Wheathampstead Dramatic Society staging Losing Louis
EVENTS from the past and present come together in Losing Louis, the next production by Wheathampstead Dramatic Society which is being performed from next Thursday, May 17, until Saturday, May 19.
Some time in the 1950s, six-year old Tony inadvertently sees dad Louis canoodling with his mistress.
The skeletons that subsequently get shoved into the bedroom cupboard only come to light 50 years later in the present day as Tony and his younger brother Reggie come back to their childhood home, accompanied by their wives, for Louis’ funeral.
Secrets that refuse to remain buried erupt as the family is brought together. After years of separation, Louis’ funeral is the catalyst for the family members having to face things out in the bedroom – the place where all the confusion began – and the place where the truth about each of them is finally discovered.
Simon Mendes da Costa’s comedy, first performed in 2005, spans two generations of a family tree – a tree in need of much pruning.
