During 2023, Eltham Little Theatre are offering U3A members half price tickets for their Sunday matinee and Thursday evening shows. The dates for which this is applicable for Almost Maine are Sundays, 3rd and 10th September and Thursday, 14th September.
Here’s the blurb: A woman carries her heart, broken into 19 pieces, in a small paper bag. A man shrinks to half his former size, after losing hope in love. A couple keep the love they have given each other in large red bags, or compress the mass into the size of a diamond. These playful and surreal experiences are commonplace in the world of Almost, Maine, where on one deeply cold and magical Midwinter Night, the citizens of Almost experience the life-altering power of the human heart. Relationships end, begin, or change beyond recognition, as strangers become friends, friends become lovers, and lovers turn into strangers. Propelled by the mystical energy of the aurora borealis and populated with characters who are humorous, plain-spoken, thoughtful and sincere, this play is a series of loosely connected tales about love, each with a compelling couple at its centre, each with its own touch of sorcery.
Here are the mechanics: you book your tickets online. Choose the date, then the number of ‘U3A member’ tickets, then enter the ‘202350’ discount code in the ‘gift certificate / promotion code’ box, then pay.
