Burnham-On-Sea theatre group's comedy drama receives praise

Burnham-On-Sea's Princess Theatre Company performed an original comedy drama in front of an impressed audience on Friday (September 19th).

'Dragged Up' by Kim Cook was an original work about growing up in the North in a not-so-conventional family.

It tells the story of one family and how their lives changed.

The lead role of Harry Liversedge - a drag act - was played superbly by Sean Carr, with the other parts being played by Kim Cook, Ollie Hulme, Lewis Coleman, Simon Parry, Callum Edwards and Antony Evans.

"The Liversedges (the Dragged Up family) were the first in their family to own their own house. Mr L was determined not to lose the their home in the period of hardship and three-day working weeks of March 1974," said a spokeswoman.

"He therefore took a second job as a drag queen in a nightclub called The Amsterdam and this has repercussions to the family's life!"

The roles of the children featured in this production, were taken by adults.

The group's next shows are Out Of The Mist, a dramatised history of the RNLI, on Novenber 7th and Hold The Line by Sean Carr, Fiona Hulme and Rebecca Strickland on 13th December. Tickets are available from The Princess Theatre.
