Beechworth Theatre Company presents ‘Trial & Error’ by Kenneth Horne
Beechworth Theatre Company is excited to present ‘Trial & Error’, a comedy by Kenneth Horne. The play will be performed at the Beechworth Memorial Hall on May 14th, 15th, and 16th (matinee).
This classic 1950’s British farce follows the trials of newly married Andrea and Claud in the first few days of their honeymoon in a sunny, beachside home run with military efficiency by Mrs O’Connor the housekeeper. Within hours of their arrival (and, importantly, before their impending wedding night), poor, long-suffering Claud finds that things are not quite what they seem with his beautiful but mysterious bride. Both Claud and the audience quickly realise that the widowed Andrea may have some rather dastardly secrets along with her equally dastardly first husband Dudley. The first act ends in riotous chaos as both Claud and Dudley are dispatched from the house (much to the consternation of Mrs O’Connor) and as we move through Acts 2 and 3, we are introduced to a range of quirky characters, including Aunt Gertrude, the wannabe reporter Miss Briggs and her photographer offsider Ron. Will Andrea and Claud ever get their wedding night? Will Dudley get what’s coming to him? Will Miss Briggs get a job at The Sun? Will Ron get his photo opportunity and will Mrs O’Connor ever get her house in order?
