TV author’s drama heads to Sedgeford
Sedgeford Village Hall continues to be the only village hall in West Norfolk promoting professional live drama.
The Sedgeford Villager Hall committee has for the past five years promoted many dramatic, musical and dance events including comedies, historical dramas and murder mysteries.
Working closely with Norfolk-based Creative Arts East, which is backed by the Arts Council, Norfolk County Council and the Borough Council, Sedgeford has been able to consistently attract significant audiences and develop good relations with many of the theatre companies.
Whack-a-Mole, the next offering on Friday, November 15, promises to be an interesting and high quality drama from Jane Carter Woodrow, an eminent criminologist and a professional and experienced cast of players.
Likened to a female Breaking Bad set in the Fens, Whack-A-Mole is a comic-tragedy about three generations of women with disabilities, one of whom, Rachel, is the carer for the other two, whilst also working as a music teacher.
As Rachel struggles to secure a future for her daughter Florence and her mother Peony in today’s hostile environment, a surprise ‘windfall’ leaves the women fighting for their very existence…
Author Jane Carter-Woodrow has a PhD in Criminology from Cambridge University and a first degree in Modern History from London University.
She researches into women and crime and regularly appears in TV documentaries about serial killers and on news items.
Jane’s work for television includes episodes of The Bill (ITV), Coronation Street (ITV), In Suspicious Circumstances (ITV), Born To Kill (Channel 5), Crimes that Shook Britain (Crime and Investigation) and The Thieving Headmistress (BBC).
