Group makes its debut with comedy

A comedy showcase in Seahouses banished the winter blues.

Friday, 20th January 2017, 14:59 pm

A full house at the Seahouses Hub saw A Medium-Sized Night Out – the first public performance by the Seahouses Seaside Amateur Drama Club.

The original piece, written and performed by a cast of nine, started with a fictionalised account of how the club was founded and led to a ‘play within a play’ of its first attempt at a show.

It was a genuine ensemble piece as the audience was treated to everything from slapstick comedy to a speech from Richard III. Somehow, though, it all knitted together into a clever, all-encompassing narrative.

Responding with a standing ovation, audience members described the evening as “a triumph”, “first rate” and “amazing”.
