Local playwright, Freda Kelsall, adapts and directs the Little Theatre’s next offering, Summer Fancy. Based on a Thomas Hardy short story, it was first produced by the Bridge Theatre, at The Pomegranate Theatre, Chesterfield, in June 1992. Freda is delighted with this latest revival:
‘Rehearsals are going well, and there’s great chemistry between the protagonists, Oliver Bairstow as Charles Bradford Raye, Phoebe Farrington as Anna, Diannah Miller as Edith, and Ben Sweeny as her husband, Henry. Rosalinda O’Connor and Matt Parker are also excellent as Raye’s sister, Jane, and his friend, William Eagle, adding to the humour, and pathos of the play.’
