Play Details:  Jack Up!  Tells the tale of two rival bowling clubs. It is the final match of the season and the winners take the league title. The problems start when the keenly-fought match is a draw and must be replayed, a week later. The home team Petts Wood suspect that the away team, West Wickham, will attempt to sabotage their green so set up an all-night vigil to keep watch. To keep the cold night air at bay they have the occasional swig of home-distilled gin made from grass-cuttings by the greensman. Cue the arrival of a police officer trying to find out what’s going on. Oh, yes, the officer is alcohol-intolerant. With a copper who now believes he/she is on a cruise in the Caribbean, thanks to regular toppings-up of the booze, they just have to keep things calm until the rematch has been played. But police officers have more senior police officers to answer to, and the next arrival is a senior police officer who just so happens to be the chairman of the West Wickham Club. In for a penny, in for a pound, Petts Wood now have two inebriated police officers to keep hidden, not to mention a very obvious police car in the road outside. The day of the replay grows ever closer…

This was a play that Chris had wanted to direct for ages, and she was over the moon when the committee gave her the go ahead. The cast, and Chris had already held a number of preliminary rehearsals at her home. We therefore took the decision to continue with the play in her memory. John Bayes had been working closely with Chris and so took over directing with Mary Feeney. Rehearsals seem to be progressing nicely and the cast are doing really well with their lines. The Box Office is open, and tickets at £7 each can be obtained from Valerie Law on 01689 833366. The performances are Monday 9th to Thursday 12th April inclusive, with curtain up at 8pm. Please try and come along to see it and support your society.  The adjudication date is Wednesday 11th April 2018.
