The Wheathampstead Dramatic Society starts its 71st year with a play from the States which, to the best of members’ knowledge, has only been performed once before in the UK.

WDS presents Showtime at the First Baptist at The Memorial Hall in the village from Thursday, October 12 to Saturday, October 14.

Showtime at the First Baptist is set in a small town in Tennessee in 1970.

The Vietnam War is still raging but the ladies of the town are busy celebrating the 100th anniversary of their church.

What starts as a joyous occasion is shattered by a sudden tragedy that changes the lives of some of them forever.

As they work to overcome its consequences, there is surprisingly a great deal of laughter and affection along the way, as well conflict and sorrow.

The cast of five ladies are working hard under the direction of Sheila Scull, the society’s longest serving member.

Performances start at 8pm.

Tickets cost £10 from The Manor Pharmacy, Wheathampstead, or online at www.wheathampsteaddramaticsociety.co.uk

• Wheathampstead Dramatic Society is always looking for new members, both on stage and behind the scenes.

It’s a small, friendly company and anyone interested should contact membership secretary Len Skilton on 01727 861958.

Being ill sucks. No matter what’s got you down – the flu, a broken bone, diabetes, cancer – it’s a horrible place to be. Your body is weaker and less capable. The drugs you take mess with your mind and your moods and sometimes can make you feel even worse than when you started. Mental ill-health is no different. The brain is an organ, and like any organ, it doesn’t always function to the medical standard of “normal”. Mine certainly doesn’t.
