Alan Rimmer took the reigns of the 2008 mini festival, directing The Intruders, a one act comedy play by Peter Horsler
Bill is caught by Adrian while breaking into a suburban house. When Helen, Adrian's wife, appears, Bill calls in Linda, heavily pregnant, from the garden. Adrian shows them that the visible affluence is a façade for enormous debts. Bill urges Linda to be absolutely honest, whereupon she removes the cushion from her jumper. Later it appears Adrian and Helen are guilty of untruths, as they are not the actual house owners.
The adjudication for The Intruders was very good and albeit a mix of both positive and negative comments from the professional adjudicator, Alan was urged to continue directing which he did in 2010 with the pantomime Cinderella. Alan was lucky to have experienced members in the cast who were able to support and help him as well as the less experienced last members. The evening also included a quiz much to the delight of the members in attendance. It was a fun evening enjoyed by all. Alan has since moved away from the local area but is still acting and directing with a new group and we wish him all the very best for the future.
