Play Readings

play readings

Our informal play readings usually take place on the 3rd 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 email us or contact Nan Newberry on 01442 843155 or at playreadings@lgdramaclub.com.

Wednesday June 19th – ‘All My Sons‘ by Arthur Miller

America 1947. Despite hard choices and even harder knocks, Joe and Kate Keller are a success story. They have built a home, raised two sons and established a thriving business. But nothing lasts forever and their contented lives, already shadowed by the loss of their eldest boy to war, are about to shatter. With the return of a figure from the past, long buried truths are forced to the surface and the price of their American dream is laid bare.
