Stretton Players’ spring production will be Back Dated, a comedy written by Chris Niblock, one of our members.
Back Dated is a comedy drama about a man and a woman and a whole lot can happen when a man and a woman get together. We’re not just talking about the ‘birds and the bees’ here, though Back Dated is about reproduction, “but not as we know it Jim”.
It’s not Star Trek either, though it does involve travel and it is science fiction, “but not as we…”
You see it’s gender not genre, that’s important in Back Dated, as reluctant hero Ray Flaxman discovers, when a strange young woman comes looking for a mate. It’s the Big Bang all over again as present and future collide, and the continued existence of the male half of the species depends on just one man and one woman.
Rehearsals begin shortly, and the curtain will rise for the first performance of this new play on the 21st of May. Tickets will be available from mid April onwards from John Thomas Florists and Burway Books in Church Stretton and online.
