A Charity performance with free admittance and a retiring collection, £587 was raised for the Charity Hope Kitchen (charity number 1131550).
Hope Kitchen is an inter-church soup kitchen in Hastings, which feeds homeless people on Thursday and Saturday evenings. Funds are being raised to purchase a property for a rehabilitation centre for people with addictions.
Clerical Errors takes place in a small disused Methodist Chapel. A family of vagrants has taken over the Chapel. The parishioners are not at all happy, even though the Chapel is not used. No-one wants to take the family in and the Social Worker is called to deal with them. Julie’s outspoken views and the plight of her family moves the Minister enough to persuade him to bed down with them in the Chapel as a squatter in order to prevent their eviction and the family being split up. Can they hang on until their dad is released from prison in five months’ time?
The play looks at a number of social issues, particularly homelessness and has a strong Christian message for all of us. Written as a hilarious comedy, it was enjoyed by the packed audience who, it seemed, could not stop laughing!
