Old Buckenham Players continue their theme of the last few years with a September night out consisting of two one-act comedies, music from acclaimed local band, Smallprint, and some free nibbles.

Two contrasting plays set the scene with Green Favours by Frank Vickery first up, concerning Tom and Val, two middle-aged people with a common passion - their allotments. Plain and practical Val is grateful for Tom's advice in sowing her allotment while he has his mind on more than the vegetable patch! Both Tom and Val feel the tug of attraction between them but Val is beset by guilt and the thought of Tom's glamorous wife. Will love bloom in the potting shed?

Out for the Count (or How Would You Like Your Stake?) by Martin Downing offers a totally different experience. Count Nolyard is newly arrived from Transylvania and is visiting a lunatic asylum in Whitby hungry for more than the housekeeper's fruit cup. Aided by the house-trained lunatic he attempts to seduce the young women of the house. However he is hounded by the Teutonic Professor with his bag of crosses and an hilarious struggle for the life and souls of the young girls ensues.

Local band Smallprint will provide the music.
