On Friday 8th and Saturday 9th March, Fintry is playing host to the first round of the annual SCDA One Act Play Festival and will be welcoming clubs from the Stirling District to the Menzies Hall for two nights of competitive drama.
The FADS entry is 'Mrs G', an as-yet-unpublished play that explores a dark theme through a brief encounter between a male ex-prisoner and a diligent cleaning lady. It's being produced and directed by Ian Turner, with Denver Chalmers and Sarah Walker playing 'The Man' and 'Mrs G'. Rehearsals are zipping along and there will be an open dress rehearsal (i.e. you get to see it for FREE!) on Tuesday 5th March (time TBC), if you’d like to come along and give us some audience support.
Stirling, Strathendrick and Strathkelvin Young Farmers Club will also be competing, with David Tristram's comedy, 'Little Grimley presents Strictly Sex Factor on Ice', an entertaining romp about a struggling amateur dramatic club looking to put bums on seats. There’s an open dress rehearsal for this one as well, on Wednesday 6th February at 9pm. Please note: there’s a public talk in the hall beforehand, so don’t arrive too early!
