Gleaming for an Instant
by Stuart Handysides
15th - 16th October 2020
~ Directed by CoPs Creative Team ~
Online production

It’s a big birthday for Michael Stevens.  But with a parking ticket and a puncture, things are not going to plan.  As the agony piles on, Michael makes a momentous decision . . .

Written by our own Stuart Handysides and featuring a welcome return by Ian Houghton (Moonlight and Magnolias) in the central role, this is one digital performance you shouldn’t miss.  Also in the stellar cast is Patrick Sunners, Des Turner, Hazel Halliday and Davina Foster and introduces Erica Joscelyn – new member.

Following two sell-out events on Zoom, CoPs is proud to announce Gleaming for an Instant, by Stuart Handysides, will be available to watch on YouTube from 7.15pm Saturday 17th October until midnight next Saturday 24th.

This, our first online production, has been filmed in the actors' homes using the popular Zoom app. Unsurprising therefore that it has also been a huge challenge for everyone involved, both cast and the creative team behind the webcams! We are all aware that live theatre is struggling to survive, with no end in sight for a return to any kind of normality. Like many others, we are therefore going online and beaming this production direct to your home.

We hope that you enjoy our efforts and continue to support us. If you can manage it, a donation to our Theatre Development Fund will go towards financing our exciting plans for extending the building.  Donations may be made through Crowdfunder: www.crowdfunder.co.uk/cops-theatre-development-fund
