The Coarse Acting Show

By Michael Green
Directed by Keith Thompson
15th – 23rd October 2004

This selection of rarely-performed masterpieces by the author of the legendary Art of Coarse Acting includes The Cherry Sisters, an undiscovered Chekhov fragment, The Collier’s Tuesday Tea, combining kitchen sink with coal-mine with an irreverent glance at D.H. Lawrence and King Henry the Tenth, Part Seven from a suggestion by William Shakespeare. Plus an over-ambitious attempt to reduce an epic novel to a few scenes, Moby Dick.

Come along and see what can go wrong in amateur drama, whilst the Coarse Cast carry on, firmly believing the audience won’t notice a thing.

Part of the Barn’s 2004-2005 Season.
