    "Fun and laughter is in store in Dorchester Drama's festive production of "Life and Beth" by much loved playwright Alan Aykbourn.

    It is Christmas, and Beth Timms is mourning the recent death of her health and safety officer husband, Gordon. Beth's Sister-in-law Connie and son Martin have come to stay, determined to ensure that she should have a stress-free Christmas, but between Connie's drinking problem and Martin's unspeaking and emotionally volatile girlfriend Ella, their intentions prove to be short-lived. Only David, the local vicar, provides Beth with any comfort, but when he says a prayer for her bereavement he unwittingly summons an unwelcome visitor!

    Chairman Anne Reeve says "we are very excited that local professional actors Paul Lawless and Richelle Khan are co directing the production. They have brought a lot of enthusiasm, commitment and fun! This will be a lovely way to start the festive period".

    Cast members include regulars Stella Hollis as Beth, Nick Heape as Gordon and Sarah Hayes as Connie. The group is always keen for new members and is delighted to welcome three newcomers to the group, Ashley Newman, Tony Atkins and Katherine Kennet. Emma Follis and Sam Kelly make up the remainder of the cast."
