Someone Who'll Watch over Me by Frank McGuinness
Have you heard the one about the Englishman, Irishman and the American?
Locked away together in a single cell in Lebanon for months on end with no idea why, three men, Adam, Michael and Edward try to to come to terms with their kidnapping.
A story of love, life and friendship that examines the strength of the human spirit, as the men share with each other their trials and tribulations as they strive to drive away the boredom, fear and insanity in an attempt to stay alive.
Alone in isolation they wait in the hope that someone watching over them will soon hand them a key to freedom.

The city of London is in the grip of fear. And from the centre of his web of evil, the legendary professor of crime is pulling all the strings. Not only that, but the King of Bohemia is being blackmailed by a former lover on the eve of his wedding. To the untrained eye, these two occurrences would seem unrelated. But the greatest detective of all time will face death itself to uncover a more sinister connection.Directed by Chris Finney Anyone interested should contact either the director, Chris Finney at firstname.lastname@example.org or our Membership Sec Angie Orme on email@example.com The two roles are:
Sherlock Holmes - The brilliant detective. Driven, unflinching and with a mind from which no detail escapes, no matter how small. A man who's intelligence seems ill-contained within his own being. He's also dismissive, prickly, a drug user and lacking in "people skills". Ideally, the actor who plays this role should be in his forties. But age is negotiable, as long as we don't skew too old.
Dr John Watson - A former military man, Watson is Holmes's best, and indeed, only friend. He is tough and reliable, and also a clever man in his own right. He is NOT Sherlock Holmes's sidekick. Companion is the better word. Watson is fiercely loyal, and a real gentleman. He is fascinated by Holmes's skills, but does not "fawn" over him. Again, and actor in his forties is ideal, but as with Holmes, this is negotiabl

Heald Green Theatre Club are performing Rattigan's In Praise of Love from 26-31 March. We have just lost one of the cast who is now unable to do the part owing to difficulties at work. We are trying to find a replacement. The part is Joey, the son of Sebastian and Lydia Crutwell. He is 20, an eager Liberal and would-be dramatist. He is emotionally estranged from his domineering father but finds the courage to stand up to him. It is a good part. Would you be able to ask or e-mail your members asking if anyone would be interested or knows of someone who might be? If so, would they get in touch with me on 07729 475934 or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org<mailto:email@example.com> and I can give them more information. The Telegraph review of last year's production in Northampton gives a good idea of what the play is about: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/theatre/theatre-reviews/8431787/In-Praise-of-Love-Royal-and-Derngate-Nothampton-review.html
