The set is up and there are just a few days to go to the Fairlight Players production of The Edge of Darkness.
The story is about a young lady called Emma who is returned to her loving parents after a mysterious absence of three years. She can remember absolutely nothing of this missing time. At first all seems well but all is not as it seems. Why has Emma an absolute dread of knives and why is she so obsessed by the family portrait? Also what are the Russian phrases that she keeps saying? All this is mixed with Hardy the handy man who just turns up, and a mysterious visitor. All is revealed as the plot twists and turns as the story unfolds with an exciting climax.
The Edge of Darkness is written by Brian Clemens (who wrote for TV for The Avengers and The Professionals among other things). It is a costume thriller set in Victorian times. The play is on at Fairlight Village Hall from Thursday April 19 to Saturday April 21 inclusive, 7:30pm nightly plus a 2:30pm Saturday matinee.There is a bar at every evening performance. Tickets £6 are available from Fairlight Post Office or by calling 01424 814178.
