Simplicity - 13th to 15th December 2017

NB CURTAIN UP FOR THIS PRODUCTION IS 7.30PM
By Adam Colclough
Simplicity is two one act plays; Answer and There’s Nobody at the Door. They are both modern plays written in a contemporary style with lighting and sound an integral part of the productions.
The plays explore the emotions of every day life.
Party Piece - 22nd to 27th January 2018
By Richard Harris.
This amateur production of 'Party Piece' is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French Ltd.
We first performed this play 20 years ago. This is a well-written, fast-paced and very funny play set in two adjoining back gardens of feuding neighbours. It is the night of Michael & Roma's fancy dress, house-warming barbeque. The evening looks set to be a lively one until a string of hilarious disasters strike, including a distinct lack of guests, a burning garden shed, a marauding Zimmer frame and the prospect of an irate husband on the prowl. And if you remember it from last time, “Hat!”
Bouncers - 19th to 24th March 2018
This amateur production of 'Bouncers' is presented by special arrangement with Josef Weinberger Ltd.
One of John Godber's most performed plays Bouncers is an iconic play first staged thirty years ago with the theme still relevant today.
The setting is a night club with four actors playing several roles of lads and lasses out on the town. You may have been there, seen it and done it.
The play is great theatre, challenging and funny.
It does contain some strong language.
Confusions - 21st to 26th May 2018
This amateur production of 'Confusions' is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French Ltd.
A fast-paced comedy by Alan Ayckbourn.
Confusions is a series of short, interlinked one-act plays. Some of the characters appear in more than one play; others are only seen in one.
Each play is vastly different. Each however, deals with the common themes of loneliness and relationships.
The characters and their conflicts are immediately recognizable and applicable to everyday lives, and each play leaves the audience questioning their own lives and relationships.
