about SAY IT WITH FLOWERS  

a comedy by Jane Thornton

Fresh off the back of their latest amateur dramatics production, the Parish Players learn that circumstances beyond their control are forcing them to abandon the Parish Hall.  Without anywhere to stage their plays, they decide to pull on their gardening gloves and enter the regional ‘Village in Bloom’ competition in order to express their artistic flair.  But not everyone is keen on the idea, and the seeds are quickly sown for an hilarious yet touching exploration of a village’s competitive streak, when opposing forces collide and relationships suddenly sit on opposite sides of the fence in a world where not everything is coming up roses.


Back to work

Say It With Flowers. With Janet Drewery producing, blocking and early rehearsals are under way.

Our last production seems a long time ago because we are already well into early rehearsals for our play at the end of January – Jane Thornton’s ‘Say It With Flowers‘.


Say It With Flowers by Jane Thornton will be showing 30th & 31st January & 1st February. Booking is open.

We will be posting more about this production shortly and update you on progress. But before we do our next post will feature the photo gallery we promised from ‘Passing Strangers’ before it disappears into history.

Meanwhile we are pleased to say that all the work we carried out on in-house repairs plus drainage work has meant that for the first time ever we survived the recent deluges and the Forum is still – say it quietly – dry.

Moving on…..

PASSING STRANGERS was a great success. we had great feedback and we certainly enjoyed performing it. Seamlessly, we now move onto rehearsals for our next production – SAY IT WITH FLOWERS.

This site will take a break for a few days but when we return we will be able to share photos from the last play along with news and updates about the next. And talking of the next.. it’s never too early to book so make sure you reserve your seats now – see our Booking page.
