A ONE ACT PLAY BY EDWARD STONELAODS has always been known for its spectacular summer musicals, with fabulous costumes, staging and superb vocal presentation. In the past few years, we have been exploring more of the ‘D’ in LAODS – the Drama. Phil Healing and Kindall Goble, who are both on our committee, are dedicated to mounting at least one one-act play every year. They have directed three so far; ‘The Goddess Of Walnuts’; ‘Way Back’ and ‘Everyman’, which was presented and extremely well received this past March. Phil and Kindall go to the Edinburgh Fringe festival every year. They usually try to see seven shows per day during their visit, searching for a suitable piece to use for our small space at The Green Room Club.
The three previous plays have been increasingly well received; mounting a one-act play also attracts new members, and makes the general public more aware and appreciative of what LAODS does.
