THE Civic Players have announced their next play to be performed at the end of November.

Laying The Ghost by Simon Williams, is a comedy play about a heart attack, a ghost and three women in a retirement home.

Margot Buchanan, an ex-actress living in an ex-actor’s retirement home, is trying to forget it’s her seventieth birthday but all those around her are intent on reminding her. Even Freda, her eccentric and psychic best friend, won’t let her forget it.

Worse still, the tabloids are having a field day with her former husband, Sir Leo Buchanan, who she would also rather forget.

Unfortunately for Margot, she is about to have a very eventful day with a number of unexpected and unwelcome guests. First is Sadie Croft, an aspiring young actress who wants acting tips for playing a passionate Juliet.

They are interrupted by the arrival of Lady Judy Buchanan, Sir Leo’s current wife, also supposedly trying to mark the birthday. And then, Sir Leo arrives, firstly as himself and then as a ghost, adding to the mounting chaos.

Laying the Ghost will be performed at The Sawn Theatre in Yeovil. The play runs from November 27 until November 30 2019.
