A break from Valentine's Day

As a break from Valentine’s Day, Escaping the Perfects is the latest show by Lancaster Dukes theatre’s Hourglass group whose ages range from 15 to 40-plus.

Over the past few months, they have been working with director Steve Fairclough on a project with love at its heart. They’ve developed writing and performance skills to produce a play about a group of people who find a place in Lancaster to escape all the schmaltz surrounding February 14.

Escaping the Perfects is the second project by Hourglass, who meet weekly and include members of the Junior Actors Group for ages 15 and 16 and its Primetime drama group for those aged 40 plus.
