there will be a hard act to follow at Lea Village Hall when a brand-new comedy from a local theatre company comes to Lea Village Hall on Sunday 25th September.

Hambledon Productions will be performing for one night only A Hard Act To Follow, marking the company’s fifth tour since it began in 2007.

Penned by John Hewer, the play follows Benjamin Lecrosse - a matinee idol of the 1960s who secures himself the title role in a production of Hamlet.

Benjamin is overjoyed at the possibility of achieving his lifelong dream, but the theatre producers are not so sure and the recently graduated would-be actor Paul Upshott (playing Peasant Eight) is to be Lecrosse’s understudy.

This witty comedy of one-up-man-ship and saving face promises to be a riot of comic timing, characterisation and morality.

Tickets for the 7.30pm show on Sunday 25th September are priced £5 and can be bought by calling the box office on 01472 388019.
