A wooden performance


VICTORIA Wood fans get the chance to settle back and watch another VW disciple at work this week.

Confused? It’s simple.

Gladys Winter is Victoria’s biggest fan. She doesn’t just watch Miss Wood’s stage deliveries, she absorbs them and regurgitates the words – at the slightest hint of trouble brewing, Gladys breaks into a song, or a sketch.

If you like characters like Kitty, the Sacharel sales assistant and hairdresser Madeleine, you’ll love this show.

Taking on the role of Gladys is Mo Shapiro, a regular performer with Northampton’s Royal & Derngate Actors’ Company.

She has also taken parts in three plays by the pen of Louise Roche, who had a big hand in this production as well.

Victoria Wood & Me, a fans tribute is at Madcap Theatre on Sunday evening.

Tickets are £6, the show is at 7.30pm.

Right, let’s do it, all the educated theatre fans do it, let’s book those tickets!

Call MK 320179 and take a pew for a slice of wood-en humour.
