Following a postponement due to illness, Weeton & Huby Players will finally stage their latest production later this month.
The cast of Eric Chappell ‘s comedy False Pretences are brushing up on their words and moves and the play will be staged at Almscliffe Hall, Huby, on 22 to 24 March 2018.
Originally scheduled for the end of November, the production was called off the day before the dress rehearsal after a cast member, now fully recovered, was rushed to hospital.
Neil Muffett, WHP chairman, said:
With little time to find and rehearse a stand-in, the cast and production team unanimously decided it was best to postpone the November production under the circumstances. Fortunately, all has turned out well and we are raring to go a second time around.
Eric Chappell based False Pretences on his 1990’s TV series The Bounder starring Peter Bowles and George Cole
It focuses on the activities of conman Victor Blake played by WHP veteran Chris Holland, whose money making schemes result in mistrust, confusion and plenty of hilarity.
False Pretences marks the directorial debut of WHP regular Alison Muffitt, supported by experienced producer Pauline Moulsdale.
Will Oakley is also making his debut as Victor’s dubious sidekick Soapy Simpson.
The cast also features regulars Neil Muffitt; award-winning actress Heather Goring; Neve Carey; Mike Harris , with Ben Lock making a return to the Huby stage.
