A comedy drama from an acclaimed writer and performer comes to the Sleaford area this week as part of a tour of Lincolnshire and beyond.

Fashionably Late by Ginna Davis will be staged at Leadenham Hall 2000, in Main Road, Leadenham, on Saturday, at 7.45pm (doors 6.45pm).

It is the latest in a series of plays by Ginna that centres on the Rich family, although works as a stand-alone piece.

In it, the family are planning a joint birthday for Dad’s 60th and Fred’s 18th when tragedy strikes. In their own unique style, they find a way to celebrate love, life, and all that matters.

Ginna and fellow performer James Goldsworthy will cover a total of 13 characters on the evening.

The Buxton Fringe Review hailed the play as ‘a very sweet and touching story’, which joins four and five star reviews Ginna has received for other work.

The show comes to Leadenham as a last stop on a tour that has included dates not just in Lincolnshire, but also Staffordshire, Worcestershire and Nottinghamshire.

Tickets, to include a light supper (soup and a sweet), are priced at £15 and available from Hilary Proctor on or 01400 272835.

Tickets, excliding supper, are available at £12.
