DRAMATIC SOCIETY: There’s still time to see the Ringmer Dramatic Society Spring Production House Guest, today, Friday, and tomorrow, Saturday, at 7.45pm in the village hall. It’s a thriller by Francis Durbridge, directed by Johnnie Walker. The action is set in the lounge of the opulent Surrey home of married actors Robert and Stella Drury. Their cosy world is turned on its head when they are blackmailed into allowing a man, identifying himself as Major Crozier, to stay with them for a period of two days. The story has several twists which keep the audience in suspense until its final scene. Tickets £8 available online at www.ticketsource.co.uk /ringmerdramaticsociety or from The Pet Store in Ringmer, or contact RDSboxoffice@gmail.com.
