An Evening of One Act Plays


Mar 7, 2016

Two one act plays will be performed:

Such a Parcel of Rogues

A drama by Isabella C. Rae

The impoverished Watson family is ripped apart by the events leading to the Act of Union in 1707. More than three hundred years later, it seems the Hamilton family will also be cursed by their divisions over the referendum for Scottish independence. Can Brenda Hamilton prevail on her offspring to put aside their differences and bury the hatchet (preferably not in each other!)? A play which shows the devastating effects national events can have on the lives of ordinary people. This play contains some strong language. 

Ambush

A drama by Bernard G. High

When Violet Cavendish is at work, a girl arrives unexpectedly at her empty cottage and is recognised as her niece by a well-meaning neighbour. Left alone, the girl drops the pretence, and it is no pleasant surprise which greets Violet on her return, but a conniving escaped prisoner. Does she really want the money she demands, or has she an even more sinister agenda? A tense, exciting and topical play.
