Due to record numbers attending its performances of ‘The Steamie’ next month, Leslie Amateur Drama Club has announced an extra date at Rothes Halls.

The play, by Tony Roper with music by David Anderson, has proved very popular, delighting members of the club.

Diane White, of Leslie Amateur Drama Club, said: “We have been amazed by the public’s reaction to the play, with two of the original three performances almost selling out within a matter of weeks.

“The play will now run from Thursday, November 5 to Saturday, November 7 at 7.30pm, with a matinee at 2.30pm on the Saturday.”

The Steamie is set at Hogmanay in 1953, and deals with the everyday lives of four women trying to finish their washing before the new year bells chime. The play is well known to Scottish audiences, thanks to the television play starring Eileen McCallum and Dorothy Paul, first shown in 1988.

Leslie Amateur Drama Club is one of the oldest in Scotland, having been formed in 1904.
