Tempting Fête! 
by Alan Robinson
Directed by Martin Butler
Co Directed by Sharon Wakefield
This summer enjoy the goings on at the Midsomer Wallop Village Fete. Full of the characters of the village from the local farmer, the local gossip to the leader of the local cake club and many more inbetween. There is never a dull moment in Midsomer Wallop and this particular day will prove to be a bit different from the normal Plenty of fun with cakes and what better than with the cake club at the centre of all the attention, plenty of mishaps along the way, mix with it confusion at a jumble sale and trousers coming off and mixed up but who ends up wearing whose trousers!!! 
Cathy Droop is trapped in an idyllic nightmare. Her husband's gone native and she's been taken hostage by the ladies from the local Cake Club, who only want her for her macaroons. Forced to run their cake stall at the village fete, Cathy decides to make a daring escape, only to find her getaway thwarted by a melange of squashed confections, tangled bunting, rampaging bullocks and irresistible temptation. As misunderstandings lead to misdemeanours, Cathy soon realises that you can't always have your cake and eat it.  A calamitous comedy that pastiches everything from classic farce to carry on.. So just how will Cathy's day finish and who does she end up with and has this really proved to be a Tempting Fete for her....Only one way to find out, join in the summer fun at Shinfield Players Theatre.
