Deckchairs

Deckchairs

A Bear Pit Theatre Company Production

Five twist in the tail playlets from the Deckchairs series, brilliantly written by Jean McConnell. Set in glorious gardens or on a seaside promenade, and a mix of funny and poignant, each delightful play runs approximately fifteen minutes.

Directed by Lynda Lewis

From Deckchairs, Doggies is a hilarious tale about two dog owners.

Performed by Jane Grafton and Steph Jepson

From Deckchairs 4, in Garden Pests two knowledgeable gardeners meet in a magnificent garden and take a very keen interest in the plants.

Performed by David Derrington and Steve Farr

From Deckchairs 2, Theatrical Digs is a farcical battle of wits, work, agents and mobile phones between a glamorous, conceited actress and an eccentric older performer.

Performed by Margot McCleary and Imogen Tong

From Deckchairs 4, The Guilt Card concerns a woman whose life is blighted by the machinations and emotional blackmail of her sickly elder sister.

Performed by Margot McCleary and Imogen Tong

And from Deckchairs, in Outdoor Pleasures we find long-suffering Deirdre waiting for an outdoor production of Much Ado About Nothing to start, accompanied by her awkward and far-from-enthusiastic Aunt Tottie.

Performed by Tracy Humphries and Steph Jepson
