their breath as she commands the scene.
Cherol’s talent isn’t confined to this one play or simply to acting however. she not only appears in the next play in the programme, but is also the writer of Retail Therapy, the second of the four plays in the programme.
Here, Cherol shows a quick wit which is well suited to Carole Hosie’s shop assistant and Cherol’s own role of the customer.
The quick dialogue is matched by some excellent physical acting, Carole’s searching for her phone is an example. The duo are well matched and do the humour of the piece justice.
Next up is Tram Track Tragedy, billed as a melodrama.

comes with plenty of comedy, combined with some excellent over the top acting. While the audience are humorously prompted to boo and cheer by the chairman, Charles Pittams, throughout the act, even without prompting they would certainly cheer! With a cast of six, word count doesn’t allow for naming and praising each individual, but suffice it to say this is a brilliant piece of acting from all.
The final piece is the hilarious yet thoughtful Lunch Hour. Diane Fagan is perfectly cast as the Manageress, while Ron Scott and Kristy Logan give their characters plenty of depth.
Ron’s physical acting is great, the frustration shows as he tries to convince Kristy’s character to stop arguing about the lives he has made up for them.
This is a great selection of plays and well worth seeing.
