The Revels Drama Group in Knowle are about to open their next production, Curtain Up!, a comedy by Peter Quilter.

The play follows five women who inherit a derelict theatre from one of their number’s recently deceased husband. Grandmother, mother, daughter, late-husband’s lover and his ex-PA – their objective is the same. To bring the theatre back to life again. After trying various fund-raising schemes, they decide to hold a concert featuring local talent plus a world-famous star who agrees to appear for no fee…but of course their plans go awry.

“Conflict of personalities and determination to succeed in spite of all odds results in some very amusing situations,” says Director Margaret Fulford. “We’ve had a great time at rehearsals and I’m sure the audiences will enjoy this unusual play.”

Curtain Up! runs from Thursday 14th to Saturday 16th May at 7:30pm at Knowle Village Hall. Tickets can be booked from the Box Office on 01564 779801, can be purchased in person from Palmers on Knowle High Street and will be available on the door. Prices are £8 for adults, £7 for concessions and £6 for members.
