6 October – Taste and Decency by Cliff Chapman

This week at ScriptTank Cliff Chapman things will get a bit Aykbourne and Stoppard with Taste and Decency.

Hugh and Cardamom are expecting a few people tonight, just for the post-funeral buffet alone, in honour of Hugh’s late mother, Violet. And there’s important business to sort out with Vi’s house, which would be far more pleasant over a relaxed, convivial house party atmosphere than in a barren lawyer’s room. Hugh and Cardy haven’t seen Hugh’s brother Nigel or his wife Lila for a while now. But an already awkward situation is made worse when the vicar and his wife turn up.

As emotions are buried under barbs traded. Until we find out what the vicar brought with him. And then all hell breaks loose…

The evening starts at 6:45 for a 7pm start at the Blue Posts pub, Rupert Street. The nearest tubes are Leicester Square and Piccadilly Circus.

It is also with a great deal of sadness, that we have to announce this will be the last reading at the Blue Posts – ScriptTank’s home for seven years. Like many venues the Soho area, the Blue Posts is being forced to close down by property developers to make way for expensive flats.

So please do come, as we bid farewell to the Blue Posts’ staff and its landlord Michael, on the Blue Posts’ final night, as it closes the following day.
