Ilmington’s Triumphant Jubilee Play

on .

The Ilmington Jubilee play Magic Moments at the Village Hall  was the triumphant fulfilment of twelve month’s planning, research, writing, dramatic exploration, and rehearsals culminating in a joyous celebration commemorating the first 10 years of the reign of Queen Elizabeth II. The director of the project Colin Edwards conceived the idea with the aim of involving Ilmington residents in the staging of their memories, and dramatically depicting life as lived in the 1950s.

Mark Currey’s play, centres on the everyday life of a family and in particular the daughter, Elsie, who meets her future husband at the weekly Saturday night dance in the village hall.
