Comfort and Joy

Post date: Oct 17, 2014 6:41:59 PM

Nearly all of us have had Christmases which do not go quite as planned. We have ended up with relatives we do not necessarily know very well, and in some cases we do not even like, and once the alcohol flows and the tongues are loosened, long buried resentments come to the surface. Mike Harding, the well known comedian and folk singer/presenter, who you may remember as the “Rochdale Cowboy”, captured this brilliantly in his funny and poignant play, “Comfort and Joy” which will be performed by the Beverley Theatre Company on 6-8 November 2014. We are sure for all those attending, it will be a superb early Christmas present.

The Play is directed by Peter Hamner.

The play features a large cast of twelve, with some familiar faces, as well as introducing Brian Shaw and Natasha Burman who make their debut appearances with the Company.

The Company continues to recruit, so anyone interested in acting or production activities, can email or alternatively, call the Membership Secretary, Denise Dyble on 07856 253311 for an informal chat.

“Comfort and Joy” is at the Memorial Hall, Beverley, from Thursday 6 November to Saturday 8 November 2014, with curtain up at 7.30 pm each evening. A licensed bar is open before each performance and during the interval.

Tickets are available from the Tourist Information Centre, 34 Butcher Row, Beverley and Hallers Shoes, 2 North Bar Within in Beverley, or on the door each night. Ticket prices are £6 Adults, £5 Concessions and £17.50 for a family ticket [2 Adults, 2 Children].

Please note that the Play does contain adult content and strong language.
