A FAMILY’S disintegration during lockdown is being chronicled by Glusburn theatre company Falling Stars.

The amateur actors have moved online while the theatres and village halls they normally perform at are closed due to Covid- 19.

They are performing Wine On A School Night, a drama serial with regular broadcasts of Zoom chats featuring a fictional family.

Falling Stars director Beccy Durham is writing the ongoing play, and she says there has been excellent public feedback for the first three episodes. One viewer described it as “a gripping drama which we can all relate to during the lockdown experience”.

Beccy said the drama focused on a family in lockdown, where dad has organised its first chat on the online platform Soon and is very proud of himself.

Beccy said: “Siblings Rachel, Kelly and Tom are each dealing with their own struggles during this unprecedented time.

“Lottie, Kelly’s daughter, has just moved in with her boyfriend and her Grandma is late for the Zoom chat, last seen walking her dog by the river. Just your typical family having a chat online, on a school night!”

Wine On A School Night follow scaffolding Stars’s successful competition for local people to deliver monologues that could be watched on social media.
