Mixed Doubles - tickets available now, don't miss out...

THE LADS are performing Mixed Doubles: An Entertainment on Marriage at the end of November – the group’s first production in nearly two years.

Mixed Doubles takes the form of eight short plays, each for two characters. Each is an independent play in its own right but the whole sequence, linked by a series of wickedly anti-authoritarian monologues written by George Melly, adds up to an amusing, wry and well-observed picture of the journey that can be married life from honeymoon to cemetery.

The characters in Mixed Doubles appear to be plagued by everyday trivialities, their pasts, their jobs, and their marital problems – married life, after all, is not always straight forward.

It was first produced at the Hampstead Theatre Club in 1969.

Each play was written by a different playwright, so there are plays by Alan Ayckbourn, John Bowen, Lyndon Brook, David Campton, Alun Owen, Harold Pinter, James Saunders and Fay Weldon.

Mixed Doubles will be performed at Llanymynech Village Hall from November 25-27 at 7.45pm. Numbers are limited, so please make sure you buy early to avoid disappointment.

Tickets are available online from Ticket Source, from Llanymynech Village Shop, or from Marg on 01691 830558.

LADS Summer Madness

Who's up for some drama fun?

We can't wait! We're planning a fun workshop picnic day at the beginning of July - watch this space for details. We'd also like to carry on doing one-off playreadings, but maybe actually in a room together... And we're hoping that in the Autumn we will be able to bring some sort of performance together for our local audiences. 

THANK YOU to all our members who have pulled together over the last year and have kept the spirit of LADS alive. See you soon!!
