LAKESIDE presents A WHO'S WHO OF FLAPLAND
Matinees - Saturday 23 & Weds 27 -2.30pm Previews Saturday 16 & Monday 18 Lakeside’s latest in-house production, A Who’s Who of Flapland follows the critical acclaim of Krapps Last Tape in 2003 and last year’s A Different Way Home and A Visit from Miss Prothero. Director Matt Aston returns to the helm for a re-working of this rarely performed piece by David Halliwell, who is probably best known for his play Little Malcolm and His Struggle Against the Eunuchs. The two actors charged with bringing Halliwell's bizarre script to life are Ian Reddington and David MacCreedy. Ian will be better known to television audiences as Tricky Dicky the underhand Market Inspector in Eastenders. Since leaving the soap, Ian has notched up an impressive resume of stage and television credits including Shameless. David MacCreedy, recently seen in The Walk for Granada Television and William Ivory's Faith for the BBC is another familiar face from television, He has made appearances in Dalziel and Pascoe, The Royal and Our Friends in the North. Set in a self-service café this bizarre black comedy begins with recollections of a swindle involving 2000 boxes of corned beef and a mystery con-artist, and develops into a bewildering series of false identities and improvised aliases until one of the two is caught out. A double-cross of the highest order, A Who's Who of Flapland will keep audiences guessing as to who's who, what's what, and why. Confused? You will be...
