The Algarveans are back with new show and new venue

The Algarveans Experimental Theatre is back and ready to perform with a few post-pandemic lockdown changes.

Firstly, the group has found new premises in which to rehearse and perform. While they will continue to use the Carlos do Carmo Auditorium in Lagoa for large-scale productions, the group is excited to welcome audiences to its new venue located in the União Juventude de Sesmarias near Carvoeiro.

“Dubbed ‘The Little Theatre’, this space is perfect for smaller productions, plays, revues and social events, and provides audience capacity for up to 100,” says the theatre group.

The Algarveans are excited to open with “Duets” written by Peter Quilter and directed by veteran director and actor, Jim Landis, to be performed on October 22 and 23 at 7.30pm.

“Duets” is a light-hearted, four-part comedy examining the chaotic world of love and relationships. Jonathan and Wendy are on a blind date and hoping to get it right this time, despite having failed many times before; Barrie is not really interested in women but Janet sees that as no reason to stop trying; Shelley and Bobby have decided to holiday in Spain to finalise their divorce whilst drowning in cocktails; Angela is marrying for the third time, to her brother Toby’s dismay and amidst a barrage of bad omens and a dress resembling a parachute.

The cast and crew, consisting of old and newly-recruited members treading the boards for the first time with The Algarveans, are hoping to offer an evening of great entertainment.
