First night for palywright, 82
Talented Wimborne Drama Club are presenting a world first tonight with its staging of Generation Trap.
The light comedy, being performed at Wimborne’s Allendale Centre until Saturday (curtain up 7:45 pm) was written by 82 year old Colehill playwright Stanley Lodge. And proud Mr Lodge of Beaucroft Lane, will be in the first night, front row audience.
Just two weeks ago, the three act play ran into problems after one of the 14 strong cast had to withdraw said group spokesperson Jan Stevenson. But brave Peter Morgan stepped in and will take to the stage for the first time tonight. “He saved us from disaster” said Jan.
The two hour play revolves around an elderly father and mother and attempts by the family to get them to sell their home. Tickets on sale at the door are £3 for adults and £2.50 for children and OAPs
Wimborne stages play’s premiere
It is not often that an amateur dramatic society gets the chance to stage a world premiere but that’s just what happened in Wimborne last week.
Wighty-two year old Wimborne man Stanley Lodge, first wrote Generation Trap as a book but after receiving professional advice he turned it into a play and offered it to Wimborne Drama Club who presented it at the Allendale Centre last week.
The play is fast-moving and chaotic. The cast romped through it with their usual skill and were delighted with the enthusiastic response of the three-night audiences.
The play was produced and directed for the first timeby Barbara Trebilco, and one meber of the cast Peter Morgan, stepped in at the last moment.
