After a few months’ gap it was a real pleasure to welcome Talking Scarlet back to the Devonshire Park.  This time with Terence Feely’s drama Who Killed Santa Claus – a play that they described themselves as an alternative festive “treat”.  That might be going a little too far as it wouldn’t be a Talking Scarlet production without murder somewhere in the plot – but this is somewhat different: a “who is going to do it” drama. In the end, do we know who did?Judging by the discussions afterwards, that is in dispute so there are certainly no spoilers here!

The theatre bar was again packed to welcome all our old friends amongst the Talking Scarlet cast.  It is always such a delight to chat to them and we are grateful for their giving us so much of their time. tricia-doing-the-welcome

While Talking Scarlet are busy with their own Pantomime “Beauty and the Beast” in Brighton, rumour has it that Patric is himself treading the boards as a dame in Cinderella at the New Theatre Royal in Lincoln!  Safe travelling Pat and we look forward to seeing you back in Eastbourne in 2017!
