AN original play written by a Halesowen optician is set to be performed in this year’s Worcestershire Theatre Festival.

‘Imagine?’ is the latest piece written by Mayhem Theatre’s Stephen Moran which will be on stage at The Norbury Theatre in Droitwich this Sunday (April 8).

The story tells the tale of Davey Kay (Mark Moran), a music magazine journalist who is interviewing Stuart (David Francis), who plays John Lennon in a Beatles tribute band called the Pre Fab4.

Stuart is really a painter and decorator from Cradley Heath, but Davey seems to believe that he is the reincarnation of John Lennon himself.

As the interview progresses, events take a sinister turn for the worse.

Mayhem’s entry is the first of two plays on the evening session, which starts at 7pm, with the winning play being chosen by a professional adjudicator and announced at the end if the night.

Tickets are £6 and available from The Norbury Theatre box office on 01905 770154.
