A DIFFICULT subject will be explored in a production at the Thomas Hardye School in Dorchester, which coincides with the sixth form's alcohol awareness week.

Rum in the Gravy Boat is to be performed on Wednesday, November 14 from 7pm.

This is a story about sexual awakenings, plastic microphones, an alcoholic mother and alopecia. Based on the actor’s own life and developed through Fluid Motion’s unique autobiographical style, this is a personal account into how theatre can make sense of the past.

It was shortlisted for Best New Play at the Brighton Fringe in 2018 and is definitely a show not to be missed. The show is suitable for those aged 14 years and over.

Rum in the Gravy Boat is being performed in association with Dorchester Arts.

The play is suitable for those aged 14 and over. Tickets cost £10. Contact Dorchester Arts.
