Consuming Passions

Alan Ayckbourn

'What on earth’s the matter with these people? He took absolutely no notice of me. Like I didn’t even exist... You can see me. Can’t you? You two? You can see me? Can’t you?'

Melanie believes she has foreseen the future. But has she really? Or is it all in her mind? True or false, she has seen events which threaten the life of one she secretly loves and she feels they are in terrible danger. What can she possibly do or say to prevent things happening and who will even believe her?

This amateur production of Consuming Passions is presented by an arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd.
