Abandonment - FADS' Autumn show 30 Oct - 2 Nov

Post by des fisher »


Abandonment is a play about love, death, identity and evolution from the bestselling and highly acclaimed novelist Kate Atkinson.

Elizabeth, childless and recently separated, just wants to be alone. She's moved into a converted Victorian mansion, alive with history, character, woodworm and rot, where she is constantly invaded by her adoptive mother and sister, her lesbian best friend, an amorous photographer and a New Age builder, all determined to make their mark. But Elizabeth's arrival has also disturbed the ghosts of the house's past occupants: most specifically,
Agnes, an 1860s governess who was seduced by her employer, and who is now forced to revisit her long-forgotten past.

Rehearsals are well under way of course and it promises to be an interesting production. Not suitable for children because of the content and language.

You can see it at the Framlingham College Theatre (IP13 9EY) Wednesday 30th October to Saturday 2nd November at 7.30 pm each evening. Tickets available from the Framlingham stationery shop, online at https://www.fadsweb.co.uk/tickets or turn up at the theatre. Ticket prices the same as before - £10/£8 concessions.
