Full houses for St Alban’s Players

St Alban’s Players in Westbury Park performed Alan Ayckbourn’s Relatively Speaking to full and enthusiastic houses over three nights at St Alban’s Hall.

Relatively Speaking was the first of Ayckbourn’s plays to be a major hit in the West End. It’s a delightful and funny tangle of deceit and misunderstanding with mistaken identity and
motivation at its heart.

Director Chris Morison created two memorable sets - the bedsit and the garden - and came up with a clever way of making a quick change between the two, despite cramped backstage and wings.

He also depended on a well practised and energetic stage manager and crew.

The cast was as follows: Ginny – Pamela Moline 

Greg – David Evans

Philip – Adrian Brown

Sheila – Gill Cowen

Under Chris’s direction the cast presented well-rounded, believable characters and found the maximum number of laughs in this comedy drama.

“This is my second Ayckbourn production as director and designer,” said Chris.

“I was delighted the set and scene change got its own applause, but that the actors received even more and a lot of laughter.

“Relatively Speaking was a huge team effort and I’m grateful for the energy, skill and commitment of all involved.”

St Alban’s Players are holding a play reading and social at The Eastfield Inn from 7.30pm on Tuesday, 16th June and people who are interested in meeting the team and finding out more about the Players will be welcome.

November’s production will be announced soon.

Pictured, the group drew full houses for Alan Ayckbourn’s Relatively Speaking at St Alban’s Hall – Adrian Brown with Gill Cowan and David Evans with Pamela Moline.
