STAG’s next Production

stag_small[1]STAG presents our next production for 2013: Laying the Ghost, by English playwright Simon Williams, directed by Robert Harsley, at the Strathmore Community Hall from August 15 to 25.

This moving, witty play is set in a retirement home for actors.  The plot revolves around ex-actor Margot Buchanan who does not want to be reminded that it is her 70th birthday!  Unfortunately for her, most of the residents around her are keen on celebrating it! The cast includes an interesting collection of characters: Freda, Margot’s psychic friend; the no-nonsense manager of the home; Margot’s ex-husband Sir Leo Buchanan – a philanderer and womaniser; Judy his current wife; and an aspiring young actress. Sir Leo unfortunately suffers a fatal heart attack – and the scene is set for much chaos and hilarity as his ghost appears, anxious to sort out matters between his three women….. but visible only to Freda.  Everything does sort itself out….but not before a deeply touching ending when Margot receives a very unexpected birthday gift!
