This year’s Aldermaston Dinner Theatre evenings, at the Parish Hall, has the farce DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS by Geoff Bamber as the entertainment.
Ambassador Miranda Carruthers is trying to make the most of her posting to a South American backwater. She’s expecting a diplomatic bigwig to celebrate the 150th anniversary of one of the local revolutions (the glorious one, apparently), but what she actually gets is a Foreign Office investigator, looking for evidence of extravagance. That and a corrupt politician trying to elope with her husband, the local security chief chasing her around her office and one of her husband’s previous liaisons turning-up with less clothing than is customary in diplomatic circles. And, oh yes, there’s an anarchist on the loose.
