Masque Players present: When We are Married - play by J.B Priestley
7.45pm
Kesgrave Community Centre, Twelve Acre Approach, Kesgrave, Ipswich, Kesgrave, Ipswich, IP5 1JF



Set in the early 1900's, A group of three couples, old friends and all married on the same day in the same chapel, gathers at the Helliwells' home to celebrate their silver anniversary. When they discover that they are not legally married, each couple initially reacts with proper Victorian horror what will the neighbours think? and all three couples find themselves re-evaluating their marriages; hovering closely over the proceedings is the Yorkshire Argus alcohol-soaked photographer, keen to record the evening's events for posterity, and a wickedly destructive housekeeper who is hoping to use the couples mortification to her own advantage.
