Two women, held in a room, chained apart.
It’s a stark image.
In Nine, a one-act play by Jane Shepard, it’s that image which is used to show that the power of the spoken word can sometimes mean life or death.
Granted, it isn’t your usual amateur dramatic companies’ choice of performance.
It’s tough, gritty, powerful and at some points, shocking.
That weighty subject matter didn’t deter Leslie Amateur Drama Club’s Stephanie Baillie and Diane White, along with director Chris Gray however.
They have taken on the challenging task of portraying the relationship between two women fighting for the sanity and their life.
And their performances have been impressing audiences and judges alike.
They came runner up in the Scottish Community Drama Association’s Fife District round of the one act play festival and now go onto perform in the SCDA Eastern Division round which takes place in the Churchill Theatre, Edinburgh from 4th– 6thApril.
The Queendom went along to one of their rehearsals and you can check out an excerpt below.
