Once again Backwoods Players is delighted to present a dessert theatre: guests will be treated to delicious sweets, tea and coffee and then swept away into J.M. Barrie's bittersweet play The Old Lady Shows Her Medals.
As part of the PMV's ongoing commemoration of World War 1, Backwoods honours both the veterans of that war and those on the home front. In this WW1 era play, Mrs. Dowey is entertaining three friends who boast proudly of their sons' prowess at the front.
Mrs. Dowey, who is childless but wants to share in their glory, pretends to have a son named Kenneth and when the curate arrives with a stray soldier named, coincidentally, Kenneth Dowey, the complications begin. The play will be presented at Brougham Hall.
