The play opens in darkness with a gunshot followed by a women's scream - then the lights come on and we see a post-dinner party group listening to a radio play. However, all is not as civilised as it seems. As the plot develops, relationships are laid bare and truths best left hidden are revealed.
The Guardian remarked that the play succeeds because it uses ‘a thriller format to explore the ever-pertinent question of how much truth we can take in our private lives’.
Some years ago we were lucky enough to obtain premises at the former fruit and vegetable warehouse on Brewery Lane. Through much hard work, grants and donations a theatre was formed which now seats 150 people and represents one of the most well equipped, professional-standard amateur theatres in the county. The theatre now stages IES productions as well as outside theatre and musical companies and also plays host to Ilminster Cinema Club, Ile Valley Flower Club and many other social clubs. The Theatre is also available for private hire for parties and corporate events.
