Last Confessions of a Scallywag


The Upton Village Theatre Group recently enjoyed another of their regular outings, this time to the Mill at Sonning on Thursday 18th September. The Mill is a superb small theatre seating 215 people very comfortably. All seats in the amphitheatre have a perfect view of the stage

First they had an excellent two course buffet supper served by local sixth formers, who were most attentive. All food was home-made and really delicious, representing good value for money while the atmosphere in the beautiful old Mill was most convivial. Even the programmes were complimentary.

After the tasty supper they watched the highly acclaimed production by Dwina Murphy-Gibb (who was actually sitting in the audience that evening).

This was a hilarious comedy detailing the escapades of the loveable rogue Patrick Lynch who is now on his death bed. His final wishes are to make amends with his fellow villagers before he passes away. Problems follow when he doesn’t actually die.

The play only had a cast of six, but was brilliantly acted out with the audience in stitches on many occasions.

.Thanks, once again, to Malcolm for booking and organising another memorable evening.
