January 27th – 2:22 A Ghost Story by Danny Robins
Over the baby monitor, at 2:22 every night, Jenny hears footsteps around her daughter’s cot. Could the house be haunted? When their friends Lauren and Ben come round for a housewarming dinner, they drink wine, relive their pasts, and argue about the existence of ghosts.

Dates For Your Diary

February 10th – My Family and Other Animals by Gerald Durrell, adapted by Janys Chambers
It’s 1935, and an eccentric English family – four children, their widowed mother, and Roger the dog – arrives on the sun-soaked shores of Corfu to start a new life. For eleven-year-old Gerry Durrell, the extraordinary landscape provides the perfect playground. Its exotic fauna inspires a life-long fascination with the animal kingdom – and his much-loved memoir My Family and Other Animals

February 24th – Temple by Steve Waters
On 15 October 2011, protest movement Occupy London makes camp outside St Paul’s Cathedral. On 21 October 2011, a building that had kept open through floods, the Blitz and terrorist threats closes its doors. On 28 October, City of London initiates legal action against Occupy to begin removing them from outside the Cathedral… Steve Waters’ play Temple is a fictional account of these events, set in the heart of a very British crisis – a crisis of conscience, a crisis of authority and a crisis of faith.

March 10th – TBC

March 24th – 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
