[Characters] [Mercury Review]
The Stevenage Lytton Players
Box Office: 0870 777 7619
The Stevenage Lytton Players Autumn 2007 Drama Production was Frank Vickery's Comedy Trivial Pursuits performed at the Lytton Theatre.
A summer evening's barbecue is the setting for a meeting of the Trealaw and District Operatic Society. Next season's play is being announced but Nick, the Society's business manager, has promised a different show and the plum roles to four different people. As the evening progresses each character's foibles and talents are revealed: Joyce, once talented and well meaning, is a lush; Teddy is alternately sweet and strident; Derek is pathetic but loveable. The complex relationships between players emerge, as moments of pure slapstick and farce alternate with ones full of real drama and pathos. Not every hitch is resolved, but at the end of this exploration, by turns ironic and serious, of the joys and heartaches of amateur theatrics, we leave the Society intact and its members ready for another season testing the magic and artifice that is theatre.
