PVADS in the Harold Jolliffe One Act Play festival
Bouverie Hall, Pewsey 7.15pm
Friday 23rd and Saturday 24th March 2018
WHITE GOLD by Nettie Baskcomb Brown is a quirky, funny, dramatic play about a stone age family, a time travelling archaeologist, two strangers from another land, an aurochs and an evil destructive machine planning to destroy the World Heritage Site.
In this one act factual drama, an archaeologist, Tom, is digging at Blick Mead, a famous Mesolithic site in the Stonehenge landscape. He finds a rare perforated mace head and is surprised to be challenged by Miah, who claims to be the owner of this 8500 year old artefact. Miah welcomes him into her settlement in time for the biggest winter feasting event of the year – but there is a change of plans when two strangers arrive resulting in an exciting encounter with an aurochs and a modern day intrusion more terrifying than the wild animal attack.
THE ACCIDENT by Herb Hasler is a fast paced comedy with no set, no props and no real actors!!
