Festival Play Entry.
In October 2011 Colin Orbaum, a regular director for Horsell Amateur Dramatic Society, wrote to Christopher Reason, who has written many dramas for Radio and TV, including Afternoon Plays and East Enders, for permission to adapt a play he had heard on Radio 4. This became HADS’ Festival entry the following year. The production went on to win great praise and a total of seven awards at the local Woking Drama Association and the Spelthorne & Runnymede Festivals. In 2013 it gained three more awards at the British All Winners Festival.
Now Colin has again obtained the author’s permission to adapt the sequel, “Every Child Matters”, for HADS to perform in this year’s two local festivals with the same successful production team as before and another strong cast including Claire who won the best actress award at both festivals. The play deals once again with themes still currently affecting Social Services and also tells a moving story of human relationships with sincerity and humour.
Whether or not you saw the first play you should not miss the opportunity to see the second at either the Rhoda McGaw Theatre, Woking, on Thursday October 19th or the following week at the Riverside Arts Centre, Sunbury-on –Thames. Your support for Horsell’s entry would certainly be appreciated and we feel sure you will enjoy the evening as a Drama Festival first-timer or a regular.
