The Barford Drama Group production of Pam Valentine’s Comedy ‘Day of Reckoning’ (Directed by Jan Bradley and Mary Geisler), was performed on June 9th, 10th, 11th in Barford Memorial Hall.
Set on a winter’s night, the committee meet to discuss arrangements for the village summer fete. Bickering and gossip reveals the personalities involved – Pauline, the vicar’s long-suffering wife, elderly Mavis, horsy Marjorie, busybody Ethel and Sally, the brisk Army wife – along with a whole host of others.
Six months later, the events of the fete are related with humour, pathos and an upbeat ending – An intriguing picture of village life with plenty of humour and some surprising revelations on the ‘Day of Reckoning’.
Any similarity to life in Barford is purely coincidental…!!!
