The ITS are taking part in the competitive Gibraltar Diamond Jubilee Drama Festival which runs from 14th to 17th March. Eight one-act plays are being performed in front of a professional adjudicator who will assess them critically and award prizes in a number of categories such as Best Play, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress and for several other theatrical aspects.

The ITS play is "Happy Birthday Me" by Simon Williams (possibly better known as an actor, particularly for playing the son James in the long-running TV series "Upstairs Downstairs"). The play is set in a retirement home for elderly actors and is a moving bitter-sweet comedy which we think and hope audiences will enjoy. We are performing it at Ince's Hall, at the south end of Main Street, Gibraltar, on Friday 16th March, when two other plays entered by other societies will also be on.

It should be pointed out that the ITS are performing the play again the following weekend (23-25 March), this time in our normal venue of the Atalaya Park Hotel disco, along with a second ITS one-act play, so that together they will comprise a "double bill" of theatrical entertainment.

Visitors to this website will have the option of seeing the play in Spain or Gibraltar. Tickets for the Gibraltar Festival can be reserved by ringing the local Box Office on +350 2007 5826.
