Thes­pi­ans gear up for Noel Cow­ard clas­sic

Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

AN am­a­teur dra­mat­ics group is end­ing its sea­son on a high with a per­for­mance of a clas­sic Noel Cow­ard com­edy.

Mac­cles­field Am­a­teur Dra­matic So­ci­ety (MADS) will per­form ‘Easy Virtue’ at the Lit­tle Theatre, on Lord Street, from June 22 to 27.

The story is about young English­man John Whit­taker who mar­ries Larita, a mod­ern Amer­i­can woman, soon af­ter they meet in the French Riviera.

While his fa­ther ap­proves, John’s for­mi­da­ble mother couldn’t be more op­posed to the union.

A hi­lar­i­ous bat­tle be­tween the rep­u­ta­tion of the Vic­to­rian gen­try and the Art Deco era of the roar­ing 20s en­sues.

Di­rec­tor Kayleigh Smith said: “When peo­ple think of Noel Cow­ard, they think of frothy tales of com­i­cally dys­func­tional fam­i­lies who lounge about and smoke to a back­ing track of ‘Mad About the Boy.’ And this pro­duc­tion fea­tures all those things, I wouldn’t want to dis­ap­point now would I?”

Tick­ets are on sale now at tick­et­ mad­sthe­atre or by phone on 01625 611974.
