Dying Out Loud - 3 Comedy Tales with a Twist
Come and join Heckington Players in their latest onstage production since to pandemic began.
These 3 plays are full of laughs mixed with some dark humour and subject lines.
Ledge, Ledger and Legend – Written by Paul Elliott, Directed by Callum Thomas
This show begins dramatically when Peter crawls out onto a ledge prepared to jump. There he meets J.M., a professional suicide counselor who will make sure that Peter goes out in style. J.M. guides Peter through all the problems of a successful suicide—how to obtain a crowd, how to hold the audience, how to build tension, how to obtain television coverage and, finally, when and how to jump. Then a rival suicide counselor appears. P.J. reveals that J.M. is a bust as a suicide counsel or he’s fouled up every suicide attempt he’s had. For example, there was the client who wanted to electrocute herself and J.M. managed to burn down her whole house—but the old lady came out without a scratch. At this point, Peter asserts himself and the play ends with a humorous reversal!
Done and Dusted – Written and Directed by Kei Bailey
Murder in Little Grimley – Written by David Tristram, Directed by Laura Griffin
Murder in Little Grimley is the sixth play in the hugely popular Little Grimley series, which follows the antics of a hapless Amateur Dramatic Society desperate for audiences. Anxious to cash in on the public’s appetite for detective dramas, the Chairman Gordon writes a whodunnit. But in a bizarre twist, he then finds himself embroiled in a real-life murder mystery that threatens to put him behind bars. The quarrelsome quartet have been in some sticky situations over the years. But can they possibly get away with murder?
