A FUNDRAISING evening in aid of Hereford Breast Cancer Haven is being held at The Courtyard on Tuesday, April 25 with performances of two award-winning plays from this year’s Hereford County Drama Festival.

First to take to the stage is The Last Bread Pudding, a hilariously melodramatic bird's eye view of an AmDram committee meeting to decide what their next play should be. The meeting soon goes off agenda and secrets are revealed! Written by Nick Warburton, the play showcases the talent of two of the Hereford County Drama Festival’s individual award winners - Toby Burchell who won Best Actor for his portrayal of Chairman Ken, and Best Director Ben Mowbray.

The second half features Mother’s Day which stars former Royal Shakespeare Company actress Alex James in her return to the stage. Alex portrays one of two deeply repressed sisters whose plot to escape their domineering mother takes a tense and unexpectedly deadly twist. This macabre tour de force, sharply written by local playwright Frank Ryding, is a humorous black comedy, guaranteed to be as gripping as it is disturbing.

See The Last Bread Pudding and Mother's Day at The Courtyard on Tuesday, April 25 at 7.30pm. The event is sponsored by Rotherwood Healthcare. All proceeds from the evening will go to support Hereford Breast Cancer Haven.
