May Production - Update


"Murdered to Death" by Peter Gordon

Performance Dates

28th to 30th May


This is an hilarious spoof of the best Agatha Christie traditions, with an assembled cast of characters guaranteed to delight: Bunting the butler, an English Colonel with the prerequisite stiff upper lip, a shady French art dealer and his moll, bumbling local inspectors and a well meaning local sleuth who seems to attract murder - they’re all here, and all caught up in the side-splitting antics which follow the mysterious death of the owner of a country manor house. But will the murderer be unmasked before everyone else has met their doom, or will audiences die laughing first?



This has been cast and rehearsals have started. Everyone has been throwing themselves into character and having fun. It's going to be a very exciting production to be in and to watch!


There are some new faces and some old ones (some older than others...) in this ensemble production.

March Social 


Play 


Reading



Join us for an informal social play reading at The King's Head at 8pm.

This month's offering will be "Pygmalion" by George Bernard Shaw.

Pygmalion both delighted and scandalised its first audiences in 1914. A brilliantly witty reworking of the classical tale of the sculptor Pygmalion, who falls in love with his perfect female statue, it is also a barbed attack on the British class system and a statement of Shaw's feminist views. In Shaw's hands, the phoneticist Henry Higgins is the Pygmalion figure who believes he can transform Eliza Doolittle, a cockney flower girl, into a duchess at ease in polite society. The one thing he overlooks is that his 'creation' has a mind of her own.

We hold these on the second Tuesday of each month (apart from our production months of February, May and October). They are an excellent way of meeting us in an informal setting if you are thinking of joining us, or if you don't fancy getting up on stage but love reading. Or just come along and listen!
