Part of the Harold Jolliffe One Act Play Festival
For Henry Smith - actor, raconteur, sporting hero, leading socialite, business tycoon, secret agent, casanova and acting President of the United States - life was rarely dull.
For Alice Smith, housewife - life was rarely anything else.
Enter Michel - French waiter - tall, dark and available. Exactly what happened next, no-one's quite sure. Except that it involved a rotting melon, a deckchair and a bottle of neck-rub.
Fantasy blurs into reality. Secret passions explode. And two worlds which seem a million miles apart are suddenly on a collision course.
It could only happen to Henry & Alice. And only their pet goldfish, Orca, and you, will ever know the true story.
OTTC bring you a one-act version of a play entitled "The Secret Lives of Henry & Alice".
Like the full-length version, it's a virtuoso piece for two talented and versatile performers - one male, one female - who are called upon to play many different characters as they act out their fantasy worlds.
Please note the early start time each evening. The Festival Directors will allow no admittance while plays are in progress.
