Portishead Players Present: My Ex

Starts: 19:30 On 13 October 2022 | Ends: 22:00 On 15 October 2022 [ Link ]

New house. New spouse. And an invitation to dinner next-door. What could possibly go wrong?
Come dine with 3 couples, some of whom apparently know each other very well indeed.
Imagine turning up to a house dinner party to discover your ex tucking into the hors d'oeuvres. In this hilarious play set in a suburban cul-de-sac, there is literally nowhere to hide. Join three couples on one night as they work their way through each course, where some of them may have bitten off more than they can chew.
Each guest knows there is something special about the evening, but as the conversations develop before and after dinner, they all end up getting to know more than they bargained for.
Performances Thursday 14th October and Saturday 16th October 2022 at the Somerset Hall, Portishead High Street. Evening shows 7.30pm, with a Saturday matinee at 2.00pm. Doors open 30 mins beforehand.
Early bird seating. Telephone 0333 666 3366 or book online via the website below. (A small charge is made for online and telephone bookings). Tickets, £12 adults/£8 children (under 18) may also be purchased from Nortech on Portishead High Street.
