Original Theatre returns to the Depozitory at 7.30pm on Thursday, June 19, with a brand new, prize winning play.
‘Music on a Distant Shore’ was runner up in the theatre group’s playwriting competition, which attracted entries from all over the world. Written by David Weir, it is a funny and poignant look at how a bereaved wife, Elaine, and her teenage son Kevin struggle to build a new life for themselves, while keeping a connection with the man who had such an influence on them, and who they miss so much.
The play, set in Scotland, features live Scottish fiddle music, and the cast also includes Alma, the medium with a dubious past, and Arthur, who has a special reason for continuing to employ Elaine, despite her dismal record at telephone sales.
‘Music on a Distant Shore’ is being performed for one night only at the Depozitory, and tickets are £7.50 with no booking fee atwww.wegottickets.com/originaltheatre
Original Theatre specialises in new and original drama, and is building a reputation for quality performances. The group won rave reviews for its most recent production of The Truth Untold.
Kevin Wilson, who founded the group two years ago, said: “We are keen to share the excitement of new work with a wider audience, and we are so pleased to be building up a loyal following on the Island and beyond. We are looking forward to our return to the wonderful Depozitory with this lovely and atmospheric play.”
