KIDDERMINSTER theatre fans are invited to evening of short plays exploring the quirkier side of life.

The Rose Theatre is back open and the Nonentities group will be delighting audiences with their 'Slice of Life' performances this week.

The show is part of a monologue programme and will feature short plays All Apologies by Neil LaBute, Cupboard Love, and Anorak of Fire by Stephen Dinsdale.

All Apologies is the story of a man who attempts to make up with his wife for his bad behaviour in the front seat of a car, tying himself in verbal knots as he seeks to avoid a genuine apology. The play features actors Bob Graham and Emma Preece.

In Cupboard Love, follows two people locked in together in a supermarket storeroom during a fire alarm. The two colleagues, played by Katie Brown and Chris Kay, explore life and each other in a humorous look at awkward situations.

The final play is set to make sure audiences leave with a smile. Anorak of Fire follows Gus Gascoigne, played by Alex Powell. Gus is a young, spotty and perpetually cheerful individual who is completely bemused by anything that isn't involved with his sole interest - trainspotting.

A 'Slice of Life' at The Rose Theatre runs from Wednesday, July 14 to Saturday, July 17. Performances start at 7.30pm.
