Tickets selling fast for Ifield Barn Theatre Society’s sequel

Ifield Barn Theatre Society is presenting a sequel to the NODA award-winning Miniskirts & Revelations next month.

Flowery Shirts & Strange Relations is set to run for five performances from March 4 to 7 at the Ifield Barn Arts Centre.

The show is written by Margaret Graham and directed by Janine Robins.

Theatre lovers are urged to book their places soon as tickets are selling out fast.

In Flowery Shirts & Strange Relations baby boomer Penny looks through her teenage diaries and back to the autumn of 1968. The audience gets to watch with her as the three generations at Greenfields’ Guesthouse – Grandma, widowed mother Chris, art-student Penny and biker brother Mick – approach the hippy era.

Viewers also get to experience the music and fashions of the time.

Is young Penny courting disaster as she throws herself into student unrest and peace protests – and into the arms of her Afghan-coat-wearing idol Derek?

What is disapproving mum Chris not owning up to in her own private life?

Is Grandma being haunted or is she losing her marbles?

Is Ivan ever going to find love? And most importantly: exactly who is the unsettling Mr Carr and why has he come to stay at the Greenfield Family Guesthouse?

Miniskirts & Revelations ran from October 2 to 5 in 2013 and won a 2014 Award For Excellence from the National Operatic & Dramatic Association.

Playwright Margaret Graham said: “As the writer you can imagine this is very gratifying, although a little daunting as we have a lot to live up to.”

The new show starts at 8pm on March 4, 5, 6 and 7 with an extra performance on March 7 at 3pm.

Tickets cost £9 (£7 for members and children). Call the box office on 01293 522763 (24-hour answering machine) or visit the theatre at Ifield Street, Ifield, Crawley, from 12pm to 1pm on Sundays.
