The Phoenix Players presents

"The Reunion"

A comedy by Peter Gordon, Directed by Daphne Breakspear.

Wednesday 28th Sept to Saturday 1st October 2016

At the Arts Centre, Devizes Road, Swindon at 7.30pm.

"It's good to meet up with old friends"....or perhaps not!

Nigel arranges a reunion in the back room of a pub, optimistic of a good turnout. Whilst the numbers disappoint him, he soon has his hands full when a motley middle-aged threesome turn up, bringing with them assorted wives, girlfriends, prejudices and resentments that have simmered for the last twenty five years.

As the evening unfolds, the men are forced to reassess their old alliances and reflect on their lives, as the women are increasingly struck by the futility of the whole exercise. Comedy and confusion combine in this hilarious but poignant story of 'small people' in a 'big world'.
