On Thursday the 4th of June we held a storytelling evening in aid of Nepal at Fred’s Ale House.
The evening was organised by Jemma Cowen. Some people read their own poetry and stories while others read treasured pieces by established writers.
An entertaining mix of funny poems, thought provoking stories and moving wartime narratives were delivered with passion and gusto. Ghostly tales were told, surreal stories read and the evening ended with a rousing song about our beloved council!
It was all in a good cause and £225 was raised on the night. Thanks must go to Lawrence Hennigan for the use of the venue, printing of the posters and a generous donation on the night.
We will be performing poems in relation to food at the Library as part of the Levenshulme Food and Drink festival on the 17th June from 5.30 onwards. Come on down there will be food on offer!
Here is a wonderful review of Abigail’s party written by the lovely Jeremy Hoad for Levy Massive.
We also include some fantastic pictures drawn by Paul Magrs.
“Just back from a fabulous evening at the Klondyke for a performance of Abigail’s Party by the Levenshulme Players. Funny, poignant and sharp as ever with wonderful performances made real by the very talented Beryl Cowen.
Tracy Jesty fulfilled her lead role as Beverley brilliantly with sharp looks, raised eyebrows, pursed lips, cutting remarks and slinky dancing. But the whole cast really brought the play to life, something that is very difficult when it comes from an iconic TV drama.
Sue (Lois Gale) was wonderfully uptight, Tony (Adam Williams) was perfectly taciturn and threatening and you could feel how much Angela (Jill Brideman) was trying to have fun and be liked. The key moment for Lawrence (Gary Pearson) in the second act was extremely well realised and better judged than the original in my view with an edginess leading up to it that made you both dislike and sympathise for the character.
A simple set sat perfectly in the retro ambience of the Klondyke (I want those orange cushions) and the sound and lighting were unobtrusive and spot on.
If you’re not planning on going to see this already you should change your plans. It’s on tomorrow night as well.
Demis Roussos will haunt you if you don’t go to see Levenshulme Players’ Abigail’s Party.
Paul Magrs was also busy drawing during the performance tonight.”
The production Of Abigail’s Party at the Klondyke was a great success and we are now planning the next few months events. Well done everyone to the cast and back stage staff.
