Market comes to Yeadon stage for Darling Buds of May
11:40am Saturday 14th September 2013 in Local news
Homemade jams and pickles will be on sale to theater-goers when a market is staged for a production of The Darling Buds of May.
Each performance at Yeadon Town Hall in October will feature ‘market day’, at the home of the Larkin family, somewhere in Kent in 1957, set up at the entrance to the auditorium.
“This fits beautifully with the story, the setting and the time,” said director Bruce Sturrock, who came up with the idea. “Of course, in 1957 almost everyone made their own jams and pickles, so it should evoke the era well.
“But, of course, this posed the question of where the home produce was going to come from but the society’s ladies’ committee came swiftly to the rescue. Renowned for their sumptuous suppers, the ten-strong group had no hesitation in offering to make the jams.”
Society president Sheila Stott said: “It is a heart-warming, gentle comedy and we hope our efforts will really set the scene”.
It will take place at Yeadon Town Hall from Wednesday, October 9, to Saturday, October 12.
Tickets are available on (0113) 250 5587 or (0113) 250 3032.
The play will raise money for Marie Curie Cancer Care.
