Company rehearses Jez Butterworth comedy
The Company of Ten is currently putting the final touches to local writer Jez Butterworth’s Parlour Song.
The play is a whole world of paranoia, set in a housing estate not far from St Albans. While Joy finds diversion in a loveless affair, her husband, the demolitions expert Ned, wants to know why his possessions keep disappearing. And what’s the weird next-door neighbour Dale got to do with anything?
Parlour Song is written by the talent behind the international hit play Jerusalem. The Telegraph called it ‘creepy yet often blissfully funny’, and The Guardian admired the depiction of ‘mundane madness beneath the bland routine.’
It runs from 22 to 30 April, and tickets can be bought online here.
