Honiton Players will achieve a new milestone when they launch performances of no less than four pieces of new writing at the Mackarness Hall.
The evening of original local drama will feature new work by writers from Honiton.
First up is a play by John Gregory. More about the others in the coming weeks.
John has written The Duplicate Husband, a comedy about the dream of many a woman to change the ways of their partner just a little.
Set in the Tate St Ives art gallery on a wet November afternoon, a disgruntled Fiona (played by Jo Harvey-Ingram) arrives with husband Tony (Equity member Adam Smith-Jones) to view a less than impressive display of Modern Art.
They come across the strangely weird Molecule Duplicator, and its even odder originator Gordon McPherson (Shaun Bonetta).
Suffice it to say, Gordon McPherson’s machine has a capability to copy humans, despite never having been properly tested.
Tony gets duplicated, becoming amalgamated with the inventor’s cat - who found the duplicator a snug place to sleep. Fiona decides which version of her husband can survive. What would you do?
Performances are on Friday, July 6, and Saturday, July 7, and start at 7.30pm with a (reduced entrance price) matinee on at 2.30pm on the Saturday.
