Lymington Players


Written by Alan Ayckbourn
Directed by Pauline Combes

Alan Ayckbourn wrote five one act plays of which Lymington Players are performing the first four.

Mother Figure is about a mother (Lucy) totally absorbed in bringing up her children, so much so that everyone is treated as a child.

In Drinking Companions, we see Harry (Lucy’s husband) chatting up two girls in a bar; is he lonely or lecherous?

Between Mouthfuls stars the waitress who moves between two tables, and we hear what she hears when the couples talk, then argue, then fall out.

Gosforth Fete is about a typical village trying to raise money to build a new village hall. Everything goes wrong that can go wrong, starting with the inadvertent disclosure to everyone that Millie is pregnant – and not with her Scout master fiancé, but the local landlord, Gosforth.

Please note this performance may contain some themes which may cause offence and flashing lights.
