Dirty money takes centre stage on Hayling

BIG INTERVIEW Benjamin Zephaniah: 'I'm always creative – I've never had writer's block and never been bored'

Have your say

Based on the 1936 film by J. B. Priestley, Hayling Island Amateur Dramatics Society (HIADS) is putting on a production of the Laburnum Grove.

The Radferns seem like an ordinary middle class family living in 1930’s suburbia.

But when George announces to his family that he is a money launderer, and they have been using dirty money for years, they don’t believe him.

Just when it looks like George was joking, an inspector from Scotland Yard arrives and things take a much more serious tone.

Directed by Simon Cundick, it is being performed at the Hayling Island Station Theatre.

The group’s next performance is Terry Pratchett’s Maskerade, being performed from May 19-26.

Tickets cost £7 from HIADS on (023) 9246 6363 or go to hayling-dramatics.hampshire.org.uk.
