A section of this production, involving all ten cast members, will be performed as part of the Centenary Celebrations back in
“our theatre”.

The play was specially written by J B Priestley to give all ten cast members the opportunity to display their acting skills. Everyone will need clear diction and the ability to project their performance to the back of a 565-seat theatre.
