Colyton Theatre Group Summer Play

“The last show is always a very strange affair. It’s like a party, a great buzz of excitement. But then each actor will leave, with laugher still ringing in the air and a cheery wave. Then it stops. And as you watch each of them walk down the street, they look terribly lonely. That’s the thing about it, you see. After all the applause and elation, we walk home alone. And that’s who actors are – the happiest, saddest people you’ll ever meet.”

The actress dramatises the events backstage as a colourful, complicated actress makes her emotional farewell performance. Various people from her life invade her dressing room to say their goodbyes, declare their love, roar with laughter, spit insults, grab a final embrace, and renew old battles.

Bar open at 7pm
Tickets £9 available from: The Little Shop, Colyton 01297 551374; Archway Book Shop, Axminster 01297 33595; Owl & Pyramid, Seaton 01297 598030 and online
