Strange Encounters of a Social Kind

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?

Each character that joins the group has their own story to tell and issues to deal with – why would they be there otherwise?

Enter a mad tea lady and a very unexpected guest and the evening may turn out rather differently than originally planned!

A comedy drama exploring what happens when a bunch of strangers are thrown together and have to deal with a tricky situation. How do they cope and will any lasting friendships be made?

Having penned six pantomimes and a number of comedy sketch shows, this is the first ever full length play written and directed by Phill Liptrot .
