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