Our first play is already in rehearsal.   Here’s a little bit about it…

GENERATIONS APART  by Peter Gordon

October 26th, 27th, 28th 2017

We start our season with a lovely warm-humoured and sentimental comedy from the always popular Peter Gordon.

Having met Anne at the 1969 Isle of Wight music festival, Paul decides to run off with her to a mainland commune, leaving behind his conservative life on the island. However when his family circumstances change, he is forced to rethink his options. Many years later, a chance encounter with Anne’s daughter leads Paul back in to the past. A must for all who remember the heady days of the hippy!

Directed by Richard Bateman

Cast includes:  Steve Howland, Tom Fryer, Rachel Miller, Jayne Hewson, Wyn Price, Janet Drewery

The wait is over: new season announced

For those of you have eagerly been waiting to find out what our new 2017-18 season will be – wait no longer.

boredom-1977519_960_720Thank you for your patience but as always it has been a challenge to find plays that tick all the boxes, not least the matching of members’ availability.

But now we have obtained scripts and licences to perform and we can announce the programme.

This coming season we are pleased to have found three plays that cover a range of comedy genres from three different playwrights; a lighthearted and sentimental comedy drama from the pen of Peter Gordon, always popular with our audiences; some clever humour from the master, Alan Ayckbourn, with a less well known and quite different play – if you like Ayckbourn you’ll love it. If you don’t like Ayckbourn – you’ll love it.  And finally we bring most of our members onto the stage to bring you an hilarious farce from the master of farce; Ray Cooney.

Right, time to get out pen, stylus or finger and open your diary, online calendar or whatever and reserve your viewing dates.

News Update: There is no news

I wonder if our local MP, David Davis, heading up those pesky Brexit talks thinks it's hard work negotiating the best outcome? Well, Mr. Davis, you have it easy, if you want to know about really tough challenges, negotiations, trying to get the best outcome, pleasing all constituents then try joining our Production sub-group as we sit around the table hour after hour trying to find the best-fit selection of plays for our 2017-18 season. Compromise. That's the key word. You can't please all of the people all of the time. That's the key phrase. Emerge with a united front and a clear direction. Just a few tips there.

For those who are eagerly awaiting the announcement of our new season we are getting close. We have a lovely selection of plays to choose from but the challenge as always is to find three that fit into the early, mid and late slots with available cast members.

A decision should be made by the weekend so watch this space for an announcement during next week. I bet David Davis wishes it was all over by next week! He's not alone there.
