Just Between Ourselves (theatre)

As part of this year's Hailsham Arts Festival, Hailsham Theatres are presenting Just Between Ourselves, a play by Alan Ayckbourn. The local amateur group has been active in the town for over sixty years originally being Conrose Players and C.A.T.S. until the two groups joined forces. Hailsham Theatres is the result. They perform plays and pantomimes with their usual venues being Summerheath Hall and Hailsham Pavilion.

Just Between Ourselves is set over a period of just under a year and follows the relationships of two couples - Dennis and Vera, Neil and Pam - as each one celebrates their birthday. Dennis is quietly destroying his wife, Vera, with his constant undermining and belittling of her while Neil and Pam's cosy coupledom is also showing strain. The play was first performed in 1976 and shows Ayckbourn at his most perceptive. The Hailsham Theatres performance will be directed by Sam Elsby.

Summerheath Hall, Thu 13th - Sat 15th Sep, 19:30.
Thu & Fri adult tickets £8.50 / concessions £5.50.
Sat ticket including a three course meal, adult ticket £15 / concessions £12.
Box Office at Hailsham Jewellers, 36 High Street, Hailsham.
