“Move Over Mrs. Markham”

Sep 04 2018. view 166

Silent Hands Productions presented, Ray Cooney and John Chapman’s “Move Over Mrs. Markham” at the Lionel Wendt Theatre on the 31st of August, and 1st and 2nd of September.



To cut a tangled storyline short, the play revolved around three pairs of hopeful lovers, a comme il faut dog enthusiast and a loudly decorated single bedroom flat. The actors did a wonderful job unveiling the intricacies and complications of the story through their stellar acting and  funny delivery of lines. We’d like to give Neidra Williams and Jehan Bastians a special mention  for their noteworthy acting and good direction. 



We caught up with some of the audience members for their comments on the play.
