READING/AUDITIONS FOR ‘SEPARATE TABLES’ BY TERENCE RATTIGAN TUESDAY JUNE 20/THURS 22 AT CARPENDERS PARK COMMUNITY HALL - NEXT BELMONT PLAY
I am quite sure that Belmont Theatre Company’s next production – Separate Tables – will be familiar to most of the members. We are performing it from October 25th – 28th. You will recall that it is actually two one act plays both taking place in Beauregard Private Hotel in Bournemouth.
I am intending to amalgamate the two plays so that the two featured storylines occur concurrently – which is how it was presented on film and television.
One storyline concerns a down-at –heel journalist confronted by his ex-wife, a former model. They had a volatile marriage, which ended when he was imprisoned for physical violence towards her. This ruins his budding political career. After many years and another failed marriage she tracks him down – realizing that she is still in love with him.
The second storyline concerns a “self made” army major whose loneliness and insecurities lead him into reckless behaviour and criminal charges are brought. He receives comfort from an unlikely source – a timid spinster overshadowed by her domineering mother.
Another essential character in the problem solving for both storylines is the capable and self- sacrificing hotel manager Miss Cooper. There are other interesting guests staying at the hotel each with their own interesting background story.
