FOUR sets of characters, four crucial moments.
Huddersfield Thespians’ next play is Duets by Peter Quilter, author of Curtain Up!, Respecting Your Piers and the West End hit Glorious.
Duets tells the stories of Jonathan and Wendy, who are on a blind date and hoping to get it right this time even though they’ve never got it right before.
Barrie, who is not really interested in women, and Janet, who sees that as no reason to stop trying.
Shelley and Bobby have decided to holiday in Spain to finalise their divorce whilst drowning in cocktails, Angela is marrying for the third time to the dismay of her brother Toby and amidst a barrage of bad omens and a dress resembling a parachute.
It’s set to be a gloriously funny examination of the chaotic world of love, relationships and why the grass is never greener.
The Thespians have Daren Wild directing and on stage telling the tales of life will be Marian Feather and John Cohen as Wendy and Jonathan in Blind Date.
Maria Peters and Patrick Hibbin as Janet and Barrie play the leads in Secretarial Skills.
While The Holiday sees Rebecca Starrett and Paul Zarins as Shelley and Bobby take to the stage.
Finally, in The Bride-to-be, Prue Griffiths and Matthew Fairhead play Angela and Toby.
And the Thespians are using the production as an opportunity to raise money for charity.
Tuesday’s show sees the Thespians donate charity tickets with proceeds going to the RSPCA.
The local branch, based in Halifax, cares for sick and injured animals from Holmfirth to Hebden Bridge.
l See Duets at the LBT Syngenta Cellar from May 1-5 with a Saturday matinee. Tickets are available from the Box office on 01484 430528.
