Think of a subject that has occupied poets, playwrights and storytellers since Man – and Woman – first put pen to paper. We’re talking Love, of course – and with Valentine’s Day fast approaching, the Worthing Wordies are getting into romantic mood as they prepare for their next performance.
On Sunday February 15th they’ll be making a welcome return to Worthing’s Ardington Hotel on Steyne Gardens for an exciting programme of staged readings on Love, Lust, Desire, Romance, Frustration, Jealousy – and a whole host of emotions to entice the listener.
The Wordies have been performing at the Ardington for just over four years and have a devoted audience who love their quirky mix of funny, poignant or just plain outrageous items.
“Love and romance are universal topics, but we always try not to be too serious about anything we do,” says co-founder Wendy Greene. “It’s so important to take life with a pinch of salt, so if our audience wipes away a tear, we’d rather it was a tear of laughter!”
The line-up of performers is impressive. Russ Bravo, of Matt’s Comedy Club, published poets Wendy Greene and Audrey Lee, local playwright and actor Gill Medway, and drama teacher and actor Jane Ware are all regular Wordies. This time they’re welcoming the return of stand-up comedian and actor Simon Ware, who also happens to be Jane’s husband.
The performance starts at 6pm, to be followed by a fabulous dinner at the hotel’s Indigo restaurant. Call 01903 230451 for menu details, and to book your seat.
