History Making Kiltubrid Drama Players Stage “ Widows’ Paradise “ in Drumcong
History will be made in Kiltubrid Parish on Friday 19th , Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st May in Cardiff’s Lakeside Tavern , Drumcong when the newly formed Kiltubrid Drama Players stage “ Widows’ Paradise “ , a hilariously funny 3 – Act Comedy Play written by the great playwright of comedy , Sam Cree . Sam Cree has written several outstanding comedies . Many contend that “ Widows’ Paradise “ is the funniest one of them all . From the minute the curtain goes up until it falls , it is a laugh a minute . Why wouldn’t it be ! For the plot ensures there will be mayhem ! Five women set off for a weekend in a caravan on a Holiday Caravan Park . They want to get away from men . Their motto and resolve is , “ Men ! Never again ! “. The key fails to open the Caravan . They break down the door . Three men , later to be joined by a fourth , return from fishing to find their caravan occupied by the women . Nine people in one caravan for a night  – you will have to see result ! Sheer comedy ! Few can recall a drama group in Kiltubrid . So when Kiltubrid Drama Players go on stage in Cardiff’s Lakeside Tavern , Drumcong , they will be making history . Such are the outstanding performances by the cast, audiences will hardly believe that nine, of the cast of ten, will be making their debuts in a play . Enthusiastically , under the direction of Andrew Redican , the cast and stage crew have put many hours , days , weeks and months into rehearsing so  that the play is an outstanding success ; one to be recalled for years to come  ; one the parish will be proud of . The performances start at 8.00pm each night  . Note time . Doors open at 7.00pm . Come early and avoid disappointment .
