories of his late wife Winnie. While contemplating his life and achievements he is interrupted by a sharp ring at the door. Will his visitor, Miss Prothero ruin it all?

Tickets are on sale now online, over the phone or from our Box Office at Animal Magic on Westgate, Sleaford.
