The play, ‘Trevor’s House’ by Pontypool-based scriptwriter, Bob Rogers tells the story of terminally ill Byron Price who spends much of his time writing dreadful songs and sending them to famous singers. His adult son, Trevor, has special needs and loves computer games. Byron’s two mercenary daughters circle like vultures, waiting to snatch the family home.
Rogers, whose successes include the highly-acclaimed BBC comedy series ‘Kerr in the Community’, produced by Gareth Gwenlan and the BAFTA nominated TV play, ‘Unintended’, will also be bringing the play to Cardiff’s Gate Arts Centre on May 22nd.
Rogers states, ‘The play takes place in a toxic family environment where the virtual world of gory gaming is sometimes preferable to the real-life knock-down drag-out war that threatens to erupt closer to home. Compassion and innocence find themselves in a battle with bitterness and greed – but love and laughter have always been powerful trump cards to play.’
Trevor’s House opens at the Tabard Theatre, Bath Road, London W4 1LW on April 3rd. For theatre information please contact Tabard Theatre, 2 Bath Road, London, W4 1LW.
