Everton Village Players

Variety is the spice of life, it’s said, and there’s plenty of it in Unravelled, a collection of six short plays being performed by The Workhouse Players in collaboration with Everton Village Players.

The plays tell tales of the lives of ordinary people. A medley of characters unravels the twists and turns of their stories that are funny and poignant, even sinister. Characters such as:

  • Audrey who, as she winds wool, talks of the painful reason why she has to face her fear of driving over the Humber Bridge.
  • Two people having a revealing conversation in the grounds of a stately home.
  • Clive, a pensioner and an Elvis impersonator who gets into hot water with his drainpipes.
  • Mr Sinclair who has a strange disturbing tale.
  • Jean who explains why she is secretly knitting in a café under the skewed gaze of the owner.
  • The couple with a captivating tale, that meet on a hill.

Workhouse Players actors Amanda Austen, Sue Hill, Phil Jones, Laura Martin and Dean Woolley display their multitude of talents in this production written by award winning playwright Gill Blow.
Unravelled can be seen at Everton Village Hall on 1st, 2nd and 3rd June. Tickets at £6 (£5 for students) are now on sale. Book yours by calling the Everton Village Players Box Office on 01777 817395 or by visiting the website at www.evertonvillageplayers.co.uk.
