"Groping for Words" a comedy by Sue Townsend

Tues 20th to Sat 24th February 2018 in Grange Hall

Best selling author Sue Townsend's Groping for Words is a heart-warming comedy, full of charm and well-observed characterisation.

The play is set in a Victorian School, in Clapham, and tells the story of Joyce, an Adult Literacy teacher, Kevin, the caretaker of the school, and her two pupils: Thelma and George.  Each has their own secret and through the evening we discover how they come to terms and deal with their individual struggles. 

It's a play that says a lot: misconceptions of illiteracy, how we judge people, emphasis on first impressions, attitudes, class, homelessness and fragmented families.  All are put under the microscope as the group come together while groping for words. 

Wheelchair access and toilet facilities are available in Grange Hall which also has a hearing loop for the hard of hearing.

Performances will start promptly at 7.30 pm - the doors and the bar open at 7.00 pm.
