Synopsis: Last Tango in Little Grimley where membership of the local amateur drama society has dwindled to four. Time for dramatic action. There's only one thing that sells tickets these days - sex. But how will the locals react to the promise of a sizzling sex comedy? Thus begins the chaotic and hilarious build up to an evening of extraordinary home grown drama. This fast-paced comedy of an Am-Dram in trouble is one of many hilarious plays written by David Tristram.
Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the theatre . . . along come Little Grimley Amateur Dramatic Society. In Lockdown in Little Grimley, Gordon calls an emergency meeting, complete with social distancing, to discuss his idea for their next production when restrictions ease - a touching love story set in a hospital, with all profits destined for the NHS. But based on their previous efforts, will the NHS actually end up worse off?
Both acts combined to make one gloriously funny play with four characters who seemingly have nothing more in common than being members of this woeful band. We have the bickering, disparaging comments, snide remarks and if you look hard, a sort of underlying affection which becomes even more apparent when the dramatic society is faced with a real drama.

Four talented actors required with great comic timing.  2 male and 2 female to play over 50’s
Each part has the same amount of dialogue, so 25% of the script.

Gordon runs the group and just about everything else! Writes the script, directs, takes leading role, designs the programme. Quick wit and great comic timing needed.

Margaret is a diva! Sees herself as somewhat above the rest of the society in terms of her thespian abilities and everything else. She demands to be the star.

Bernard is the set builder and prefers to play roles that are on stage as little as possible and preferably with no lines. He is a gruff, down-to-earth bloke, happy to call a spade a spade. Unhappily married and loves bananas!

Joyce is not the most gifted of intellectuals, which she puts down to having dyslexia in one eye. She loves singing. She is never quite up to speed. She finds scripts a bit of a challenge, not just the words, but the whole concept seems to tax her. Unlike Joan, her acting is wooden and laboured.
