Octopus Drama Group presents 'Birthday Club'

Christ the King Church Hall, Thornbury

Octopus Drama Group’s forthcoming production is the comedy play ‘Birthday Club’, which will be performed in Christ the King Hall, 12 to 15 June 2024 at 7.30pm.

Written by Phil Olsen and directed by Abi McManus, ‘Birthday Club’ promises to be a real hoot!

Five women, each with their own story, get together to celebrate their birthdays every year. They celebrate, commiserate and support each other as they hilariously attempt to negotiate their way through their own respective issues with relationships, work, divorce, childbirth and kids and whatever else life throws at them.

Cheryl, Kathy, Emily, and Abbie started Birthday Club five years ago primarily as a support group to help their friend Jennifer, who had been diagnosed with cancer. With Jennifer recently passing away, they find themselves with an opening for a new member. However, it’s not easy to join Birthday Club as it is a very exclusive group. A potential new member, Sarah, is finally introduced to the group, but first she must make it through the strict “interview” process and agree to abide by the eight rules of Birthday Club before being considered an official member.

Gradually, one by one, each group member begins to reveal their own ‘personal demons’ as the group endeavour to support and advise each other in a variety of questionable and unorthodox ways. However, when it is accidentally revealed that one of them has been ‘liaising’ with another’s husband, the vodka finally hits the fan.

The question is, will Birthday Club survive or will Rule Number Five end it forever?

This hilarious, poignant and heartwarming play touches on life struggles and situations with which anyone can identify…a real laugh therapy! However, ‘Birthday Club’ is more than a play, it’s a party! And everyone is invited to join the fun.

Tickets go on sale from Saturday 4 May and can be purchased at Rosie & Rex gift shop in Thornbury High Street 9am-5pm, Monday to Saturday.

Tickets cost £8.00. Please note that the performance is suitable for those 16+.

Get your tickets soon to avoid disappointment as there is limited seating available due to the performance being set in an intimate ‘in the round’ theatre space.

To make your evening even more enjoyable, Christ the King Hall has plenty of parking nearby and bar facilities on site.
