                         The cast of PICTURES,  KEVIN  &   BILLY

For three evenings at Goodrich Village Hall, eighteen members of the youth company entertained very appreciative audiences with three plays specially written for this occasion. 

"Pictures" shows the reaction of a group of school children to two very different styles of painting whils visiting a local gallery.  Whilst an abstract work is initially scorned by the group it ultimately provokes more imaginative interpretation than the photorealistic piece which is greeted with 'yes it's clever but is it art?'.

"Kevin" was the sole friend of Eileen.  Both were 'misfits' in the school drama group.  Kevin moved away and is now dead.  It's his friend Eileen who interupts a performance to tell the drama tutor and fellow actors just what responsibility  they must bear for the loss of a 'difficult' but talented young man.

"Billy" is set in Americas mid west in the late nineteenth century. Billy has been on the run from the law and the brother of a man he killed in a Dodge City brawl.  Laying low in a quiet old goldrush town, Billy meets and falls in love with one  time dancer Sue.  They plan to get married in the local chapel but the arrival of gunslinger Frank Miller interrupts their plans.  Miller is looking to avenge his brother's death.  Will Billy and Sue stand together at that altar?
