Four Plays by Jean McConnell
directed by Gloria Poole


Director's Programme Note:   "Deckchairs" is a series of scenes observing life and is full of colourful characters whom we can recognise in ourselves if not in others.  Some scenes are humourous and some touching but all are with a twist-in-the-tail.  The action takes place on a seafront on a warm sunny day in summer.

This is the third time that I have directed scenes from this set of plays and each time has been a different experience as actors have brought their own experiences of life to the characters.  This time I have been very fortunate and have been able to act in one scene with the help of Charlotte as director.

This is my first direction for Lindsey Rural Players after moving recently to the area and I would like to thank the committee and members for the warm welcome I have been given.  I hope that you, the audience, gain as much pleasure from this evening's entertainment as I have done working with such a talented and hard working group of actors.  Gloria R Poole, RSA (dip)  Oct 2002
