Comedy drama charts community’s £1m dilemma
WITNEY meets the Vicar of Dibley in the town’s dramatic society’s latest production.
The Goodbridge Million tells the story of a village facing the question – what would you do if you won £1m?
The play, by Sean Dooley and directed by Teresa Heys, tells of the characters’ dilemma when they get £1m from a mysterious American benefactor. The only condition of the gift is that it is “spent according to the villagers’ wishes”. A meeting is called and everyone invited to put forward their ideas.
This huge sum of money could pay for a new sports hall, maybe an extension to the village nursery, perhaps an art gallery.
Angela Devaal, 46, of Tower Hill, plays Agnes Grey, who she describes as the “nuttiest of them all”.
She said: “If you think of The Vicar of Dibley and the eclectic mix of characters in that, we’re crazier than them all.”
The play is being performed tomorrow, Friday and on Saturday at the High Street Methodist Church, at 7.30pm.
Tickets, priced £8, are on sale at Rapture music shop in the Woolgate Centre and at the Methodist Church coffeeshop, or call Teresa Heys on 07788 511828 or Margaret Hamm on 07853 262107.
Proceeds from programme sales will be donated to the Maggies Centres cancer charity.
