‘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.
