MEMBERS of Royston's Corvus Amateur Drama Society will be desperately trying to remember who they are when performing their latest production.
David Tristam's comedy, Forget-Me-Knot, is being staged by Cads as part of the forthcoming Royston Arts Festival.
Producer Emma Daintrey said: "Amateur groups love doing comedy, partly because of the instant feedback you get from audiences, but it's actually quite a serious business."
Forget-me-Knot concerns the plight of a mystery man found wandering the streets of Leicester at 4am without the slightest clue of how he got there.
He has total amnesia and only a bruised head (and a suspicious policeman) for company. He might be one Robert Zeinfeld, last seen by his wife boarding the train for Blackpool.
But then again, maybe he isn't, as the evidence is both confused and confusing. Then again, perhaps the amnesia is a cover-up for something else?

Featuring fickle witnesses, fearsome wives, foul play, and frying pans, the story twists and turns and it soon becomes apparent that all is "knot" what it seems.
Emma said: "We have four extremely talented actors, a hugely capable technical crew, and a clever and wickedly funny script by an excellent contemporary writer - I know the Royston audiences will love it."
