A leading drama group is facing a dramatic situation of its own - as it is still lacking an actor to play a leading role in its summer production due to be staged in Windsor's historic Guildhall this November.

Windsor Theatre Guild is presenting Terence Rattigan's 1939 drama After the Dance, a powerful drama of ageing socialites drinking and partying their lives away in London as the shadow of the Second World War looms.

The part that need filling is that of a naive young man called Peter Scott-Fowler who becomes involved with this set after getting a job as secretary to an ageing and aimless writer called David, who is a distant relative.

His growing disillusionment following a personal betrayal is an important factor in the play, which is one of the lesser known works of Rattigan, who is most famous for writing the Deep Blue Sea, Separate Tables and The Winslow Boy.

It is being performed at the Guildhall, Windsor between November 19 and 23 with rehearsals being held every Tuesday and Thursday evenings at Braywood School in Oakley Green Road, Oakley Green until then.

Anyone interested in taking on a challenging part is invited to contact the director Adrian Tang on adrian_tang84@yahoo.co.uk
