TWO PLUS ONE  (Kevin, Pantomania and The Team)

by David Baldwin

 

 

 

 

Fourteen young people performed all three short plays.

  

Pantomania took a new look at some traditional pantomime characters.  The narrator

felt that a new slant might breathe fresh life into the story lines. Ultimately he learns

that the old order has time honoured merit.


Kevin, performed for the second time, sees an interruption to a youth theatre rehearsal by

Eileen who breaks the news of the death of a one time member of the group.  Kevin was

something of an outcast and his friend Eileen now beleives that the group must accept

some of the responsibility for his loss.


The Team sees fourteen schoolchildren challenged to produce a short entertainment 

for a parents evening. Suggestions range from gymnastics to fashion shows but the

group eventually settle for accappella singing.  It all sounds so simple but it really is

far more difficult than they'd imagined.  Will they pull it off?
