A good story with believable characters

Hello. My name is June Holmes and I play the part of Letty Harnham in the forthcoming production of ‘The Day After the Fair’.

I've been a member of Saddleworth Players for more years than I care to admit to, and over those years have been in a variety of plays, but ‘The Day After the Fair’ is a favourite. It has a good story, with believable characters and a truthful ending. Based on a story by Thomas Hardy, it deals with the lives of ordinary people from a range of backgrounds.

My character, the sister of the local brewery owner, is both sympathetic and empathetic to the situation of my younger sister-in-law. She is a self-confident, well-to-do spinster of her time and I am looking forward to bringing out the different facets of her character.

Saddleworth Players will perform ‘The Day After the Fair’ at the Millgate Arts Centre, Delph, from May 20 – 27. Tickets £8 (£5 students) from
