Little Brother

Following the success enjoyed by Satin Doll, Mole Valley Scriptwriters are entering another new Tony Earnshaw play into various NDFA festivals in the 2014/15 season. Little Brother’s premiere was at Leatherhead Drama Festival in May and this was followed in October by an entry to the Woking Drama Festival where cast and director were all nominated for awards and where the play was judged the Best New Play.

ARTS ALIVE Performance

Little Brother was also staged as part of Mole Valley’s Arts Alive Festival on 3rd October 2014 in Dorking’s Green Room Theatre and played to an enthusiastic full house.

Little Brother will next be performed in the Barn Theatre, Oxted at the Southern Counties Drama Festival in February.

So what is Little Brother? –

Ian has a problem. His sisters think they can help him fix it. Can they? Or will their own issues and entrenched sibling rivalry get in the way? A thought provoking and humourous exploration of love, addiction, guilt and family relationships from an award winning writer and team.

Cast

Director Joy Ridley (who also directed Satin Doll) has reunited Satin Doll cast Nicky Kirkup and Rob Turner, this time as brother and sister, with older sister Anne played by Debbie Green (who starred opposite Nicky in the Ashtead Players 2011 production of Tony Earnshaw’s play, Stabat Mater). Described by Joy as the dream team, they are having as much fun with this one as with Satin Doll.
