Paulton Amateur Dramatic Society
After a deserved rest since its last production, Paulton Amateur Dramatic Society (PADS) burst onto the Village Hall stage last Friday and Saturday night with the hilarious stage play Habeas Corpus written by Alan Bennett.
The play is set within Doctor Arthur Wicksteed's surgery and house in 1970's Brighton and Hove.
Arthur Wicksteed played by Rich Morgan, presided over this typical farce of the Whitehall genre.
Alan Bennett provided a superb script full of innuendo and double entendre, the complexities of which director Bernard Welch wrestled with and brought to life in an admirable production.

Charles Bentley, PADS promotions officer, said: "The audience came away with some memorable performances.
"I feel everyone deserved a mention but who could forget Garry Yoxall as the lecherous and imbecilic Canon Throbbing who could not pronounce his "r's", and who together with John Plucknett as Mr Shanks, John Denford as Sir Percy Shorter and Bernard Welch as the suicidal Mr Purdue, lost their trousers at some stage of the performance but thankfully not their lines.
"An extremely entertaining evening was enjoyed by all.
"And for those who missed the opportunity, there is one further performance this coming Saturday at Farrington Hall where the doors will be open at 7pm and curtain up at 7.30pm."
