Kings Theatre, Newmarket
"While You’re Down There"A new play written and directed by Ian BedfordKenny is feeling hounded by over-zealous salesmen, charity collectors, his neighbours, parents and the world in general. Barely able to keep his life together, let alone a fading relationship with his wife Susan, he is as low as a man can go. While he is down there, Kenny makes a late night drunken decision that could potentially change his life forever. In the cold sober light of day, he, along with us, has to decide whether he has made the right choice or not.AtKing’s TheatreFitzroy St, NewmarketMonday 17th - Saturday 22nd September 2007Box office: 01638 663337
