Audrey Lee has lived in Worthing for over fifty years, has brought up a family here and, off and on, has performed in local drama clubs. Her most memorable parts were Jo in Little Women at the Pier Pavilion with the West Sussex Players, and Heloise in Abelard and Heloise at the Gardner Centre with the County Players. She performed a programme of poems at the Cellar Arts Club a few years ago but has not done much recently as she is hoping to grow old gracefully. She can sometimes be seen at Blue Sky Music’s open mic events playing her autoharp and singing.
Over ten years ago now she took her own play, ‘Time and Chance’ to Edinburgh and performed it successfully as a one woman show at the Fringe.
For this Theatre Trail event she will be helped by a brief appearance of her grandson, Tom Dean.
The Last Waltz
Asked to clear up the loft when her aunt dies, Sarah Gurney discovers various relics of the past which explain why she has never been able to dance.This play owes nothing to present day problems of political strife or climate change, but grapples with universal personal trauma. It is somewhat Victorian in style, with an Aunt Nora riddled with outmoded prejudice, but cynics, please refer to real life. Aunt Noras and Sarah Gurneys have existed, and words have never meant more.
