HERE LIES JEREMY TROY, by Jack Sharkey, directed for Milnerton Players by Mari Mocke.
Venue: Milnerton Playhouse
This farce revolves around the main character, Jeremy Troy, who has led his wife, his boss, and his friends, to believe that he is a qualified lawyer. Because one of the partners in the law firm for which he works, has recently died, Jeremy is hoping that he will be promoted to take that person’s place. He has therefore invited his boss, Mr. Sven Ivorsen, who has never met his wife, Kathryn, to dinner.
Charlie Bickle, a friend whom Jeremy has not seen for a long time, turns up unexpectedly at Jeremy’s home, intending to talk his way into being accommodated there for a period of time. Charlie is an artist and he hires Tina Winslow, a model, to come over to Jeremy’s house to sit for a portrait.
Initially Jeremy and Kate are in and out of the house, and there is a merry mix-up before the important dinner-date, during which time it is suggested that the model pretends to be the wife, Kathryn, whom she has also never met, and to prepare the dinner for the boss. When Kate returns before dinner, she is totally confused by the situation and thinks that her husband has been having an affair with Tina behind her back.
However, all’s well that ends well and within all the comedy action there is also a love story.
Backstage & technical people will also be required for stage management, props, costumes, lighting & sound design & operation, set building & painting and rehearsal prompt.

"It Runs In The Family", a classic farce by Ray Cooney, directed by Johan van der Merwe opens at the Milnerton Playhouse on 22 November 2013.
An hilarious farce set in the doctors' common room of a London hospital three days before Christmas. Dr David Mortimore is preparing his lecture for a conference of neurosurgeons that should guarantee him a knighthood and the hospital some badly needed funds when a former nurse bursts in with the news that their fling some 18 years and 9 months ago made Mortimore a father. The boy, emotionally highly strung and under arrest for drunken driving, is downstairs, desperate to meet his long-lost Dad.
In the midst of Mortimore's panic, deception, mistaken identities, double-entendres, puns and flapping doors fuel this high-octane comedy. Lies pile on lies, as Mortimore enlists his colleagues to deceive his wife, his boss, a police sergeant and even his new-found son. Sharp syringes, crashing wheelchairs and window ledge wrestling matches unfold as events begin to spin deliriously out of control.
Performances: 22, 23, 28, 29 & 30 November 2013 at 20:00 and a matineé on 30 Nov. at 14:00
They thought that murder was an art ... and that they would get away with it ...
Adapted from the screenplay by Arthur Laurent, Alfred Hitchcock's thrilling suspense mystery is based upon a play by Patrick Hamilton, which in turn was based upon a true story of a murder that rocked polite society in the 1920s. In order to prove their superior intellects, two talented, well-to-do young men commit "the perfect crime" to illustrate the superman theories of Nietzsche, taught to them by their schoolmaster, Rupert Cadell.
A supper party is then held at the boys' swank uptown New York apartment - the guests invited are friends and family of the victim, as well as their former teacher Rupert. Events build up to a shocking climax. In true Hitchcock fashion, the tense, edgy script provides a taut, entertaining and nail-biting piece of theatre.
Ideal for celebrating the start of the festive season, this play will have you sitting on the edge of your seat.

The combination of a mouse, an aspirant model, an incompetent electrician, an Italian film director who can’t speak English and a walk-in cupboard make for hilarious situations which will leave the audience gasping for breath.
Mistaken identities and cover-ups abound in this uproariously funny farce revolving around the frantic efforts of a young couple to keep their marriage secret so that she can take a much needed job.
‘Flat Spin’ is classic British farce at its best - good, old-fashioned, fun entertainment.
