A WEE COUNTY drama club has enjoyed night after night of sold out shows following its latest production – and there are still four more performances yet to come.

Alloa’s Alman Dramatic Club, now in its 80th year, has been performing Parking Lot in Pittsburgh, written by Scottish playwright Anne Downie.

The play tells the story of Maggie, who has returned to Scotland after 50 years in America to be reunited with her sisters.

She has property in Pittsburgh and her family have agendas – the most obvious being, who will inherit her fortune?

The show ran at The Coach House Theatre in Alloa over the weekend, with further performances on the cards this week.

Gerry Docherty, Alman’s artistic director, told the Advertiser: “It has been a complete sell out and we are getting very positive feedback.

“One person described it as ‘awesome’, which is a really nice thing to hear.”

He was keen to praise the club’s newer members, who have managed to pull off some spectacular performances as key characters.

He said: “Some of the ladies who are playing the sisters are new, or relatively new, to the stage and have worked remarkably hard to master some very difficult parts.”

When talking about the dramatic club and its aims, he added: “The theatre tries to bring plays by new play writers or classics, comedies and dramas etcetera to Alloa.

“We’re historic, and now the only non-professional drama group in the area, and we’re all really excited about our next play: Dracula.”

The last chance to catch the show will this Saturday, with additional performances tonight, tomorrow and Friday.
