29th – 31st May 2014
Phoenix Theatre, Ross-on-Wye
We are very excited to announce that we will be revisiting our 2013 Spring show, Mammals. We had a fantastic time putting it on at The Rondo and received some lovely feedback. So, we decided to dig out the animal onesies and the purple cords and have been booked by The Phoenix Theatre in Ross-on-Wye to appear from 29th-31st May.
We’re thrilled to be able to do this as it was so much fun the first time round. However, this time there will be the added bonus that we’ll be raising money for the Prader-Willi Syndrome Association. This is a charity which has been operating for over 30 years and is the only organisation in the UK that is dedicated solely to supporting people with Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS), their families, carers and professionals, in managing the impact of PWS, promoting transformational interventions, supporting positive, healthy lifestyles as well as more fulfilling life chances, enhancing quality of life and maximising the opportunity to fulfil potential.
A marriage is in crisis following husband Kev’s revelation to his wife Jane that he is in love with someone else. The arrival of Kev’s best friend, with his whirlwind of a girlfriend, triggers a series of confessions that threaten to upturn all of their lives. The strain becomes unbearable for Jane during increasingly desperate attempts to discuss their problems, whilst hiding the truth from their two young daughters.An insightful and often painfully amusing drama that opens a window on a woman’s struggles as she comes to terms with the sacrifices she has made to be a mother.
Lisa Thrower, who plays Jane, has a niece with PWS who lives in Ross-on-Wye, so this fundraising effort means a lot to her and her family.
We’ll update you with more news nearer the time, but we really hope to see you there!
