‘CELL TALK’

By Dana Bagshaw

Saturday 22nd April   -   7 pm   -   St. Mary’s Church, Gamlingay

‘Cell Talk’ is an hour-long play, in the form of a costumed read performance, which follows the development of an imagined relationship between two real women who lived in the 14th century.  Dame Julian of Norwich became an anchoress in a cell attached to the smallest church in Norwich and Margery Kempe was a younger woman known to have visited her there over a period of ten years.  Both women experienced divine ‘showings’ and during the duologue of the play these are discussed as their relationship develops.  Their very frank conversations range from deeply profound to, at times, light-hearted and humorous.  Sources of inspiration for the play include modern translations of books written by both Margery and Julian.

Dame Julian will be played by Angela Harris.

Angela was a member of Gamlingay Players for many years before moving to Stamford where she has performed with the Stamford Shakespeare Company and the Shoestring Theatre Company.  She has also performed at the Minack open-air theatre in Cornwall and at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Margery Kempe will be played by Jane Bower.

Jane is a teacher, actress, writer and artist and is an Associate Lecturer at Cambridge University’s Faculty of Education.  She is a member of Equity and acts professionally, writing and performing her own one-woman shows.  In 2010 she was commissioned by the actress Maureen Lipman to write a show which they performed together.

Production Assistant – Wendy Walford.

Wendy has previously directed ‘Cell Talk’ for the Cameo Theatre Company in Cambridge and says she is delighted to be re-visiting this captivating play with Angela and Jane.

The evening will also include a short A Capella performance of appropriate music and an interval during which light refreshments will be provided.  We aim to attract a large audience from all around the district but very much hope our own community of Gamlingay will take advantage of this unique opportunity.

TICKETS : £8 incl. tea/coffee and light refreshments
