Drama group’s ‘perfick’ show
The Airdrie Arts Guild Drama Group ha s announced its next big spectacular stage show – and its set to be a “perfick” production to mark the organisation’s 50th anniversary.
The talented thespians are heading to 1950s Kent for their adaptation of hit nineties TV show The Darling Buds of May.
Ti c k e t s for the performances – taking place at Airdrie’s Sir John Wilson town hall from May 16- 18 – are on sale now, with demand sure to be high.
A spokesperson for the group said: “Now that the dust has settled on our highly successful festive pantomime, Mother Goose, we are delighted to announce that the 50th anniversary play, which we will be performing for the first time ever, will be The Darling Buds of May.
“Based on the popular 1990s television comedy series which starred David Jason, Catherine ZetaJones, Pam Ferris and Philip Franks, it is also an adaptation of the 1958 novel of the same name, and its sequels, by H.E. Bates.
“Set in rural 1950s Kent, it follows the life of the Larkin family; come along and see the hilarious storyline of Pop and Ma Larkin alongside their eldest daughter Mariette, who eventually marries tax inspector, Cedric ‘Charlie’ Charlton.
“This fun-packed play will be a real treat for Monklands audiences and we hope as many people as possible turn out to join us.”
