Soham Viva Production of Bazzar and Rummage up next week!

The award-winning Viva Theatre Company will perform Bazaar and Rummage, a heart-warming comedy by much loved writer Sue Townsend, creator of the Adrian Mole Diaries this February.
In Sue Townsend’s heartfelt comedy, three severely agoraphobic women have left their houses for the first time in years, and made it to a jumble sale. The sale has been organised by their social workers, the young trainee Fliss and the ex-agoraphobic volunteer Gwenda, though as the afternoon progresses, the distinction between them and the anxious people they are supposed to be looking after becomes less and less clear.
As Margaret, Bell-Bell and Katrina prepare to meet the public, armed with the suits of a deceased husband, old sequinned show dresses, bric-a- brac and a standard lamp, nerves and neuroses are running high, and a sensitive portrait of the suffering behind their phobia emerges.
The production will take place at The Brook, Brook Street Soham, which has been turned into a village hall in the 1980s for the production.
