Our reduced season is now over, but here are details of some of the productions we will be bringing you next season, starting in October 2018.

 

UPCOMING PRODUCTIONS: DATE AND VENUE TO BE CONFIRMED

Cheshire Cats
by Gail Young

 

“Grown women, aching feet and heaving bosoms!” Follow the Cheshire Cats team as they speedwalk their way to fundraising success in the London Moonwalk. Hilary, Siobhan, Yvonne, Vicky and Maggie are attempting to walk thirteen miles across the capital in record time in their decorated bras and posh new trainers, but the sixth member of their team doesn’t seem to meet the physical criteria!

Cheshire Cats is a cross between a girls’ night out and a real mission to support a cause close to many hearts, with plenty of laughs and a few tears along the way. It is a tribute to all those who participate in and marshal the Moonwalk and other charity walking events everywhere.

Presented by special arrangement with: SAMUEL FRENCH LTD

The Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen’s Guild Dramatic Society’s Production of “Macbeth”
by David McGillivray and Walter Zerlin Jnr.

Farndale

The Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen’s Guild Amateur Dramatic Society ladies mount yet another assault on the classics with a startlingly original production of “Macbeth” staged to get them to the Welwyn Garden City finals. Things do not go exactly to plan….. Under the carefully mascaraed eye of adjudicator George Peach, all events conspire hilariously against them. No previous knowledge of Shakespeare is needed to realise that the Farndale ladies’ unique interpretation of this tragic play isn’t exactly what the Bard had intended …. there is considerably more (unintentional) comedy for a start. This is Macbeth as you’ve never seen it before!
