MALVERN’S theatre received a visit from an esteemed playwright to celebrate its re-opening week.

Peter Terson, playwright of “Mooney and his Caravans” visited Malvern Theatres and met with Malvern Theatres Young COmpany members Moa Myerson and Toby Burchell.

Chief executive of Malvern Theatres Nic Lloyd said: “This was an exceptional and exciting opportunity for our cast to meet the author of the play they are starring in.

“To be able to speak to the playwright and understand more about the play is a real rarity for many young actors and we were delighted to be able to welcome Peter to the theatre.

“To say it’s been a difficult six months is an understatement. The future of Malvern Theatres is still uncertain as this crisis continues, but we were adamant that we would deliver live theatre for our audiences as soon as circumstances allowed.

“We’ve been overwhelmed by everyone’s support and our public fundraising campaign has now reached £180,000. "
