Snakes and Ladders

Presenter:

Description:
Revamped, rewritten and revived from Spotlight Theatre Company’s 2012 production.

Families are difficult. Retired sisters, Charlie and Emily, are having a quiet Sunday evening at home reading the latest ‘Aga saga’ and tussling with the cryptic crossword. Suddenly Charlie’s daughter Beth arrives. She’s left her husband and come home to Mum.

Her unexpected arrival and need for comfort triggers quite a bit of soul searching for the family. Beth’s need to dig around in the past, remembering happier times, also brings out some things that should, perhaps, have best been forgotten. A cosy night spent playing a seemingly innocent game of Snakes and Ladders, with a glass or two of wine, reveals a tension between the siblings. This deceptive game of morals is not as straight forward as ‘good climbs the ladders’ and ‘bad slips down the snakes’....and then Beth finds the photo album...

It’s true, when two share a secret it will, eventually, be found out. Charlie and Emily have to decide whether they should tell Beth - all the family secrets and lies that have been hidden for years.

Featuring the acting talents of Shannon Gray, Maxine Grubel and Joanna Webb
