Sara and John present an evening of two contrasting plays – the theatrical staples of tragedy and comedy.
‘The Lady In The Van’ – an extract from Alan Bennett’s amusing and well-known play about his relationship with the redoubtable Miss Shepherd who parked her van on his driveway ‘temporarily’ and stayed there for 15 years!
‘Mirad, A Boy From Bosnia’ by Ad De Bont is an intensely moving story of one family’s suffering during the Bosnian War of the 1990s, and a boy’s search for his missing mother. Caught up in a conflict not of their making, we are reminded that ‘Refugees don’t exist. Only blown-away people exist, people blown by the wind all over the world.’
