Hucknall student Luke Gascoigne has written and directed four short plays which will be showcased at the town’s John Godber Centre on Thursday 24th July.

The New College Nottingham (NCN) student is busy preparing for the show with proceeds from the event being donated to the Christopher Bond fund to help fight and raise awareness of brain tumours.

It is through course tutor, Fay Raynor, that Luke became aware of Christopher Bond and offered to help the cause.

The cast of the plays includes past and present NCN students and members of Hucknall beased Lovelace Theatre Group. The community centre staff are also supporting the event by supplying crew support.

“The event really is a community activity to raise funds for a worthy cause,” said centre manager, Kim Pears. “I’ve had the privilege to read the plays and am very much looking forward to seeing them performed on the centre’s stage.

“Luke is a talented writer and we’ve seen both him and his colleagues perform on a number of occasions across the county in previous college productions so we are looking forward to seeing them performing in Hucknall.”

Jacob Hunt-Wheatley, from Lovelace Theatre Group, which is based in the centre has offered his services to help with lighting and sound of the production.

“Members of the centre staff are helping to organise costumes, ticket sales, and advertising in their own time to support the event,” added Kim. “All of the cast are giving their time freely to rehearse and perform the plays to raise funds for this cause.”

The show starts at 7.30pm with the doors opening at 7pm.
