GROPING FOR WORDS. a comedy by Sue Townsend. September 2008

Joyce begins teaching an adult literacy class. Her pupils are faced with the frustration and embarrassment of learning to read and write in adulthood. Complete with nursery classroom and Wendy House, we follow four mismatched people thrust together in one pursuit which is both touching and laugh-out-loud funny. Written with wonderful humour and sharp wit in true Sue Townsend fashion, (Adrian Mole, The Queen & I).
This production was directed by Peter Martin, (Len Reynolds - Emmerdale, Joe - The Royle Family, Ernie - Brassed Off).
