Presented by: 16th Ave Theatre
Our next production, on stage from 9th July until 24th July 2021, is playwright Alan Ayckbourn’s 75th play – Neighbourhood Watch. Well known 16th Ave Theatre director Denis Smith is the director of this funny play.
Brother and sister Martin and Hilda Massie live together and lead a quiet, Christian existence in the confines of the Bluebell Hill Development. Just as they are preparing for a housewarming gathering, their peace is shattered by a young trespasser in their garden. The Massies’ neighbours congregate in their living room and together they agree to form a neighbourhood watch group to safeguard against further incidents. Matters swiftly escalate, complicated by Martin’s burgeoning romance with Amy, wife of Gareth, who was formerly involved with Luther, husband of Magda. What begins as a well-intentioned scheme for a safer community ends in violence and acrimony.
