ALTRINCHAM Little Theatre plan to be one of the first amateur societies to present Alan Ayckbourn’s Neighbourhood Watch - and is urgently seeking a leading man.

The company needs an actor in his late 40s to play the role of Martin Massie, in a play about a brother and sister who set up a neighbourhood watch group.

The duo become so authoritarian that they end up controlling the lives of residents they are supposed to protect.

Rehearsals start on August 11 and anyone interested in playing the part should email

Altrincham Little Theatre presents Neighbourhood Watch fromSeptember 28 to October 4.
