TAKING place on a busy night in the Shakers cocktail bar, a comedy play which sees incidents unfold in a series of flashbacks through the eyes of four waitresses will be put on by an amateur dramatic group next month.

The Clavering Players will be performing Shakers Re-stirred – a play by John Godber and Jane Thornton which centres on the Shakers cocktail bar, the place to be seen and where the happy hours aren’t very happy at all.

Four long-suffering waitresses, Carol, Adele, Nicky and Mel, played by Netti Hayes, Becky Cornish, Charlotte Foster and Katie Castley, respectively, all have their personal reasons for suffering unsocial working hours and tolerating an array of unacceptable customer behaviour.

And their wickedly funny stories are revealed in a kind of flashback, offering a fascinating view of the reality that lurks behind the plastic palms and Pina Coladas in this ever-popular play.

It follows hot on the heels of other successful shows by the Clavering Players – including The Memory of Water and The Difficult Second Album.

The performance will take place at the Clavering Village Hall from November 2-4. There will be a show on the Friday at 8pm, another the following day at the same time and a final 5pm performance on the Sunday.

Tickets, £7, are available from the Tourist Information Centre by calling 01799 524002 or visiting saffrontickets.com.
