Doorway & Word of Mouth

Monday March 28 brings us a double bill of debuts. First up is a short ten minute play by previous P-P Actress of the Year Nicola Hollinshead, entitled Doorway. It's a two-hander, and will also feature a pair of newbie thespians, Eileen Pollock and Max Warrick. After a brief and hopefully lively discussion, we'll then turn to the evening's main entertainment, Sandy Nicholson's Word of Mouth.

What's it about? Well, according to Sandy's rather impressive website, it's "A one hour drama following the work and personal lives of a group of people who work to put on a nightly radio comedy hour, exploring their relationships with each other, and with their profession. We follow the presenters, writers, producers and the tech team, as they try to work under pressure, keep their personal lives together, and deal with what comes from being only fractionally famous".

I haven't read it myself, but it came with a very favourable mentor's report, from someone who is often hard to please. So that's a commendation!

7.45, at the Phoenix Arts Club.
