Clare and the Clairvoyant

March 19th will be a notable date in the P-P calendar, as it brings us the first ever play by stalwart actress and former casting secretary Anthea Courtenay, and is another result of the P-P Collaborative Playwriting Group. It was sparked off by initial discussions about our beliefs and other peoples’, and was written with support from members of the group and valuable input from improvisation by P-P actors.

Here's the blurb:

"Clare, married to a workaholic surgeon, is approaching the big 40 and feeling dissatisfied with her life. Amy, a clairvoyant, promises her a happy future. But is Amy taking Clare for a ride?"

Sounds promising. 7.45 at the Phoenix.

I wish I had seen this. I read it a few months ago with great pleasure. It is a tale of redemption (of a crusty old man, obviously) with clairvoyance as the hook; and Anthea has brought a short story writer's craft to the construction (with the help of Collaborative friends) of a well-made short play. I hope it's not too late for the Camden Fringe: I'd back it to succeed.
