2009 - Trivial Pursuits

by Frank Vickery

Trivial Pursuits

Directed by Michael Taylor

A summer evening's barbecue is the setting for a meeting of the Trealaw and District Operatic Society. Next season's play is being announced but Nick, the society's business manager has promised a different show and the plum roles to four different people. As the evening progresses each character's foibles and talents are revealed and the complex relationships between players emerge as moments of pure slapstick and farce alternate with ones of real drama and pathos.
