THE COLLECTOR, the Arden Theatre Group’s entry in Kent Drama Association Full Length Play Festival, is a tense, powerful drama adapted by Mark Healy from the novel by John Fowles.
An unremarkable office clerk, Clegg, collects butterflies and has become the owner of a remote country house purchased with a lottery win. This house must be furnished with all things beautiful from the butterfly collection, to Miranda, an art student worshipped from afar but scarcely aware of Clegg’s existence. The only solution is to kidnap Miranda, imprisoning her in the cellar, all leading to a startling, dramatic conclusion.
Direction is in the experienced hands of Emma Taylor, and the production is staged at Faversham’s Arden Theatre, Leslie Smith Drive, on 23, 24, 25 March at 8 pm. Tickets costing £7.00 Adults, and £6.00 Concessionary are available on line – or from Carter’s Newsagents, 15 Market Street, Faversham.
