Unique ‘Don’t Smile, Don’t Pay!’ Offer By Play Producers and Writers at Premiere

The Last Talent Show is a kind, charming and funny drama that considers the demands and rewards of celebrity.  Hamble Players are staging the first production of this new play written collaboratively by two playwrights, one of whom lives in Hamble and has been a long-time supporter of Hamble Players. The producers and writers have made a unique promise to audience members, ‘Don’t Smile, Don’t Pay!’ and will refund the cost of entry to anyone who says they didn’t smile whilst watching, so confident are they in their production.

The play charts the death throws of an UK wide talent show and is set primarily back-stage on the Grand Finale Night, which has been moved from London’s O2 to Hamble Memorial Hall for pressing financial reasons. The entrepreneur behind the scheme faces bankruptcy, the big come back for the once-famous compere is doomed and the future couldn’t be bleaker. Or could it?
