Hayling Island Amateur Dramatic Society present:

Wife After Death

A comedy written by Eric Chappell.

Comedian and national treasure Dave Thursby has died, and on the day of his funeral, friends and colleagues gather beside his coffin to pay their last respects ...

There's Harvey, who wrote Dave's material; Vi, Harvey's wife; Kevin, Dave's agent, and Kevin's wife Jane Dave's glamorous widow Laura has arranged a funeral to remember, complete with a horse-drawn hearse and an attendant dog.

An unfamiliar woman in flamboyant mourning clothes turns out to be Kay, Dave's ex-wife from before he was famous, and a series of revelations end with Kevin throwing a drink into the coffin and all the guests asking themselves if they ever knew the "real" Dave.

Act II opens three weeks later for the disposal of Dave's ashes. The atmosphere is tense and Kevin is wearing a controversial tie, but as more truths are revealed, even from beyond the crematorium Dave seems to be having the last laugh

"... a terrific evening of love and laughter" ~ The British Theatre Guide

Leaves on a Line

Two individual stories. Two lives connected by one moment.

A baby is abandoned on a deserted railway platform, there is a young woman who decides to give up her baby and an older woman who finds it. A decision that derails and changes the direction of both their lives.

2015. A re-opened heritage railway station. When Liz receives an unexpected message, she is presented with the chance to live a life she rejected decades ago. This could be her moment; this could be just what she’s been waiting for. But should she first reveal the secret she has kept for twenty-one years?

1994. A railway station facing closure. Catherine is eagerly waiting for her new life to begin but an unexpected visitor forces her towards an unfamiliar destination and a future she did not anticipate. Twenty-one years later, she returns to the same railway station and is confronted by the past she has turned her back on.

At the centre of both plays is Tom, the model railway enthusiast.

Tom, who’s been reading other people’s letters. Tom who’s also Sam.

Using a range of theatrical styles and storytelling devices, this quirky and playful ensemble piece tells the story of our relationship to the past and to the future and the constantly changing nature of our hopes and dreams. The abandoned railway lines, heritage stations and derelict platforms of Hampshire’s railway history form the backdrop of this new play.

Tickets are available at the box office and also available from the Spring and the Spring Website.

Hayling Island Amateur Dramatic Society present:

The Happiest Days Of Your Life

by John Dighton

In this favourite 1940s farce, a bureaucratic mix-up puts a boys' school and a girls' school together in the same premises.

Look out for warring head teachers, love-struck staff and a rebellious school porter - not to mention mischievous pupils, flat tyres and sticky moments with treacle.
