Drinking with Angelika – May 2017

The Lynden Players were incredibly proud to present their Spring show for 2017, Drinking with Angelika, a new musical play, directed by Jeannie Willis and produced by Mags Durham. The show was an interesting departure from the norm of musicals and pantomimes for the society, and was performed from the 11-13th May 2017. Audiences loved the new direction the society had taken in staging this entirely unknown play, and all cast and crew had an absolutely amazing time bringing this beautiful, thought-provoking and poignant play to life.

The show follows a group of strangers who mysteriously find themselves brought together in a run-down bar in the middle of nowhere, on the coldest Christmas Eve since 1963. Questions soon begin to arise about the reasons why they’ve been brought together, and why they cannot simply leave and return to their everyday lives. A businessman, a lorry driver, an army general, a drifter and a dance coach…each harbouring a secret, a story, a confession.

As the shocking truths about their lives are revealed, and many secrets thought buried forever are brought to the surface, each person is brought to account for one day in their lives by the three mysterious residents of the forgotten bar.

The show’s cast was as follows:

Angelika – Kerri Dolan
Angelina – Katy Roberts
