‘Two for One’

An evening of two One Act plays:

 

‘The Chip Van Plays Dixie’ by Robert Iles

Two strangers meet on a bench outside a cemetery. Gary, after his weekly visit to tend his wife’s grave, sits at the cemetery gates, enjoying the view of the town he loves. Babs, who is about to emigrate to Australia, brings a bunch of flowers for the grave of her husband, for the first and last time. And along comes the Chip van….

 

‘Ivy’ by James Hogan

Ivy is a barmaid who has been forced to retire – replaced by the ‘Teenage Tart’. She has worked and lived in the same hotel for 40 years, waiting for her love, Nobby, to return. It is her last afternoon in employment. In the staff room she reflects on her life, her days in the WAAFS on the Isle of Man with her best friend, Inky, and offers her advice to those staying behind. No one is listening.




Clash Vooar and Loose Crew – Free Gig

Please join us for a night of Blues, Jazz and Folk in the Atholl Room bar of the Centenary centre. FREE admission but a quality raffle and donations to the Friends of the Centenary Centre are always welcome!




Harry Manx

The legendary Harry Manx makes a welcome return to Peel for the last in the series of events booked by our dear friend Jonathan “Jonno” Gollow, before his very sudden and sad passing earlier this year.

Harry Manx is a Canadian musician who blends blues, folk music, and Hindustani classical music. He describes his music as being a “blend Indian folk melodies with slide guitar blues, add a sprinkle of gospel and some compelling grooves and you’ll get Manx’s unique “mysticssippi” flavour.”

This one is for you Jonno.

Tickets are available now for this show online, or at our usual outlets.

Set in the stunning New Zealand bush, a psychotic and rather uncaring social worker leaves an unwanted delinquent on a remote farm, in the care of the loving Aunt Bella, the cantankerous Uncle Hec, and Tupac the dog. When social services threaten to take him back into care, a manhunt and hilarity ensues.
