For followers of camp and comedy there promises to be one of the campest workshops in Eastbourne for some time for older gay people.
Locals will be given a chance to do their best Larry Grayson impersonation, when a London Theatre Producer will launch his new script on Eastbourne Rainbow, the Eastbourne group for older gay people.
The project to engage older gay people in theatre, has been launched by the Royal Hippodrome Theatre (RHT) working with Cutting the Strings Theatre Company.
The Workshop will take place on Wednesday February 24 at 2pm at the Venton Centre on Junction Road in Eastbourne and will involve group members playing out the role of comedian and Generation Game host, Larry Grayson.
Members will be using the newly written script from the play Three Days and Three Minutes with Larry which will be playing at the RHT during Easter week.
Darren Weir, Community Engagement Director of the RHT, says: “We are working with Age Concern and the Rainbow group to devise new ways to help older people keep active and creative. Supported by the Arts Council the project will use the group to help shape and develop the new script for the show, which looks at the last performance by Larry at the Royal Variety show in 1994.”
