On Saturday 12th November, Chepstow Drill Hall will be filled with voices representing the River Wye.
Producer Roger Kerley is the organiser of the event. “I wanted to bring together performers and musicians to both celebrate the River Wye and raise awareness of the dangers of pollution to the health of the river,” he says.
“I am delighted that Chepstow Town Council is supporting this production,” says Roger. “It will be an evening of drama and music, performed by Odyssey Theatre Company, Carmina 3 and Chepstow Singing Club, all on the theme of the river.
“Local writer Adele Cordner has written a satirical monologue especially for the production. She interviewed local campaigner Angela Jones for her research. Adele will perform her new comic play, A D(r)ip In The Wye which is directed by Deborah Evans-Gale for Odyssey Theatre Company.
“Pippa Marland, vocalist of Carmina 3 will delight the audience with their fabulous folk songs and The Chepstow Singing Club, made up of community singers from Monmouthshire, will sing river-themed songs, led by Musical Director Jayne Thomas.
“On display will be a range of artwork from students of Susan Amos at Plough House Art Group, Chepstow and poetry from Chepstow’s NaCOT writing group and other local poets . Refreshments will be served in the interval and all profits will go towards Gwent Wildlife Trust.”
