Geddington Amateur dramatic Society(GADS) has just successfully produced another play in it’s 56th year. Caught in the Net by Ray Cooney was a challenging script as the action takes place simultaneously in two separate houses with overlapping dialogue and many quickfire responses. A classic farce in which, on the single set, the audience can see and hear all but the characters are “oblivious” to the action in the other house. The cast rose to the challenge and delivered excellent and hilareous performances on all 4 nights that it ran.
Audiences were good and began reacting to the comical events they witnessed from the outset of each performance, right through to the final revelation in the last minute of the story. That could only be topped by the last entrance on set of “Dad” in his bright red bathing trunks with his Long Johns underneath! Many laughs were had, both on and off stage and many members of the audience said they hadn’t laughed so much in years.
One audience member commented to Geddington.net “Congratulations to all the cast of ‘Caught in the Net’ – very well done and how clever the stage set was”.
The next production is now being prepared for a run in November – so look out for further information on that in the near future. If anyone would like to get involved with GADS, on or off stage please contact Jane Tysoe 742426 or come along to our AGM on May 21st at 7.30 at the Village Hall.
