Theatre: Sign of the Times......
Another theatre trip, actually there are quite a few more coming up.
Last night's was very funny.
Presented by Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds
By Tim Firth
From award-winning comedy writer Tim Firth (Calendar Girls, This Is My Family) and directed by Karen Simpson (Some Like It Hotter), this comedy drama explores the power of words and dreams in our changing world.
Frank is the Head of Installation at Forshaws, a commercial lettering factory, and an aspiring novelist. Teenager Alan is his reluctant trainee, more interested in his band and his iPod than the complexities of bracketing systems and electrical isolators.

‘excellent… splendidly funny and touching’ - Daily Telegraph
Just two actors from beginning to end and a very funny clever script. A great night out.
