AN innovative new play which was performed in three locations during Coastival can be seen at the library this week.

The peripatetic production was presented by Beach Hut Theatre in three parts over two days.

Act 1 of Alison Watt’s latest play, a comedy called Love, When It’s Brass, was performed at the Stephen Joseph Theatre.

Act 2 was performed in the Palm Court Hotel’s covered carpark later the same day, followed by Act 3 in the town-hall gardens the next day.

“We had a great weekend with lots of people coming to all three acts, despite the fairly nasty weather conditions,” says Ali’s husband John Pattison.

Love, When It’s Brass is a light-hearted, laugh-out-loud look at love, money and the trials of running a wedding reception.

It will be presented in the more conventional theatrical setting of the library from today to Saturday, at 7.30pm.

The company has been presenting its unique brand of home-grown theatre in the library’s first-floor concert room since 2007.

The idea behind the company is to generate and produce original, popular writing for local audiences. This is their fifth new production featuring locally trained actors.
