The case of Precious Jewel

The cast of Precious Jewel

A play by a Lichfield writer will be used to help raise money for a chempotherapy unit at a local hospital.

Nobody’s Perfect Productions will perform Phil Preece’s Almost Human and Precious Jewel double bill at the Lakeside Golf Club at Rugeley Power Station on November 13.

Money raised from the show will go to the chemotherapy department at Stafford Hospital.

Nobody’s Perfect artistic director Paolo Allen said:

“The company always ensures that one of its performances are dedicated to this worthwhile cause as sadly many of us have been touched by the tragic death of a family member or friend through cancer.

“This is our opportunity to do something back in return for the amazing care that the staff provide.”

Almost Human is set in the near future and concerns the plight of recluse, geek and loner, Rob Smallman who spends his days shut up in his room endlessly playing computer war games. He seems to have lost all contact with the outside world, apart from his Gran with whom he lives. However, he has left a game playing in the background of his laptop and a very special and dangerous visitor from the screen steps from the digital world into the confines of his bedroom.

This visitor is bent on world domination and somehow, Rob has to stop her!

Precious Jewel is set in 1583, the day before Queen Elizabeth’s 50th birthday. She has been out hunting, along with her many followers, and is caught out by a terrible storm and has to take refuge in an isolated country house. The household is thrown into turmoil almost as great as the storm outside as this most prestigious of visitors descends on them. However,there are secrets and stories to unravel.
