Wilmslow Guild Players


by Bettine Manktelow


February 1986

Act I - Party Games  1968 - evening

Act II - The Brighton Line 1973 - early evening

Act III - Squatters Rights 1978 - afternoon

The action of the play takes place in a hotel bedroom in Brighton over a period of ten years. Each act forms a separate story linked by the setting which is seen to deteriorate gradually as the hotel becomes first a boarding house and then an empty property for sale. The theme of the play is the changing sexual attitudes over a decade explored in a humorous manner.
