Friday's Child - Austin Hawkins

  • Teignmouth Players The Ice Factory Teignmouth UK (map)

Friday’s Child is from the pen of local playwright Austin Hawkins. Austin’s one act plays have won a clutch of awards in recent years in theatre festivals for actors, directors and for his original scripts, including ‘Runner Up’ in a National play writing competition.

In this three act play ‘Friday’s Child‘, Alan and Mary Hurst are predictably going about their lives, he an insurance executive and magistrate, and Mary a ‘pillar of the community’, playing bridge, in the Townswomen’s Guild and doing charitable works.

Returning from the office one evening Alan has a chance encounter with a young sex worker, Sharon, and agrees to go back to her flat. Their meeting triggers a chain of unwelcome revelations as Sharon, Alan and Mary have their settled lives challenged and face a catalyst for change.
Hang on to your seats as the verbal sparks start to fly!
