A Different Way to Die - performed May 2016

By Lynn Brittney

Performed with the kind permission of Playstage Senior

Director - Jan Watkins

This is my first time in the directors chair for the Manifest Theatre group, although I have directed various plays and musicals for different companies during the time I lived in London.

I am pleased to put the directors hat on once again for this one act play. It has always been dear to my heart since performing in it back in 1996 when I played the part of Anna. A Different Way to Die is a very thought provoking play and allows the actors the chance to show their stage craft and acting skills in a dramatic performance.

I hope you will enjoy our production and have a great evening of entertainment watching the two very different but great one act plays.
