Wedding bells chiming for Duns Players on Sunday

It’s become a Duns Players tradition to open Reivers Week in fine theatrical style with an original production and they’re sticking with it for 2013.

Over the last two years audiences at the Volunteer Hall have been gripped by the saga of Duns lassie Tracey.

She was the unlikely heroine in 2011’s ‘Eyeload 4’, and given top billing in ‘Tracey’s Hen Do’ so it’s only right that audiences will now be treated to her impending nuptials in ‘Tracey’s Wedding’.

In the third of a trilogy of romantic comedies written by Bob Noble, Tracey finally gets to marry her fiancé of eight years, Wull.

But things do not run smoothly. Why does the best man, Chris, have to call an ambulance? Who invited Wull’s former girlfriend Bridget? What happens to Tracey’s 15 year old niece when she drinks alcopops? Who is ‘Uncle Peter’ and what gives him the right to turn up at the wedding without an invitation?

The story will unravel with a cast packed full of familiar faces involved in the action.

Tracey will be played by Lynn Gray,, last seen in ‘High Society’, while her other half will be played by DC, recently on stage as Hugo Horton in Duns Players ‘The Vicar of Dibley’.

“It’s a locally written play with lots of local references and local dialect,” Bob explained.

“We’ve had a lot of fun doing it .”

‘Tracey’s Wedding’ starts at 7.30pm on Sunday, with the evening also including wedding themed songs from Duns Operatic Society.
