What’s On

play readings

Wednesday 23rd May 2018 at 7.45pm, Little Gaddesden Village Hall Committee Room, Alphabetical Order by Michael Frayn

Set in the library of a provincial newspaper where battle is joined between the forces of order and chaos, between arid organization in the person of the new library assistant, Leslie, and humane confusion in the person of Lucy, the much-loved resident librarian. Drawing on his experience as a journalist, Frayn draws his gallery of characters with the hilarious accuracy which can only come from first-hand experience.

Wednesday 20th June 2018 at 7:45pm, Little Gaddesden Village Hall Committee Room, Dangerous Corner by J B Priestley

A tale of sex, secrets and lies.  Set in the 1930s, Robert and Freda Caplan are hosting a dinner party at their country home. A chance remark by one of the guests sparks the demand for the truth by Robert, with devastating consequences.  Dangerous Corner will be our next production which we’ll perform in November.  Attending the play reading is a great way to find out more about the play and the roles involved.
