About

A playreading of The Awkward Squad by Bafta award-winning writer Karin Young read by creative members of Drama-on-the-Rise.

Description
What chance does Lorna have of a quiet weekend when both daughters and her granddaughter descend on her with their own problems?

She's spent three decades working for everyone else through the miners' strikes, local milk schemes and library closures and tomorrow she's to have a community centre named after her - but her granddaughter thinks her boob job is more important….
On top of that, a BAFTA, impending divorce, redundancy and a very upmarket caravanette force Lorna to reconsider both the past and the future – for everyone.
What's a woman to do? Accept everything that's thrown at her, or become a fully paid-up member of the 'awkward squad'?
The cast:
Pam - Hilary Tones
Sandy - Katherine Dow Blyton
Lorna - Rebecca Clay
Sarah - Freya Parks (TBC)
Directed by - Luke Adamson

A Q &A will follow the playreading.
