Perils of family life

Ginny Davis is Double Booked
Ginny Davis is Double Booked

Tealby village hall opens its new season of entertainment with an amusing look at family life from the talented Ginny Davis.

Ruth Rich has hit the menopause; Colin Firth has disappeared from her dreams and eldest child, Laura (21) is away at university.

Time to settle down and join a Book Club? Well, that’s what she thought.

But as Ruth enters the “sandwich” years and worries over her mildly demented mother, her son Freddie’s (15) detention, and daughter Ellie’s (17) driving and drinking, she discovers it is not easy to please everyone - particularly not the cosmetically enhanced but demanding and vacuous Timmy’s Mum.

So, does a little white lie get her out of trouble?

Er, no - not when everyone around her is being sparing with the truth too .

Described as ‘Bridget Jones’ meets ‘Outnumbered’, ‘Double Booked’ will be at Tealby this Friday, November 8; start time 7.30pm.

Tickets for the show cost £9 in advance from Tealby Village Shop, next to the village hall, call 01673 838718 / 838571, or £10 on the door, under 18s £3.
