LADIES IN LAVENDER
Oast Theatre, Tonbridge
Adapted for the stage by Shaun McKenna from a short story by William J Locke.
Directed by Stuart McCreaadie
19th – 26th January
Set in a close-knit fishing village in picturesque Cornwall in the mid 1930s, the plot tells of two aging spinsters – the sisters Ursula and Janet Widdington. They have lived all their lives in an isolated cottage that their father bought when he retired from the Navy. The sudden presence of a handsome, vulnerable young man sets off previously restrained emotions of love, pride, rivalry and nurture in this beautifully presented and touching story. Played with much humour it will leave you feeling that it may never be too late for something meaningful to intrude into the most ordinary of lives.
