Avonside Players present The Final Test

Stratford Editorial 2nd Apr, 2015 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016   0

MARRIAGE, cricket and the dangerous lure of Bexhill-oh Sea provide food for thought in Stratford next week.

The town’s Avonside Players present Chris Paling’s new comedy The Final Test at the Methodist Church Centre in Old Town from April 16 to 18, at 7.30pm nightly.

Peter and Ruth have had a long and happy marriage. Or so Peter believes. They both have their own interests – he loves listening to the cricket on the radio, she likes to travel.

But all is not well as Peter discovers one afternoon when he’s dozing in his deckchair and listening to the final test from The Oval. His wife announces she has sold the house from under him and she’s moving to the coast with her lover.

When the new owners move in later that day they discover they have more than they bargained for – an elderly, cricket-loving squatter who refuses to move out of their garden.

Tickets, priced £8 (£6 concessions) are available in advance from Stratford ArtsHouse on 01789 207100, or on the door.
