Mayhew on the Menu

Monday 9th March brings us the full length drama, "The Other Side of the Bridge", by Prize-winning author Roger Mayhew, and it's a stellar cast: Lynne O' Sullivan, Simon Desborough, Caroline Langston, Silas Hawkins, Tim Gambrell, Lindsay McGill, and Rexie Barnes.

What's not to like?

Roger won P-P Playwright of the year for 2006 with "A First Time for Everything". Last year his sequence of five short plays "Kitchen Nights" had a lunchtime run at the King's Head, and there's more to come.

"The Mourning After", which was read at P-P in 2007 and made last autumn's showcase, gets a rehearsed reading at the Old Red Lion on Monday May 11 with Terence Harvey & James Brough.

"A First Time for Everything" also gets a rehearsed reading there on Monday June 8, and will be directed by Dimitri Devdariani.

Okay, these are Mondays which means a clash in your diary, but we at P-P have full confidence that you'll be coming to the Horse and Groom that night, as you've already seen them. But it's nice to see Roger bringing his writing to a new audience.
