Rising unemployment, issues in Europe, fuel costs and security worried in the Middle East?
Sound familiar? But these topics are the backdrop to Penicuik Community Theatre Group’s forthcoming one-act play, which is set in 1979 as Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher comes to power.
Womberang, by Sue Townsend, is a black comedy focusing on the lives of several women at a gynaecological clinic openly discussing the problems they have faced and are facing from child birth, relationships, family, sex, work and money.
The show, which lasts approximately 1 hour 15 minutes, will be performed in Penicuik Town Hall from Thursday, May 3, to Saturday, May 5. Tickets are on sale by e-mail or from the Best Seller, High Street, Penicuik.
