Members of bereavement group meet star of the show on Watford Palace Theatre trip
One hundred members of a bereavement care group attended the opening of "Daytona" at Watford Palace Theatre last night and enjoyed a private audience with the show’s star, Maureen Lipman.
Lipman, who began her acting career treading the boards at the Palace, spoke to members of Harrow Berevement Care group during a post production reception in the Green Room and was delighted to receive a gift of a bouquet of sunflowers.
The flowers were presented by Bobbi Riesel, head of training at the group and Jack Lynes, Chair, said a few words of welcome.
Refreshments were served and all had a chance to discuss the play, which was set in the US in the 90’s. Daytona by Oliver Cotton seemed, on the surface, to be about ball room dancing, but in reality concerned much deeper themes, about what it means to be Jewish, about love, passion, revenge and adapting to the past.
The evening raised more than £900 for the charity which relies entirely on voluntary funding.
This is the first time that Harrow Bereavement Care (a local charity operating in Harrow, Hillingdon and into Hertfordshire supporting bereaved adults and children) has arranged such a premiere.
