The latest play written and performed by Warwickshire based Edinburgh Fringe Festival star Ginny Davis – about moving house - has been part sponsored by Leamington estate agency ehB Residential.
The play is being debuted at Wellesbourne Village Hall on Sunday – and ehB decided to help fund the production because it struck a chord with its director Edward Bromwich.
“A play about the ups and downs of moving to a new house sounds great fun. And when Ginny told us our sponsorship would fund the character of ‘Husband’, who is the vendor, it sounded a perfect fit,” he explained.
Ginny, who plays all nine parts in the play explained: “Husband is the only one with any sense and he is a willing traveller to the supermarket when it is teeming with rain, which is more than can be said for many husbands.”
UpDownSizing is the latest in a series of stand alone comedies Ginny has written about a woman, Ruth Rich, and her family – one of which was a total sell-out at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
Her writing style and observation have been likened to that of Alan Bennett, no less.
"We have found EHB really good to work with - you have all been very proactive on our behalf, and provided good down to earth advice. Your documentation in the booklet and the plan of the house was exemplary. This is in contrast to the more expensive and more national company dealing with our purchase. We would strongly recommend EHB to anyone wanting to sell their property in this area."
