Children perform one-act plays

BOSTON Children’s Theatre are performing three one act plays at Blackfriar’s next week.

On Wednesday and Thursday Group 1 (eight-11 years) will perform The Four Quarters Society by director Judith Hall.

Five bored children playing in the back garden of one of their houses at the beginning of the summer holidays discover that each has a parent born in a different part of the UK.

They form a society to which they invite their school friends and neighbours.

Judith said: “I wrote this play specially for our society as it is very difficult to find plays suitable for children of this age group to perform.”

Group Two (12-16 years) will perform Passion, Poison and Petrification by George Bernard Shaw and the Do-It-Yourself-Frankenstein by David Campton.

The first is a melodrama from the Edwardian era, complete with murder, the eternal love triangle and mayhem while the latter is a futuristic comedy looking at the idea of robots in everyday life.

The shows, at the Spain Lane venue, begin at 7pm. Tickets £6.50 adults and £5.50 concessions.

Boston Children’s Society meets every Tuesday in term time in the Revue Bar at Blackfriars Theatre.

Sessions take place at 5.30-7pm for the younger group and 7.30-9pm for the older group. Entry £4 per session.

Each group performs two plays every year, in January and June.

Workshops are also held for the society members during August.
