This year Poole & Parkstone Productions celebrates its 100th anniversary, and what better way to start the celebrations than with the P&P Player’s lavish production of the comedy Make Way For Lucia. Based on the hilarious E.F Benson’s novels. Written in the 1920s and 30s, it brings the war for social supremacy between Lucia and Miss Mapp in the small coastal town of Tilling to the stage with all the wit, irony and gentle mocking humour of the original novels.
Up until now, Tilling’s doyenne has been Miss Mapp; Lucia is the supreme poseuse who peppers her speech with Italian phrases she doesn’t understand, and for whom the word ‘defeat’ exists in no language. So when Lucia rents Miss Mapp’s house for the summer and her confidant Georgie joins her, the battle lines are drawn as the two ladies engage in an art exhibition, a garden fete and evenings of musica. But who will win?
Make Way for Lucia- Thursday 21st- Saturday 23rd February 2019
Performances at 7:30pm with a matinee performance on Saturday 23rd at 2:30pm.
