On 14th March, 2015, CM Vision Events presents one of the most interesting performance pieces you will have witnessed in some time, for a mature audience. The Reckless Sleepers Company will stage 'The Last Supper' play in the Village Hall.
Thirty nine dinner guests are invited to participate and on arrival will be issued with an inmate number and a slip of paper detailing the crimes and identity of someone who had once been executed for their crimes.
You will be taken your specific seats by the three players, before they begin a witty rapport with each other, going round the tables pouring the guests glasses of wine and conversing about the deaths of celebrities and historical figures ranging from Elvis to Einstein to Joan of Ark.
Thirteen of these seats are ...Last Suppers!
Their witty and fluid banter will outline the last moments of each persons life (your character), with their interpretations of the incident that led to the downfall and the last words they spoke at the event. This will be mixed seamlessly to an atmospheric and eclectic soundtrack.
Every few minutes a waitress carrying meals for one the condemned (you). Depending on the character allocated to you, the quality of the meals will vary from the excessive ("for his last meal he asked for a platter of fruit including a coconut, a mango, grapes, banana's, a plate of salad, two hamburgers, two glasses of fruit juice and a chocolate birthday cake,") to the disappointing ("he asked for no last meal.") Some diners will get far too much food and some will get none. But don't worry...your not really there to eat!
Maximum audience: 39 persons @ £10:00 per ticket from Kerry on 01270 522144

We have arrived at the season of harvest and chutney making, although I have to say the wildlife have had more of my plums than I have this year!

It may take a few years but eventually I will be able to make my absolute favourite scented chutney. Needless to...
