Worlds a stage for outsiders
Last updated at 14:58, Monday, 12 May 2008
Six members of Ulverston Outsiders have taken it a step further.
Those who know the whole speech from As You Like It are aware that it outlines seven ages in a man’s life from a mewling and puking infant to schoolboy, lover and soldier and on to frail old age.
Taking this as their starting point the Outsiders have put together a show titled Entrances and Exits.
They have compiled a programme of prose, poetry and even a couple of songs which reflect aspects of the lines of the speech.
Their sources range from the 17th century to the present day and audiences can expect to find classics, comedy and a few surprises.
The cast will be Graham Fair, Jean Hunt, Rob O’Hara, Myra Billingham, Tony Smith and Moira Fair.
They first took the show to Gleaston in February and have since refined it ready for performances at Chetwynde School on May 9 to raise money for the Soroptimists’ charities and Broughton’s Victory Hall on May 10 where the hall will be laid out cabaret style and the audience seated at tables. There will be a bar at both venues.
Tickets are £5 for both shows on the door or on 01229 830595 for Chetwynde or 01229 716115 for the Victory Hall.
