Life and Beth by Alan Ayckbourn

 

 

Get ready for an unusual ghost story:

Recently widowed Beth Timms is facing her first family Christmas since the death of her Health & Safety Officer husband, Gordon. Despite the fact that she would rather be alone, her son, Martin, together with his new girlfriend, Ella, have decided to join her to help cheer her up during the festivities. Beth’s boozy sister-in-law, Connie, completes the family circle. But when an uninvited guest comes to visit, brought on by the inadvertent request of the local clergyman, Beth must decide how to get on with her life in a manner not seen in the hitherto 33 years of her marriage.

 

Sir Alan Ayckbourn’s 71st play is a supernatural comedy and ensures a bewitching evening of entertainment. The play is directed by Jason Couch

Twelve Angry Jurors (Twelve Angry Men)

 

 

A man is dead. The life of another is at stake.

Twelve jurors must decide the fate of a young boy in this gripping 1950s courtroom drama. A behind-closed-doors look at the American legal system sees a diverse group of twelve jurors sweat it out in New York on the hottest day of the year. One man stands alone in the pursuit of justice. The fierce and passionate conflict which follows cuts straight to the heart of the issues of civil liberties and social justice.

 

With a life in their hands and death in their minds, is there enough reasonable doubt of his guilt to fulfil this grave responsibility and reach a unanimous verdict?
