Sisters

£10.00£20.00

The story is about a left wing problematic family who discover through a TV programme that the mother Sandra is the sister of the female Conservative prime minister.

This is not appreciated by Kevin the father and a member of the local labour club. Their two teenage children Bonny and Niles ( who have some serious discipline problems) are delighted to find they are related to aristocracy.

This is in the shape of Sir Sheldon Quentin-Jarvis, nicknamed “Sheldon the shit” who, to quote Niles, “Knocked up their gran twice”.

They are all brought together by Amanda the TV producer with hilarious results.

Four other very small parts are played by one person in various pathetic disguises complaining to the audience that it is all the fault of the crap script.

    Previous Performance Reviews:

    You hear the word SISTERS and to a certain maybe, ‘elderly’ age group the name Beverley Sisters springs to mind. They were an attractive sophisticated singing trio during the 1950/60’s. The latest interpretation of the word brought to my attention is the title of the latest comedy penned by Peterborough playwrite Clive Read.
    ‘Sisters ? ‘ performed by Peterborough Revellers, features a far from sophisticated, but down to earth lovable family from up north who receive ‘live changing news’ that the mother, superbly played by Vicky Hodge, has an unknown sister who is none other than the British Prime Minister, played with exactly the right amount of required aplomb by one of Revellers favourites Sue Read. In order to film the reunion the family are paid a surprise visit by local tv company with Sarah Goodman playing the straight laced reporter and teenager Dan Johnson her zany photographer who disguises his identity by performing three cameo roles with maturity beyond his years. Other Revellers favourites who all turn in excellent performances are Brian Havers as the father, Cydney Beagley and Sean Flynn as his wayward daughter and son. The cast is completed by Stephen Gravett who plays his first elderly role as the larger than life grandfather returning from his globe trotting philanderings to meet his estranged family for the first time and treat them to a taste as to what life is like on the other side of the street. ‘Sisters ?’ provides an excellent night out and a resounding success for Revellers in their first appearance at Peterborough’s Broadway Theatre.
    I look forward to seeing their next offering in June which is the latest of their themed variety shows ‘Spring has Sprung’.
