SLT’s pantomime offering was Alan P Frayn’s version of “Aladdin” and my goodness what a slick and polished production they made of it.

SLT chose a play by Francis Durbridge for their Autumn production which proved to be a most fitting choice. Durbridge was a prolific and popular writer whose works included novels, television and radio plays and latterly plays for theatre. Many will recall listening to the adventures of Paul Temple on the radio.

The setting for this play is ‘Trudy’s Beauty Parlour’ in the small town of Chinquapin, Louisiana, U.S.A. and full marks must go to the designers and builders for creating such a realistic set which even featured running water to facilitate hair washing.

This play by John Godber is about the marriage of Jack (Gary Goodge) and Liz (Karen Davey), with the storyline pieced together from recollections of the annual family seaside holiday, always taken at Blackpool, always at the same time of year, always using the same accommodation and nearly always wet, hence pac-a-macs feature among the costumes.

I thought the very commendable interpretation of this charming story was sensitively and skilfully directed. It was performed by a competent cast that included several young persons who demonstrated some fine acting talent.
