Kemsing Players are going ‘Crackers’ over the next three nights – and you can still get tickets
THE KEMSING Players autumn production this year is ‘Jacob’s Crackers’, an evening of two one-act comedies written by John Stewart. Both plays are based on the short stories of W. W. Jacobs, a 1940s author who also wrote the tales on which the classic film noir ‘Footsteps in the Fog’ and the cult horror film ‘The Monkey’s Paw’ are based.
The stories that John has chosen to adapt for the Players are in a much lighter vein. In the first, ‘The Bequest’, a life-long bachelor finds himself facing the threat of an unwanted marriage and searches for stratagems to avoid this dreadful fate. In the second, ‘Going off the Rails’, an unexpected turn of events appears to offer the opportunity to make some serious money… but will all go according to plan?
The performances are on Thursday 22 November, Friday 23 November and Saturday 24 November at 8pm at St Edith Hall in Kemsing.
Tickets are £10 (concessions £8 for the Thursday performance only) and are on sale at Dynes Road Dry Cleaners, by phone on 07811 465061 or via e-mail at email@example.com
Tickets can also be purchased on the door on the evening of the performances. The doors and bar open at 7.30pm.
