The Wesley Players had one of their final dress rehearsals for their production of ‘Ding Dong’ last night
Ding Dong is a comedy written by Marc Camoletti, the same person who wrote ‘Boeing Boeing’, that recently appeared at The Queen’s Theatre.
Bernard has discovered that his wife, Jacqueline, is having an affair with Robert. Being a reasonable man, Bernard gives Robert two options to compensate for the affair: either he will sleep with Robert’s wife, Juliette, in order to keep things even, or he will have him killed.
Needless to say, Robert would prefer not to die and agrees to an evening meal at Bernard and Jacqueline’s home with both couples present – much to the frustration of their overworked and underpaid maid, Marie-Louise. What will Jacqueline’s reaction be to her lover arriving for dinner with his wife? Will Bernard achieve revenge and sleep with Juliette? Indeed, is it really Juliette who accompanies Robert to dinner? As the evening progresses the situation becomes more hilarious and confusing.
Ding Dong is being preformed by The Wesley Players at Upminster Methodist Church on the 14th, 15th & 16th May each night at 8pm
We have seen a lot of good performances by The Wesley Players, including ‘The Sign of The Crippled Harlequin’ and ‘Sleeping Beauty’ and we are certainly looking forward to their latest performance this week
