Keeping Our End Up

26 September 2022 - 01 October 2022

Sherborne Studio Theatre, Marston Rd, Sherborne

Keeping Our End Up is a bittersweet comedy, in the style of “Calendar Girls” or “Ladies in Lavender”. The action takes place in a dowdy sports club pavilion in which the very air is tinged with feelings of failure. The ladies bowls team is on a long losing streak and the five team members see themselves as remnants of glories long past.
With the season finale approaching and the likelihood of yet another drubbing by their dreaded all-conquering rivals, team captain Ronnie just isn’t very good, Ursula and Fiona have husband troubles, Joan outrageously stirs trouble, and Jan obsessively stirs tea. The women’s problems are instantly recognisable and together this fabulous five make up a microcosm of the world of women. It all brews up into an outline of the very fabric of village life and relationships, with moments of striking honesty, sad revelation and richly comic absurdity.
