New Deer set for two exciting plays

SPITFIRE Solo by Nicolas Collett Productions and Blown Seed by Fleeman Productions will both be staged at New Deer over the next two months.

Spitfire Solo will be performed on Tuesday, April 23, at 7.30pm.

It’s June of the new Millennium. For 80-year-old Peter Walker, ex-Battle of Britain pilot, an unexpected new challenge is about to begin.

From the confort of the Silver Birches Retirement Home, he must once again find the resilience, determination and strength to do what must be done.

As he re-lives past glories, losses, wartime experiences, family memories and the heady days of blue skies and battles, he searches for the answer to the biggest question so far!

Personal, charming, funny and inventive, Spitfire Solo is one man’s battle for survival, the second time around.

Blending theatre, music and film in this multi-layered and textured production, Nicolas Collett plays a multitude of characters and recreates the Battle of Britain onstage.

Fleeman Productions meanwhile is continuing the celebration of the centenary of David Toulmin’s birth by presenting Charles Barron’s adaptation of Toulmin’s only novel Blown Seed.

Controversial when it was published it brings a tale of laughter, loss and lust in early 20th century Buchan.

Tickets for both shows are priced £10 and £8 (concession) and are available from Chemist and Food for Thought, New Deer by calling (01771) 644217/644366 or online at www.neatshows.org.uk
