Crawley community theatre group, Pitchy Breath asked local writers to submit scripts, taking inspiration from the idea There’s No Place Like Home.
There was a fantastic response, with more than twenty scripts received, making it difficult for the four directors to choose just a few to be produced.
Five scripts were selected for a new show, which is at The Hawth Studio, Crawley, from Tuesday to Thursday, April 21 to 23 (7.30pm).
Inheritance by Fiona MacIntyre explores the relationship between two brothers clearing out their mother’s house after her death.
In the Dark by Susan Sainsbury takes place during a power cut in the flat of a young woman who is trying to get her lodger to leave.
Alex McIntyre’s Moving On follows thirty-somethings who still live together as if they are students.
Survival Strategy by Donna Hoke is set in an office, with two frustrated colleagues and Millie Barnes’ Furniture World explores the problems that occur in dementia when an older woman mistakes a shop for her home.
The line-up will be completed with three monologues about immigration and the issues surrounding it.
The casting for the performances was a huge success with one of the largest audition turn outs Pitchy Breath has seen, leading to an incredibly talented cast including seven local actors making their debuts.
Tickets for No Place Like Home cost £10 (discounts £9) and are available from 01293 553636 or www.hawth.co.uk.
