Father and daughter writing, acting and directing team head for Birmingham Theatre!
This September, the Blue Orange Theatre in Birmingham will be playing host to Stourbridge-based A Comedy Theatre Group, with not one, but TWO plays on offer over six nights! These plays are penned by the father and daughter comedy-writing team of Phill and Laura Liptrot.
A Comedy Theatre Group was formed in 2010 with the intention of giving people who had possibly no acting experience at all, or had not acted since their school days, the opportunity to learn a little about theatre, and perform on stage. Now, after years of performing at local church halls and community centers, the group is ready to explode onto the Birmingham stage!
‘First Aid’, written, directed by and featuring Laura Liptrot, will be performed on the 23rd to the 25th September at 7.30pm. After its roaring success in Stourbridge and two sell-out performances at the Rose Theatre in Kidderminster, this exploration of what happens when a bunch of strangers are brought together to study a subject about which none of them have the least idea, is ready to be launched upon a Birmingham audience! Heads roll, tensions as tight as bandages snap and dilemmas it will take more than a sticking plaster to heal are uncovered in this heart-warming, fast, farcical comedy, recognisable to anyone who has ever been sent on a course! ‘First Aid’ is guaranteed to leave you in stitches! 
Then on the 26th to the 28th of September at 7.30pm, it is the turn of ‘Strange Encounters of a Social Kind’, which not only includes Laura in its cast, but is also written and directed by her dad!
‘Strange Encounters’ is another community centre-based exploration of human interaction and the often comical and sometimes tragic need for companionship.
An encounter group sounds like a good idea.  Arrange for an assortment of lonely people to meet up at the local community centre with the intention of making new friends.  What could possibly go wrong?  Enter a grumpy caretaker, a mad tea lady and a very unexpected guest and the evening may turn out rather differently than originally planned! A comedy drama examining what happens when a bunch of strangers are thrown together and have to deal with a tricky situation - how will they cope and can any lasting friendships be made?
Phill Liptrot has written and directed six pantomimes and a number of sketch shows which have been performed at local church halls, festivals and fund raising events and he is the producer of ‘A Comedy Theatre Group’. Having directed various plays by other authors, this is the first ever full-length play written by Phill himself.
