DLS Players Present... Waiting for the Ferry

       The year is 1950. Three years previously, Sheffield’s Friendship Theatre faced closure but struggle on despite the sudden departure of its manager. Jack Callendar, ambitious local actor and playwright, has stepped into the director’s shoes, but his artistic aspirations are compromised by a weakness for the 'good life' of girlfriends, gambling and drinking and he despairs of ever getting his 'masterpiece' Waiting for the Ferry the critical recognition it deserves. It seems hopeless until, out of the blue, comes a call from a West End producer who wants to put it on. She is under pressure from East End crook Freddie Fittup to produce a play with him in a starring role and Waiting for the Ferry fits the bill. But Fittup, is being hounded by Scotland Yard who also manage to put the wind up the rest of the cast, most of whom have something to hide. Meanwhile, Waiting for the Ferry opens on the Strand. How will it go down? See for yourself!                                      

   7.30pm Start
