A BOWL OF CHERRIES
A Bowl of Cherries is a musical revue that looks at life through a cycle of plays and songs. This is observed by two theatre ghosts from the last war; Penny Riddle and Albert Farthing, who are trapped between this world and the next.
The humorous, sexy, and thought provoking book is written by Carolyn Pertwee with music from Ivor Novello award winning David Martin; songwriter of 'Can't Smile Without You'. The plays and songs illustrate different aspects of life’s bitter sweet experiences and take us on a journey from the cradle to infinity.Albert is tired of being in limbo and wants to move on but is held back by Penny who is in denial, believing she is still alive and waiting for her big theatrical moment. Their story unfolds through the evening, weaving in and out of the events contained in A Bowl of Cherries, concluding with their own dramatic denouement.
This thoroughly entertaining revue is performed by eight versatile actors and musicians, and is devised and directed by Olivier Award nominated Andrew C Wadsworth.The songs and plays are instantly accessible as they chart life’s familiar dilemmas; A Bowl of Cherries has something for everyone!
