    What a great Plays & Platters 2019 evening’s entertainment. Charlie and Lorraine were absolutely brilliant in ‘Twelve Hour Life’ a real ‘tour de force’ a beautiful story, full of pathos; I can’t imagine it being performed better…!!!

    The cast of ‘And the Bride Wore’ were all outstanding, but for me Kate and Anne’s outfits should be awarded the ‘wardrobe badge of honour’, the transformation was truly miraculous, along with Carole’s blond wig and Chris’s startling wig and red coat. The fun was really shown in Sue’s high kicking and Barbara Offiler’s drinking and Jane’s expressions. Roe did a wonderful job of keeping her unruly ‘customers’ in check, and moving the story along. The best line went to Barbara Winstone: “this Granma is automatic, systematic, hydromatic, but I don’t do diplomatic…!!!” and what a great way to close the play with Vickie ‘swishing’ around in a beautiful white wedding dress.

    A real fun evening, thank you Wendy…!!!
