Members of KATS – the Knebworth Amateur Theatrical Society – are finding their May production a piece of cake.

At least a piece of cake is what audience members will be served during the interval at Knebworth Village Hall from tonight (Thursday) until Saturday.

The double bill being performed features two new plays by local playwrights.

The Friends of Mike Santini, by KATS member Terry Grimwood, is set in America in 1959.

It is a supernatural tale of a singer who seems to have a strange influence over the people around him.

The cast of The Friends of Mike Santini includes Frances Farrugia, Chris Simson, Elle Dowling, Lynsey Gammage, Stephen Magona and Terry Grimwood.

Famous Island, written by local girl Katie Smith when she was just 15, takes a lighter view of life.

What if there was a luxury island where the rich and/or famous could escape to when the going got tough – having first faked their own deaths?

Cast members are Jo Simson, Ieuan Willoughby, Chris Simson and Nita Gowans.

The production starts at 7.45pm.

Tickets cost £7, concessions £6, and the price include a free piece of cake in the interval.

A licensed bar and tea/coffee are also available.

To buy tickets, call the box office / Jo Simson on 01438 814166 or 07952 199183, or visit Village News in Station Road.
