This year’s Hooky Players summer production Is There Any Body There? is a poignant family comedy with a twist.
Maud, played by Sheila Rider, has died, but she does not know it yet and her ghost prevails throughout the play.
The family, comprising Lisa, a loving, caring daughter (played by Amy Wilkowski) and Mona, the very opposite in character (played by Claire Wilkowski) have gathered to arrange the funeral.
Another major character is clairvoyant Madame Romanne (played by Jessica Hackland) and supporting roles include Derek, Mona’s long suffering husband (played by Steve Rooney) and the Reverend Damien, a way out vicar in crash helmet and leathers (played by Leah Dorman).
Although a comedy it is a poignant study of human nature at its best and worst. Wait for the twist at the end...
The players will take to the stage at Hook Norton’s Memorial Hall at 7.30pm on September 19 and 20.
Tickets (£7/£5 concessions) are available from 01608 730355 or Sheila.firstname.lastname@example.org
