Chislehurst Players also looking for former members for anniversary party

Think tax dodging isn’t funny? Then you need to think again, says a Bromley drama group.

The Chislehurst Imperial Players are putting on the comedy and farce My Friend Miss Flint later this month – which has as its main subject the delights of not paying your dues.

The play centres around television gardening personality Tom Lambert, who is surprised to receive a call from the Inland Revenue about his supposed PR consultant Joanna Flint – who he has never heard of. When his accountant, who is also his ex-wife, admits she invented Miss Flint as a tax dodge, much drama and hilarity ensues as Lambert tries to extricate himself from the situation.

The play will be performed from Thursday, April 23 until Saturday, April 25 at 8pm each night at Chislehurst Methodist Church in Prince Imperial Road.

Tickets for the Thursday, which include a fish and chip supper, cost £13.50, and tickets for the Friday and Saturday cost £7.50.

To book, email or call 01732 852440 or 07831 197512. The production is part of the Bromley Festival.

The players are also looking for former members and their families to help celebrate their 80th anniversary in June.

There will be a free party in the church at 3pm on Saturday, June 27, which will include a tea and a one-act play.called Figments.
