New Deer Community Association has announced it is delighted to welcome back Fleeman Theatre Company its their latest Doric Play.

‘Far Seagulls Dare’ will be staged at the village on Tuesday, May 20, at 7.30pm in the public hall.

This play, which was written by Derek Laing, won the Charles Barron Prize for Doric Drama which was offered to commemorate the life and work of Charles after his death last April.

The suspense builds in an Aberdeen top floor tenement flat occupied by the Raeburn family, Jean, bob and son Ginger.

The rent officer will soon be calling to fix a new rent.

Normally the place is leaking like a sieve but it’s the hot summer of 1976 and it is as dry as a bone.

Urged on by Ma Raeburn, the trio decide to introduce some damp and tinker with the slates on the roof.

Ginger finds himself 100 feet above ground likening his exploits to Burton and Eastwood in ‘Where Eagles Dare’ only in this case his attackers have beaks!

Meantime unexpected visitors arrive at the flat and are kept in the dark about Ginger’s exact whereabouts.

Commenting on the return of Fleeman Theatre Company with this latest production, volunteer promoter, Sue Robertson, said: “The Fleeman Company has been coming to New Deer for nine years and is always popular.

“This play has the company’s trademark Doric humour and will be a great tribute to Charles Barron.

“Directed by Liz Loggie and featuring all the regular members of Fleeman, this will be a great evening’s entertainment for all.”
