Tryst Theatre 'C' are through to the Eastern
Divisional Final of the 2011 SCDA One-Act Play Festival.
Their one-act version of Yasmina Reza's hit comedy

Tryst Chairman Frank Murray was quick to congratulate the
teams, "It's a huge achievement for the club to take
both first and second place in the festival.
"I'd like to take the opportunity to welcome Brian Paterson's

improves for next time!
"New member Daniela Shankland made her first festival
appearance in Truth, Beauty and Contact Lenses
so welcome to her and congratulations to everyone involved
in both productions."

Art director Alan Clark says, "The
comedy is less about art; more about friendship tested to
its absolute limit. That and cashew nuts."
The Eastern Divisional Final takes place at the Howden Park
Centre, Livingston on the 17th-19th March.
