cocktail-waitress-silhouettesBy John Godber & Jane Thornton

Directed by Terry Revell

(This excellent comedy replaces ‘Educating Rita’ which had to be cancelled due to temporary withdrawal of performing rights)

Every Town has its Cocktail Bar where everybody wants to be seen. From the check-out girls to the chinless wonders, from the yuppies to the local lads. We are given a wickedly funny glimpse of this world by the four long-suffering waitresses, offering a fascinating view of the reality that lurks behind the Pina Coladas and the practised smiles. Relationships are tested and tempers fray as the evening wears on, but each of them has a story of their own to tell.

curtain-handThe near-legendary Partington Theatre One Act Play Festival now in its 25th year. Not to be missed!

Come and enjoy a great week of One-Act plays. Each evening there will be 2 or 3 short plays with a short critique by a guest adjudicator from G.M.D.F. at the end of the evening.

Every night a different programme of very varied one-act plays presented by theatre groups from all over the area and beyond.  New writing rubs shoulders with famous classics.  Lots to talk about!  Our guest expert will sum up the week and hand out certificates and silverware after the final play.

Tickets cost just £3 per evening or £10 for a bargain festival ticket covering all  6 evenings. Tickets can be purchased at the theatre bar or just come along and pay on the night (unreserved seating).
