Before moving to Devon, Glynis was involved in a large number of Duston Players productions in Northampton.

Early in 2005 she was in the thriller "The price to pay " in which she played the part of Carol, seen here being threatened by a kidnapper.

In November 2005 Glynis appeared in " Blackadder " taking two parts:

"The Wise Woman"

who Blackadder turned to
for advice
when he fell in love with "Bob"

Mildred Helga      
  • In April 2007 Glynis was the Policewoman in Blood Money where she was heard at the door but never came onstage. Glynis was also Stage manager for this production.

  • In November 2007 Glynis was also heard but not seen as she did not audition for a part in Country Wife. We were hoping to sell our house and move to Devon, but were still here when she agreed to be the Prompter, and was kept busy as the cast found the script of this restoration comedy to be quite a challenge.

  • Finally, in March 2008, Glynis had the part of a 'batty' medium in her last production with Duston Players, a comedy entitled "Late of This address", after which we moved to Devon - Who says type-casting does not happen!

Glynis has been Producer for a number of Duston Players productions, including Are You Being Served, Little Women and Baggy.
