Fiona will now take the winning team to Nairn on the Saturday, but please do try to attend both nights if you can.

Our first own production of 2014 will be the tense spy thriller “Pack of Lies” by Hugh Whitemore, directed by Stephen Vincent. This is a dramatisation based on the discovery of real spies in suburban Britain during the late 1950s. Recently the BBC ‘The One Show’ programme featured the story and house at the centre of the Kroger spy ring.
This opportunity for really strong acting roles requires a cast of 3 male and 5 female actors: a pleasant, normal married couple with a feisty teenage schoolgirl daughter, who becomes close friends with their exotic, new, ‘Canadian’ neighbours, a couple with a bookish husband and an outgoing vivacious wife. Into the families’ lives comes the mysterious gentleman from Scotland Yard and his two women ‘police officers’ who “insist” on using the suburban home to watch for the spies. A highly charged scene of betrayed friendship builds to a shocking climax especially for the daughter on the cusp of life. Is it ever possible for the average, relatively powerless, man or woman to make anything more than a token stand against officialdom?
The first reading was held on Monday 3rd March 2014 at 7.30pm in The Florians Theatre.
The Casting reading is on Monday 10th March 2014 at 7.30pm in The Florians Theatre.

Production dates are Wednesday 28th to Saturday 31st May 2014, at 19:30.
