Synopsis

Self-taught medium Phyllis has been trying to contact her dead husband for the past 40 years, without success. With the aid of her sister, Elizabeth, and 3 showroom dummies, Marjorie, Edward and George, she holds regular séances, with appropriate lighting and sound effects, but never manages to get through to the other side.

After a visit from a neighbour, Connie, who tells them of strange goings on down the local supermarket, and the discovery of hundreds of packets of rice in the sideboard drawer, there is a full-scale storm, and suddenly Phyllis’s gift seems to be working. But Phyllis is in for a shock when she discovers the truth behind her husband’s death, as Elizabeth reveals the part she played, and dummies Marjorie, Edward, and George prove they’re not quite so dumb after all…

    Theatrical comedy – Newquay’s Lane Theatre
    Marjorie, Edward & George – If you love nothing better than a night’s entertainment at the theatre, you’ll love Marjorie, Edward and George. The plot? Amateur Medium Phyllis has been trying to contact her deceased husband for the past four decades, but he’s having none of it, despite the help of her sister Elizabeth and three showroom dummies called Marjorie, Edward and George. It’s all very silly, and it’s great fun. The show runs from 13 – 26 July.
