In the absence of live performances the Marlborough Players have produced the third and final instalment of the ‘Suitable Girl’ audio play trilogy. This can be listened to on their website here.
Episode 3 is a 15 minute comedy set in the near future. The main characters Clive Martin and Charlotte Kemp are getting married. Clive asks Alicia, his artificial intelligent virtual assistant, to plan the wedding and to officiate. However, Clive and Charlotte’s mothers believe that wedding traditions should be observed and decide to organise the stag and hen parties. What could possibly go wrong?
Director Tony Michael said, “It doesn’t seem that we will be able to get back to live performances until later this year so these audio plays have, hopefully, filled the gap. Again we couldn’t meet to record the play so it was all done via Zoom and recorded on mobile phones.”
Episodes 1 and 2 are still available on the website.
If anyone would like to try their hand at writing a script for an audio play please contact the Marlborough Players through their website.
