The amateur theatre group will first tackle Harold Pinter’s The Lover, a look at the dynamics of a ten-year bourgeois marriage in the 1960s.  It is directed by Bob Havard, who terms the play a “comedy of mild menace” and has been keen to stage it since first reading it in 1968.

The second part of the double bill is written and directed by a long-standing member of the Players. The comical Better the Devil, by Alex Needham, sees angels and demons forced to cooperate to save themselves, the universe and Runcorn.

The Lover and Better the Devil will be performed at the Kelvin Studios from Tuesday, February 12, to Saturday, February 16, at 7.30pm. Tickets: £8 (Tuesday)/£10. Box Office: 0117 959 3636. Visit www.kelvinplayers.co.uk.
