Tryst To Stage Charity Show As Tribute To Dorothy Tripney

May 10, 2006

Tryst Theatre are staging a special production of their new play as a tribute to a much-loved club member who died last month.

Dorothy Tripney, the club's secretary, died after a long and brave battle with cancer.

Tryst President Frank Murray said: "The club has been devastated by Dorothy's death.

"She was a very popular and talented member of Tryst, appearing in many shows over the last twenty-five years. People will remember her last performance as Mrs Culfeathers in The Steamie in November. She was outstanding, and no-one in the audience would have guessed she was seriously unwell.

"As a tribute to Dorothy, we are going to stage our new play, Mary Queen of Scots Got Her Head Chopped Off by Liz Lochhead, in Grangemouth's Bowhouse Community Centre on Tuesday May 30 and Wednesday May 31 at 7.30pm. All proceeds from the show will go to Cancer Research UK.

"We hope that people will come along in large numbers to support the club and show their respect for Dorothy."
