An amateur theatre group is back with another production at Alnwick Playhouse next week.

Following on from the success of last summer’s play Bird Song, Alnwick Theatre Club’s next play at Alnwick Playhouse, from Wednesday until Saturday, May 21, will be the bitter sweet romance and sexy black comedy Kiss Me like You Mean It, written by Chris Chibnall, whose has numerous television credits.

On a midsummer’s night Tony and Ruth meet at a party in a shabby terrace house in Manchester. Next door Don and Edie, married for years, are having a party of their own, only gradually does its purpose become apparent. As the night progresses love is in air.

The young couple will be played by newcomer Molly Reading and Harry Brierley, who discovered his thespian talents at the Duchess’s High School where he performed in various musicals and plays, notably playing Heathcliff in Wuthering Heights.

The more mature couple will be performed by Oliver Pusey and Carol Lawrence, who have previously played the title roles in Alnwick Theatre Club’s productions of Amadeus and Educating Rita.

And Ben Kinloch will be making his directorial debut before heading off to East 15 Acting School.

Tickets are available from the Box Office on 01665 510785.
