The plays are Identity Crisis, a play by Christopher Kell and directed by Sarah Gibbon (making her directorial debut with the Players) and Little Grimley Presents Strictly Sex Factor (On Ice), a comedy by David Tristram directed by Jo Fraser.

Identity Crisis tells the story of a daughter in her 40s who goes to visit her ill mother who is lying heavily sedated in a hospital bed.

As she attempts to talk to her mother she begins to question her whole life and even her very identity.

Strictly Sex Factor tells the story of a rather unsuccessful amateur dramatics group which is desperate to recruit new members and get the public more interested in its work.

In order to do so the cast resort to some rather unorthodox methods with hilarious results.

The plays take place at Brackley Town Hall (upstairs) on Thursday, July 17 at 7.30pm and Friday, July 18 at 7.30pm.

Tickets are £10 which includes a cheese and biscuits supper and a glass of wine or fruit juice and are available from Brackley Town Hall or by ringing Keith on 01280 701501.
