The­atre group on tour

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Tonight’s Tv -

STAM­FORD Se­nior Youth The­atre (SSYT) will be tak­ing to the road this sum­mer to present the play Talk-Ease to schools, youth groups and com­mu­nity cen­tres.

Writ­ten and di­rected by Mary Ben­zies, Talk-Ease tells the story of Simon, a 16-year-old who is ob­sessed with the silent movie era.

His ec­cen­tric black and white on screen “friends” has helped him cre­ate a se­cluded, silent world where he can be a hero, ro­man­tic lead and witty co­me­dian all rolled into one.

That is un­til he stum­bles across a well known so­cial net­work­ing site on his com­puter and dis­cov­ers that mak­ing real friends is a lot eas­ier than he’d imag­ined. “For who needs voices when you have Face­book?”

The Talk-Ease tour is fully booked with 10 dates in to­tal through­out June and July.

Au­di­tions for new mem­bers will be held on July 12, 19 and 21 at Stam­ford Arts Cen­tre and take the form of a group work­shop fol­lowed by short in­for­mal in­ter­views.
