Curdridge Amateur Drama Group recently performed Home, I’m Darling by Laura Wade.
A spokesman from the group said: "Many felt that this ranked amongst the very best productions in the long history of CADG.
"We rarely single out anyone for praise, as the whole company deserves our plaudits but we now make an exception for Bex Mehers, whose brilliant characterisation of Judy -so ably assisted by Stuart Hillman as Johny- gave the whole production (under director Margi Green) a truly professional feel.
"CADG has always encouraged younger members and their faith proved absolutely spot on once again."
The group is holding an open meeting on May 11, at 7.45pm, held in the Reading Rooms in Curdridge. For more details, visit:, or email:
