Outside the Box/Forty Winks Beauty
A double-bill of comedy will bring some autumn cheer to East Yorkshire with the next drama performance by the Market Weighton Community Players. Outside the Box, by JPS Yates, is a one-act play satirising office life where the office workers are nursery toys. Ragdoll is feeling unwanted but news comes from the “HR” fairy that there are to be cuts in the toy department – who will go? This production contains some adult themes. That will be followed by a potted pantomime. In Forty Winks Beauty, written by Richard Tydeman, the star is awakened not by the prince, who is late, but by Charley Prince, a teddy boy! Luckily the day is saved, albeit unwittingly, by the wicked fairy Maud. It is a production written entirely in verse. The comedies will run for four performances from Thursday 7th to Saturday 9th November at Shiptonthorpe Village Hall, Station Road, Shiptonthorpe, YO43 3PG, with evening shows at 7.30pm and a Saturday matinee at 2.30pm. Tickets are £7 on the Thursday and £8 for all other performances, available from the Paper Shop on High Street, reserving by email: email@example.com or on the door.
