The Crone and He Who Dares! with Margo Carruthers and Jay Perry

Jay Perry and Margo Carruthers, those marvels of music, mirth and theatrical mayhem, will be staging one of their rare duo extravaganzas.
With their wide and varied expertise in all aspects of singing in the traditional style and their penchant for theatrics, Margo & Jay will have you thoroughly beguiled. Being so close to All Soul’s Night (aka Hallowe’en) you should expect some Bluenose Ghosts. But… being Jay & Margo… you should also expect the unexpected .

Confidential to those who dared ask:
Q. Will the Crone be there?
A. Yes. Don’t say you weren’t warned.
Q. Will Margo play guitar?
A. Yes. Don’t say you weren’t warned.
Q. Will there be puppets?
A. Only if our audience is easily manipulated
Seriously… no comment on the puppets. We have to keep SOME surprises.

Our theme this week is

Night had fallen. The decorations were set. The Lady was ready. It wouldn’t be long now before the neighbourhood would be resonating with YOUNG HUNTING for treats. “No treats here,” she giggled, “except for mine.”

Next door, THE SWEET TRINITY of BFFs were checking out their costumes. BONNIE ANNIE, white teeth a-gleaming, was resplendent as RINORDINE. ALLISON GROSSed everyone out as THE LAILY WORM. ELIZA LONGed for something special too but with THE CRUEL MOTHER holding the pursestrings, it would take something akin to THE SUFFOLK MIRACLE.

Just then a knock sounded at the door. “It’s the boys!” they shrieked. They had promised to be there by dark and LORD RANDALL and THOMAS RHYMER were right on time. “Sorry we LOST JIMMY WHALEN but knowing him, THE CONSTANT FARMER’S SON will surely TURNIP before long.”

“Ha! Ha!” groaned the girls as they all set out. Next door, the atmosphere was positively electric. Blood curdling shrieks and wails eminated from THE UNQUIET GRAVE displayed on the front lawn. “It looks & sounds so real.”

Unbeknownst to them it was. Jimmy wasn’t lost at all. He knew exactly where he was and he didn’t like it one bit. LADY MARGARET, on the other hand, was ecstatic. Any moment now, the late Jimmy Whalen would be meeting up with his friends. Trick AND Treat J
