World enough and time to catch Bancroft Players premiere at Hitchin theatre

These days women have it all – or do they? That’s something examined in Sarah Sigal’s new play World Enough And Time, which gets its amateur premiere at Hitchin’s Queen Mother Theatre this week.
The show jumps between three eras – there’s present-day high-flyer Celia who seems to have a top career, money in the bank and a picture-perfect family before a friend from her past appears and her privileged life quickly starts to crumble.
Then there’s 1930s journalist Pamela, assigned to interview little-known American socialite Wallis Simpson and being pushed beyond her comfort zone.
And we also meet Civil War noblewoman Lady Anne, heading a household which is struggling to survive the winter with Cromwell’s Army bearing down on them and with quite enough troubles without the spectre of witchcraft to contend with.
The show opens on Wednesday in the theatre’s Richard Whitmore studio space, and runs until Saturday with performances at 7.45pm each evening.
