Playwright and actor Sharon Holland brings her production of Dirty Laundry for its debut performance in the Memorial Hall on Wednesday 12 and Thursday 13 September 2012.
Produced by Act on It Productions, based in Bakewell, the production tackles the topic of Breast Cancer and has been hailed as an endearing and sensitively handled piece which not only raised awareness but much needed funds for several charities.
The performance presents the story of a recovered breast cancer patient, Jean, as she realises life is too short. When Jean recovers from breast cancer she recognises it’s time to make every day matter, finding renewed optimism for a brighter and more fulfilling future. After finding support hard to come by she finds inspiration in a hidden artistic talent, and true friendship from an unconditional source.
Not everyone finds her newly acquired confidence infectious. Jean’s neighbours Peggy and Faith are compulsive obsessive housewives, whose lives appear to be as sparkling as the houses they live in. They both exist in a cosy, safe environment where ‘risk’ is a four letter word.
But is anyone’s life really so stain free? It will all come out in the wash!
With a cast of two, Sharon Holland and Brenda Chapel play all the various characters in this production, their transformation being very much part of the performance.
All proceeds from the production will go to the Helen’s Trust, a charity that supports people with incurable diseases, who have chosen to stay at home.
