Theatre in Focus: Alan Bennett’s Green Forms at the Dylan Thomas Centre
A comedy play focussing on an office before IT is to take place at Swansea’s Dylan Thomas Centre on Saturday 19 May at 1pm.
The main protagonists are Doris and Doreen, both of whom are office workers in the days before computers, email and team building were implemented into the working environment.
Doris and Doreen are determined that paperwork will not mean extra work for them and they turn work avoidance into an art-form. That is until a flood of paperwork forms threatens to overshadow their working lives.
Jo Furber, Literature Officer at the Dylan Thomas Centre said “Alan Bennett is noted as being a superb playwright.
“This is a great opportunity to see an extremely good play and it is sure to appeal to people who enjoy good comedy”.
The play will be performed by Fluellen Theatre and is based upon Alan Bennett’s Green Forms.
All Theatre-In-Focus presentations are script-in-hand, and preceded by a talk about the playwright.
All tickets are £5. Please contact the Dylan Thomas Centre on 01792 463980 or visit http://www.ticketsource.co.uk/
