VERYAN PLAYERS NEXT PLAY IS Ladies In Lavender
Ladies in Lavender is a play in two acts by Shaun McKenna. It was adapted from Charles Dance’s screenplay for his 2004 film Ladies in Lavender, which was itself based on a short story by William J. Locke.
Set in Cornwall in the mid-1930s, the play tells of two ageing spinster sisters, Ursula and Janet Widdington. Their lives are turned upside down when they discover a young man washed ashore on the beach, close to death. They nurse him back to health and discover he is a talented Polish violinist, on his way to seek a career in the USA. Despite her sister’s concerns, Ursula falls in love with Andrea. It leads to a journey of discovery for her and a poignant ending.

Veryan Players are an amateur dramatic group who perform a range of productions ranging from serious to farce. The only thing we don't do is Pantomime, we leave that to our friends at St. Mawes and Tregony. We usually perform two plays a year. We are always looking for new acting members (Particularly 18 to 40) and anyone else who wants to be involved in local theatre.
