Theatre Trips

This week’s performance of Taming of the Shrew at the Theatr Clwyd was truly excellent.
One of Shakespeare’s more “accessible” comedies,upon which was based the Cole Porter musical “Kiss Me, Kate”, the play contains laugh-out-loud humour and moments of slapstick comedy which threatened to soak us in our front-row seats! 

This was in contrast to the rather darker, dry humour of the last play we saw:   “Jeffrey Bernard is Unwell”, in which Robert Powell played the eponymous alcoholic, gambling-addicted womaniser, trapped in a pub and reminiscing about the absurd encounters and realationships in his life, through the course of his own private overnight lock-in.

Later this month we’re heading to the Everyman, to see David Morrisey in, ahem, the Scottish Play… Not so many laughs, but I’m sure this will be every bit as entertaining!

Upcoming May / June events

 

There’s loads going on this month! A bunch of us will be heading off to Llangollen to take a trip on the Ale Train, and some more adventurous types will be getting wet and wild, Canyoning on an activity weekend.

 

Meanwhile there are numerous cultural events planned, such as theatre trips, concerts and a film night, to go with the usual quota of meals out and drinks. For details, members can check their bulletin.
