Out Of Focus

by Peter Gordon, directed by Martin Gore

18th – 22nd May 2021 Walkington Village Hall

Cleverly crafted and stunningly funny, Out of Focus is set in the annexe of a church hall, where a series of over-bookings has occurred. A wonderful mix of characters from the local community descends on the hall for a Brownie troupe meeting, a badminton game, table tennis, auditions for the vicar’s wife’s pantomime and an illustrated talk on steam locomotives, each claiming their rightful place. Confusion reigns until everyone finally unites for a common cause, the production of the pantomime.

Over the following weeks of rehearsals, alliances are formed and switched as the cast battle against the odds and the opening night nears. Events finally culminate backstage after the final performance at the cast party, when everyone receives their just deserts.
