You would be excused for thinking that PMT stood for a female condition but in Runcorn it stands for People Making Theatre, a group of dedicated drama practitioners from age 8-80. We had the recent pleasure of meeting up with one of its key members Lilian. The group are all set to create 6 dramatic stories inspired by the stories of Maurice Littlemore and Roy Gough, two local historians. Do the titles give anybody any clues about who they might be about:
- Mrs Two Scones
- Sherry Lady
- Gum and Oranges from the American boats
- Walley and his Mum
- Mrs No shillings
- The walking Football supporter
During our conversations we talked about how the past could inform the future. We hatched a few plans:
- Now that the river is cleaner could we start fishing for shrimps again and sell Runcorn shrimps to the fish man on the market.
- Could we get Maurice to unleash his special Littlmore's pie recipe one more time to let people try a bit of the past at out event in July?
