A PORTADA Theatre Group will be presenting
Alan Ayckbourn’s play, Time of
My Life, at Paderne’s Casa do Povo tonight
(April 28) and tomorrow night (April
29), and later at Loulé’s cinema on May 5
and 6, each performance starting at 8pm.
Time of My Life is set in Gerry Stratton’s
favourite restaurant, where he has organised
a small family dinner with his sons, Glyn
and Adam, to celebrate his wife Laura’s 54th
birthday. Glyn brings his long-suffering wife,
Stephanie, and Adam, his new girlfriend,
Maureen; both are eager to impress. The
occasion suggests a happy domestic
scene, but gradually family skeletons come
tumbling out of the closet. Glyn’s story
moves forward in time, Adam’s moves backwards,
while at the centre, Gerry and Laura
pick apart their marriage and recall first love.
Starring Nikki Moran, Tom Hardy, Simon
Tancott, Andrew Aston, Touche Smyth,
Marcia Meeuwissen and Dave McClellan,
tickets are 12 euros per person. To reserve
your place, call 289 367 073 for Paderne
and Loulé, or 289 400 600 for Loulé only.
Look out for the review of the first night in
next week’s edition of The Resident!
