Midland Players toast 40th anniversary with Sue Townsend double bill

A theatre company will mark the launch of its 40th anniversary year with a double bill of Sue Townsend plays.

Midland Players will present Groping for Words and Womberang at the University Drama Studio, Glossop Road, Sheffield.

Join Joyce as she helps a ramshackle group overcome illiteracy, and Rita as she brings a hospital waiting room to joyous anarchy. Equal measures of humour and poignancy explore poverty, politics, feminism, love, life and death.

Performances from March 25 to 28 at 7.30pm. Tickets £8, call 07928 276 383.
