Welcome to Retford Little Theatre


Next Production: Time of My Life

by Alan Ayckbourn

Friday 24th January until Friday 31st January 2020, 7:30pm

Gerry Stratton has organized a family dinner with his sons Glyn and Adam at his favourite restaurant to celebrate his wife Laura’s birthday. Glyn is with his wife Stephanie and Adam has brought along his new girlfriend, an outrageous hairdresser. Gradually, family skeletons intrude on the happy scene: Glyn’s unfaithfulness knows no bounds, the family transport business has been hit by the recession, and Laura has been unfaithful too. Glyn’s story is set more recently and Adam’s further back in time, while at the centre. Gerry and Laura pick apart their marriage and recall first love.

Review: Bothered and Bewildered

Bothered and Bewildered is described by its writer as a ‘comedy drama’; in fact, it is a clear exposé of the devastation of dementia – the bewilderment of the sufferer and the effect on the family – and that makes for a tragic story with some comic relief. This is a very challenging play, and Keri Duffy, who has not produced at the theatre before, has risen to the challenge splendidly.
