Come and see a double bill - two original plays written by local playwright - Carol Hayes as performed by Lindisfarne


Lyla Lockhart and her brother Luke arrive at Craggs Bottom Hospital in Lancashire, where their mother has died unexpectedly. Whilst in a room with their motherís body, they spend the time mocking the past and pondering the future. Wondering whether they will ever be released from the power of their motherís influence, some surprising items among her effects lead them to believe she wasnít the formidable character they had thought. This gives them courage, until they make a surprising discovery.....


Matchmaker Rosemary is hosting a speed-dating evening, supposedly not intending to participate until she sets her sights on Travis, the man with everything in his pocket but the kitchen sink. Find out what happens when Kayleigh, who pops in on her way to a night-club, livens up the evening with a drop of Vodka in the punch. A little loose-tongued, they all begin to reveal their secrets.....

Lindisfarne usually perform at the Palace Theatre but special one off premiere of each of these plays will take place each evening at the Railway Hotel. 2 for the price of 1.
plays feature Jacquee Storozynksi-Toll, Tracey Feriello, Ben Smerdon, Keith Chanter, Mervyn Howell, Linda Belt, Jack Byrne, Alison Seymour, Ellie Tomkins.

Tickets are available via Eventbrite (on line) and on sale at the door.
