1.  Threesome

This week the Inn Theatre Company, well known for presenting Dartmouth Shakespeare Week over the past eight years, are performing "Threesome", three new one-act plays written by Max Brandt, a member of the Company. They explore the consequences of secrets kept, lies told and truths conveniently hidden.

'Hacks' the first of the plays, takes place in the offices of a women's magazine, 'Blush'. You thought the Cold War was a power struggle? It had nothing on what goes on here! Great performances by the female staff and lots of laughs with a hidden twist at the end.

Next up is 'Buying Back The Past'; Albert has a secret; several as it happens. And most what has happened in his life is because of secrets. Those he kept and those that were kept from him. Max Brandt himself gives a moving performance as Albert.

The third play in the cycle is 'Clowns' - a wry look at the competitive streak that seems to run in us all; even if we care not to admit it. And, in the tradition of 'Threesome', there's a skeleton or two that's waiting to be discovered. Look out for a "sparkling" performance from Dartmouth's favourite newspaper reporter!

Performances tonight (Thursday), tomorrow and Saturday at The Guildhall at 7.30pm.  Tickets £8.00 on the door or from the Tourist Information Centre (01803  834224)

2.   Old Tyme Music Hall


To the "delight and delectation" of the audience, the Dartmouth Players recently performed an "Old Tyme Music Hall" evening at Stoke Fleming Village Hall and in the process raised over £1,000 towards the St Clement's Church re-ordering project. Both the cast and audience enjoyed singing along to such old favourites as "Any Old Iron" and "Oh, I do like to be beside the Seaside".

Vicar of Dartmouth, the Revd. Simon Wright said "It was a very enjoyable way of making some money for a very worthwhile cause." He added "The St Clement's Project is to upgrade the facilities in St Clement's Church at Townstal and to create a flexible space in the interior which will not only provide for more inclusive worship, but also for other appropriate activities. When it is complete, It should lend itself to such things as Mother and Toddler groups, coffee mornings, musical events and various other things. It has even been suggested that there could be an internet café. Funds are still needed to complete the work and to equip the building. This includes chairs which people might like to sponsor in memory of a loved one." Anyone wishing to make a donation please contact Simon on 01803 835543.
