Happy New Year

Happy New Year to all and thanks for your support during 2017. For early 2018 we have two more productions for you before our summer break. In just three weeks time we have RolePlay, a wonderful comedy by Alan Ayckbourn and then at the end of April we have It Runs In The Family, a manic farce by Ray Cooney. Full details and ticket information are here on the website.

Last minute prezzies?

Are you looking for stocking fillers? How about tickets to see RolePlay in January? A bargain at just £7 each it could be the very gift that brings the biggest smile to the faces of your loved ones or friends….. Well, perhaps a slight exaggeration, but it is a good time to be getting tickets and guaranteeing the best seats and choice of performance night. And if you do, then why not wrap them up for Xmas morning as that little extra treat.

Go to our booking page and request tickets either online or by phone. Just click here to go to the booking page, or here to find out more about this play.

And here is the first reveal of our new poster, hopefully, going up this week.

About RolePlay

Our middle play returns to the master himself, Alan Ayckbourn, with a quite different comedy.  Originally part of the trilogy ‘Damsels in Distress’ this very funny play stands on its own.

Justin and Julie-Ann, hopelessly mismatched in love, are about to introduce their respective parents to each other over dinner – Justin’s upper-crust alcoholic mother and Julie-Ann’s bigoted father and prim mother. Into this doomed scenario drops, quite literally, via the balcony upstairs, Paige Petite, a former lap dancer and her thick gun-toting minder employed by her gangster boyfriend leading to a hilarious clash of cultures and families.

Directed by Jayne Hewson

Cast includes:  Tom Fryer, Wendy Fairburn, Nic Johnson, Steve Howland, Dianne Turner, Gill Collins and introducing  Gary Vann.
