EVERYBODY loves some light-hearted comedy entertainment during the summer months, and audiences at the Market Place Theatre in Armagh are about to be spoilt with the fantastic comedy drama, ‘Absent Friends’.
Welcome to a tea party you’ll never forget as Alan Ayckbourn’s classic comedy of manners and social embarrassment serves up a slice of deliciously black humour.
When Colin loses his fiancée, his married friends invite him round for comfort over tea and sandwiches. As the tea starts to pour, it’s clear that trouble is brewing with a wickedly funny blend of jealousy, infidelity and barely concealed loathing. Tension starts to boil and maybe Colin isn’t the one who needs help… With friends like these, who needs enemies?
Presented by one of Northern Ireland’s leading amateur companies, Holywood Players, ‘Absent Friends’ will be staged on Friday and Saturday, August 23 and 24, at 8pm.
Tickets are priced £11 and £9 (concession) and can be booked by contacting the Box Office on 3752 1821, or online at www.marketplacearmagh.com
