Six Characters in Search of an Author is a 1921 Italian play by Luigi Pirandello.  But Barnsley Catenians went one better than Pirandello by staging Cinderella with Five Characters at their December Circle.

Fortunately the production was very short, five minutes, with no acting skill required. President Luvvie, Andrew Hartley was producer, director and lead! Kenneth Brannagh can sleep easy though. The rest of the cast appealed for anonymity but as they didn’t write this review, or the one that went in The Stage.., they are left to right Mike Fealy (Fairy Godmother) Mike Starford (Ugly Sister) Pat Horbury (Prince Charming) Chris Horbury (Cinderella) and Andrew Hartley (Narrator).  Oh yes they were!
