Society launches social play readings

WHITBY Amateur Dramatic Society launches a series of social play readings next week.

The play readings are to be held on the first Friday of every month – excluding August – and are open to all members and friends.

Angela Cook, who is organising the readings, told the Whitby Gazette: “The aim is to read plays which are not usually intended for production, just for fun and interest.

“It is also a chance for members to get together outside of rehearsal schedules and those not involved in specific productions to keep in touch.

“It’s also a great opportunity for potential new members to come along and to meet people and find out more about the society.”

The first two readings of the series will be held on Friday 1 April, when the play to be read will be a vintage Ayckbourn, either Table Manners or Relatively Speaking, and Friday 6 May, when it will be Billy Liar, by Keith Waterhouse and Willis Hall.

Both take place at Whitby Conservative Club and start at 7.30pm.
