Connections

Performances 14-16 May, Betchworth Memorial Hall

A varied programme of music and drama pieces, linked together with some connections that are obvious, and some more subtle. Classic numbers from the musicals are combined with modern songs, and the evening includes a short play Ransom by local writer Barry Lambert. Set in 1967, businessman Laurence Benson has been kidnapped by a gang planning to extort money from his family, but events take an unexpected turn...
