What Brutes Men Are

Constance Cox
Produced and Directed by Andy Hutchings

Colwyn Abbey Players entered this production in the Colwyn Bay One Act Drama Play Festival presented by the Drama Association of Wales and performed the play on 24th March 2006 at Theatr Colwyn.  This gentle comedy was set in a 1960s hotel and features Carol who has just left her husband.  She meets Janet who, it transpires, was the husband's first wife.  To complicate matters further, Linda, the husband's mother, turns up as well.  The ensemble is completed by a
belligerent waitress, Mildred, who strongly disapproves of the ladies' drinking sherry at that time of the day.

We were delighted to come second in the festival (but would have preferred winning) and we received a warm reception from both the adjudicator, George Owen, and the audience.
