Life’s Like That!

Local actors took to the stage for three performances of Life’s Like That! at the Lagoa Auditorium between October 27 and 29.

Audiences laughed out loud during the one act plays and sketches that demonstrated the humour of the little things in life that happen to us all.

Jenny Grainer directed The Skip by Mary Rensten, where five women shared their views on other people’s rejects, while it was all aboard for Nelson’s Driving Test by Damien Trasler, Davis Lovesey and Steve Clark, directed by Lloyd Delderfield.

After the interval it was off to the Bus Stop by Rae Shirley, directed by Sian Hughes-Roberts, where the gossip of the day and misunderstandings rule in the queue before finally the audience was treated to a touch of Laughing Gas by Douglas Furber, directed by Lloyd Delderfield.

Lloyd Delderfield said: “I would like to thank all those involved in putting this production together so quickly. We hope that everyone enjoyed it and that audiences will continue to support The Algarveans in our next production, Honk! The Musical, currently in rehersal with Chris Winstanley directing.”

The performances were dedicated to the memory of Jenny Dackombe, a member of The Algarveans who played Michelle in the performance of `Allo `Allo and who sadly passed away on October 22.
