Cake

Written by Jan Watts. Directed By Alison Simpson

1st, 2nd & 3rd of September 2011

Story

Our heroine, Sweetie, having eaten too many of her mother’s cakes ends up in Cakedom, peopled, astonishingly by a TV Crew , a Retired General, and many other assorted ‘Fancy Pieces’.
The Villain, Death By Chocolate, conducts a reign of fear with help from his evil henchman Dr Seedcake - This is the story of how Sweetie saves the day, escapes a life of sickly sweetness and returns to the ‘real world’.
This play is our most ambitious young people’s production to date: the first taste of a speaking role for some members of the cast and for others, of standing on a public stage.
The cast and crew of Cake includes 25 nice fresh patisseries (aged between the ages of 8 and 18 years) from Portsoy, Sandend, Fordyce, Macduff, Banff and King Edward, as well as one or two more mature cakes, some of whom are well past their sell-by date.
