Goudhurst’s own Drama Club, GADS, is performing Dinner by Moira Buffini, a British dramatist, which premiered at the National Theatre in October 2002.
‘The most disastrous dinner party since the Macbeths had the Thanes round to supper at their picturesque castle in Inverness’
Dinner will be presented in the round; the unusual dishes, surprising revelations, the arrival of an unexpected guest spewed up by the fog and, eventually, a death, all take place during the three courses of a very elegant dinner party.
This is a black comedy, which will have you laughing out loud one minute and jumping with shock the next. Goudhurst has outstanding acting talent, so come and be a voyeur, sit in the shrubbery, peer through the windows and watch the end of life as they know it…
Dinner will be performed from Wednesday to Saturday the 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th April in the Parish Hall at 8pm.
(The performance on Friday 7th will be adjudicated by the Kent Drama Association.)
Tickets: £10 available from Colin Willis 01580 211204 or by email
They are also available from Burgess Stores, Goudhurst Newsagents, and online at the new GADS website.

Patrons are advised that this play is perhaps not for those who are very easily offended
