October 28th – Without Apologies by Thom Thomas

A sequel to The Importance of Being Earnest, Without Apologies chronicles the adventures of the two famous couples from Oscar Wilde’s famous comedy. It is now 1933 when England and they, have fallen on hard times. A penniless Cecily and Ernest arrive unexpectedly on the doorstep of Gwen and Algernon’s humble London abode. Panic ensues as this wild comedy of intertwining plots races to its farcical conclusion.

Dates For Your Diary

November 4th (changed from November 11th) – The Good Life by Jeremy Sams
Jeremy Sams’ stage play, based on the hugely popular TV sitcom by John Esmonde and Bob Larbey, reunites the well-loved characters (Tom and Barbara, and Margot & Jerry, and Geraldine the goat) as they get themselves into and out of scrapes – some old, some new, all hilarious.

November 25th – TBC

December 9th – TBC

I look forward to seeing you soon

in normal times…

Our informal play readings usually take place on the 2nd Wednesday of the month at 7.45pm in the Village Hall Committee Room. They give as an opportunity to enjoy a wide variety of plays throughout the year, some that we might consider performing or couldn’t perform for various practical reasons, and for us to become characters that we couldn’t possibly be on stage. All without having to learn any lines!

There’s no need to book – just come along and enjoy a glass of wine or cup of coffee, read a part or two, or just listen; you’ll be very welcome. For more information please contact me, Nan Newberry, on 01442 843155 or at
