Yes, we’re getting back on the stage!  Our next production is Michael Aitkens’ Waiting for God.  Definitely not to be confused with Beckett’s Waiting for Godot, it is a sharply funny play.

Michael Aitkens originally created Waiting for God as a Sitcom for the BBC. It was very successful and ran for 5 series in the 1990s. However, Aitkens had originally imagined it as a stage play and that finally happened in 2017 when this spin off toured the UK. Asked whether you need to be a fan of the original TV series to enjoy the new play Aitkens replied, “No, it’s totally new. It’s a sort of love story using the same characters in the same location. They’re recognisable, but no, it’ll appeal to anybody – especially if you’ve had to cope with being over 50!”

Join us on 13th, 14th or 15th October 2022 for performances at
Little Gaddesden Village Hall, HP4 1NX. How to find us…
(Doors and licensed bar open 7:15pm; curtain up at 8pm).

radio play

‘WIXIT!’ by Trisha Wood, performed by members of Little Gaddesden Drama Club

WIXIT! is the sixth play in the Extraordinary Women series of short radio plays written by Trisha Wood. In it the ladies of Great Titley Women’s Institute bow to pressure from one of their members and decide to hold a referendum on whether to leave the National organization. To the committee’s surprise there is a yes vote (52-48%) which leaves them with some uncomfortable choices.

Listen now!

For those of you who are not familiar with the earlier plays, you can find them here and for a little more information on the formidable characters that make up the committee of this local WI click here.
