Vices and Virtues: A Variety Performance – 10-12 May 2018
The Lynden Players are very excited to announce that their Spring 2018 show will be a variety performance – but with a difference!
Vices and Virtues: A Variety Performance will be a variety show, but all the songs, scenes, and sketches will be linked to one of the seven vices and/or seven virtues, with a narrative about the opposing sides & the struggle between them (Good vs. Evil) linking each performance together. Our resident writer, Kay Andrews-Kuhn (author of our recent and upcoming pantomimes, Hood and CAMP) will be scripting this narrative, which is hugely exciting! The show’s overall direction will be overseen by Katy Roberts, who directed our 2015 performance of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
The vices/virtues that will potentially feature in the show are: Gluttony vs. Temperance, Lust vs. Chastity, Greed vs. Charity, Pride vs. Humility, Sorrow vs. Kindness, Wrath vs. Patience, Sloth vs. Diligence.
Thank you to everyone who submitted ideas for consideration – the deadline for submissions has now passed, and the production team are in the process of putting the show set list together – so watch this space for more info in the coming weeks!
