Programme for Volunteers

Written by Hilary Mackelden

Staged by Hook Players in 2017

Directed by Warwick Howe

Produced by Charlotte Handy

Stage managed by Paul Teuma

Brenda is running a charity shop, with the slightly addled Prue and the sight-impaired Denny. But there are changes in the charity and John Turk is keen on a new image - younger staff. Brenda has to cope with her customers, a community service offender and the new regime.
