The Civic Players present
Laying the Ghost
by Simon Williams
Wednesday 27th -
Saturday 30th November @ 7.45pm
"Laying the Ghost" mixes
laugh-out-loud comedy with sensitive and touching moments.
Margot Buchanan, an ex-actress living in an ex-actor's retirement
home, is trying to forget it's her seventieth birthday but all
those around her are intent on reminding
Even Freda, her eccentric and
psychic best friend, won't let her forget
Worse still, the tabloids are
having a field day with her former husband, Sir Leo Buchanan, who
she would also rather forget.
Unfortunately for Margot, she
is about to have a very eventful day with a number of unexpected
and unwelcome guests. First is Sadie Croft, an aspiring young
actress who wants acting tips for playing a passionate
Juliet. They are interrupted by the arrival of Lady Judy
Buchanan, Sir Leo's current wife, also supposedly trying to mark
the birthday. And then, Sir Leo arrives, firstly as himself
and then as a ghost, adding to the mounting chaos
If that hasn't ruined Margot's special day, then
something else surely will!
Everything finally sorts itself
out but not before a deeply touching ending when Margot receives a
very unexpected birthday gift.
