Most ages have some flexibility except for Harvey. The characters are middle class in some ways but they are settled in their family life with their 2-4 children. No particular accents own voices
The Bunkers always have the Christmas celebrations at their home and this year is no exception. The usual people are there including Bernard’s usual unwanted puppet show. It is a middleclass house hold with all the trimmings, but with some unfulfilled women, oblivious men and children who are never seen or heard but talked about and spoken to during the play. The three days of this Christmas are changed when a good looking interesting young man is invited by Rachel. Some of the ladies in the house have a very different emotionalf three day Christmas celebration this year, thanks to the appearance of Clive.
Any questions contact Kath or Barry 01204 699156 We could also do with a prompt willing to attend most rehearsals and the week of the show.
