LADIES IN LAVENDER by Shaun McKenna

Elderly spinster sisters Ursula and Janet live in a small Cornish fishing village. In the Spring of 1936, they are stunned to find a young Polish man on their local beach who has been washed overboard during a storm. At first unable to communicate as they nurse him back to health, the two sisters’ lives are transformed by the presence of this handsome stranger, but their bond is disturbed by a holidaying Russian artist who hears his musical talent and vies for his attention.
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.
