Feel-good comedy to be shown in Huntingdon

A FEEL-good comedy where everybody gets what they deserve and learns the importance of being true to themselves is coming to Huntingdon.

Huntingdon Drama Club present Port Out, Starboard Home! at the Commemoration Hall from tomorrow (Thursday, July 22) to Saturday (July 24) at 7.30pm.

The play has been written by Richard James who appeared with the drama club in the late 1980s, before studying at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School. He has since appeared professionally on stage, on television and in films, and there have been over 200 performances of his plays in nine countries.

He said: “Port Out, Starboard Home! is a comedy with just a hint of darkness at its heart. Comedy plays, I believe, always work best when populated by dysfunctional characters trapped together, and Brian and Jackie are two such creations. Following her Shirley Valentine moment, however, Jackie ultimately finds the way out she was looking for... ‘The heart of the play, though, belongs to Stewart’s struggles to appease his mum while being true to his own self”’
