What's on

Late on a Thursday afternoon the still bright sunshine streams through from the unseen shop front. The plastic strip curtain that hangs across the doorway separating the shop from the living room, moves in the gentle breeze from the open doors.

We are also aware of the sound coming from a television, which is at the moment unwatched in the empty, cluttered room. An electric kettle begins to boil before switching itself off.

Now we have set our scene it is time to let 'Between Two Summers' characters populate it.

Stage Directions from the Original Theatre Script:
The year 2019. The place: Southend-on-Sea.

It is almost the end of another summer season. The main action takes place in the rear living room and kitchen area situated behind a small family run seafront shop. Once long ago it had been simply a sweet shop /tobacconist. But now the tiny space, of which we can see only the rear, is crammed full of beach toys, cheap t-shirts, postcards and the like.
Though we are only able to see the area of the shop that leads to the door and three steps down into the living room, we are always aware of the busy seafront and all the sounds of the life that goes on there. The sounds change considerably as we move through the seasons. As the lights come up we hear the crowds and sounds from the small and large arcades that share the seafront with this small shop.

Winners and losers who choose…
or think they choose… to stay friends.
And then... months later... with a short car journey, or maybe a long one...
the Friendship takes its first steps to really begin.
The door bell rings... the front door opens….
and the unknown and the unexpected begin...

People find people. People make friends.
But where do these people find those people,
those strangers?
At a bus stop… school…. a cafe…
over the garden fence?
Or perhaps they are just waiting in a waiting room….
or maybe…. just maybe….
it’s on a game show in 1999?

Paul Prescott and restaurateur, Carlo Lange, founded La Bonne Crepe Café Theatre in 1979 in Maddox Street. W1, moving to larger premises in Battersea Park Road, London in 1984. Whilst Carlo was the owner and maitre d’ of the restaurant, Paul became the Artistic Director and writer in residence of the theatre, producing some 146 productions, a diverse mixture of drama, comedy and musicals, many of which transferred to other venues, including the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and the New End Theatre, Hampstead. At Battersea, Paul and Rod Anderson began their writing collaboration, which has, over the course of time, produced eleven musicals. The size of a postage stamp, even the tiny stage didn’t deter Paul from creating lavish Hollywood-style musicals, serious and poignant drama , thrillers, comedies and spoofs to entertain and delight his audiences between the main course and dessert. La Bonne Crepe established a repertory of actors who still refer to themselves as a ‘family’, and have remained in contact over the years. They are delighted to be working on Paul’s plays once again.
