FADS Spring Production 12-15 April
A Day in the Death of Joe Egg to be performed by FADS this Spring.
The coming of the new year has seen rehearsals get under way for the next FADS production, A Day in the Death of Joe Egg by Peter Nichols.
The production will bring Claire Harries and Peter Hilton together in the leading roles of Sheila and Bri, parents of Josephine, their 10-year-old daughter, who suffers from cerebral palsy. They will be supported by Kathy Churchill and Peter Turner playing family acquaintances Pam and Freddie, and Nicky Seabrook, who plays Bri’s mother, Grace. The part of Josephine will be played by Molly Churchill.
This play is quite exceptional; not only in its content but also in its unusual theatrical style and in the way it manages to celebrate human resilience and compassion through moments of high comedy and acute sadness as it explores the strains that are placed on Sheila and Bri’s marriage as a result of bringing up Josephine.
Audiences are never quite sure what to expect next as this award-winning drama unfolds, and perhaps the only thing for certain that can be said about the play is that once seen it is never likely to be forgotten.
The production will be presented in Framlingham College Theatre from Wednesday 12th – Saturday 15th April, commencing each night at 7.30pm.
Tickets will be available from Monday 13th March.
