There is no love lost between the players in the Creakes' Drama Group's latest production, Alan Ayckbourn's Ten Times Table.

Fortunately the daggers-drawn, but bloodless confrontation on stage is a fiction thought up by the author.

There is no love lost between the players in the Creakes' Drama Group's latest production, Alan Ayckbourn's Ten Times Table.

Fortunately the daggers-drawn, but bloodless confrontation on stage is a fiction thought up by the author.

In reality the actors are an extremely friendly lot.

The award-winning group has chosen a play as their summer offering depicting what happens when a village committee decides to organise a pageant centred around a supposed local historical event, The Massacre of the Pendon Twelve.

The comedy is all set for a three night run from Thursday 15. to Saturday, May 17, at 7.30pm.

Ayckbourn, well know for his left-wing political views turns the comedy into a farcical political battle between right and left with a Marxist school teacher crossing swords with a Conservative committee faction which includes a retired army officer.

And so the pageant turns into a shambolic and physical confrontation between the two cliques both in committee and on the pageant field itself, and only sorted out by the intervention of the police.

The director is Ben Honniball with Philip Lines as production assistant.

Douglas Beebe is responsible for lighting and sound, John Green is the set designer, costumes are by Sarah Prince-White and Kathy Tagg is the prompter.

Tickets are available from 07818 696660. Admission is £7 (£3.50 for under 16s).
