This evening the Wedgewood Rooms hosted the first of a two night run of a theatrical double-bill: Mirrors by Roger Goldsmith and Damages by Stephen Thompson.
The first piece, Mirrors by local playwright Roger Goldsmith stars Katie Watson and Aaron Holdaway as Lisa and Mark respectively. Mark sees Lisa in a park eating her lunch. 'You remind me of someone I knew. You look like her. You act like her. You could be her...' The Wedgewood Rooms production will be the first staging of this dark and disturbing little piece.
It's followed by Damages, a sharp, slick, cynical and humorous piece about tabloid morality. It has the talents of Stuart Frank, Leigh Cunningham, Henry Oastler and Geoffrey Pye in the cast. 'Do we or don't we print this nude picture of a television celebrity? Who will profit? Who will suffer? Does it matter? ' Steve Thompson's award-winning play was first staged at the Bush theatre in 2004 and it is fantastic to see it getting a run in our city.
The run closes on the 23rd November, but there are still tickets available on the door to see these pieces on its final night.
Mirrors is directed by Steve Pitt and Damages is directed by Rebecca James. Tickets priced at £10.
