Wednesday October 17th at 7.45pm, Little Gaddesden Village Hall Committee Room, A Bunch of Amateurs by Nick Newman & Ian Hislop from an original story by Jonathan Gershfield & John Ross
Keen to boost his flagging career, fading Hollywood action hero, Jefferson Steele, arrives in England to play King Lear in Stratford only to find that this is not the birthplace of the Bard but a sleepy Suffolk village and the cast are a bunch of amateurs. Jefferson’s monstrous ego, vanity and insecurity are tested by the enthusiastic amateur thespians – who are not averse to a spot of ego, vanity and insecurity themselves. As acting worlds collide and Jefferson’s career implodes, he discovers some truths about himself and his relationships with other people… along with his inner Lear!
21st – 24th November 2018, Little Gaddesden Village Hall, Dangerous Corner by J B Priestley
Dangerous Corner was Priestley’s first play and is set in the 1930s. Robert and Freda Caplan are entertaining close friends/colleagues at their country house.
A chance remark by one of the guests sparks the demand for the truth by Robert, with devastating consequences as clandestine relationships and secrets are then uncovered.
Bookings are now being taken, click here for more information and to book your seat/table for the performance and pre-theatre dinner at the Bridgewater Arms.
