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.
"Dear Josephine and all at ehB. Just a quick note to thank you for all your help and support. It has been invaluable during a very stressful time, and I cannot begin to explain how your thoughts, advice and courage has got us through. We are thrilled to begin our lives in our new home."
