What’s On – This Season

Welcome to The Fellowship Players!

The Fellowship Players have been providing live theatre in Walsall since 1947 and have recently celebrated our 70th season. We usually perform four plays a year at the Grange Playhouse, Broadway North, Walsall.

UPCOMING PRODUCTIONS:

Here are details of the four productions we will be bringing you this season

OCTOBER 2019

This new adaptation of the play that inspired several movies including ‘The Shop around the Corner’ starring Margaret Sullivan and James Stewart, is a warm and gentle comedy that follows the tangled tale of the Parfumerie employees.

George is in love, the only problem is he has never met his secret love as they correspond by letter. Just days before he is due to meet his secret correspondent. George’s boss Mr Hammerschmidt fires him with no apparent reason why. For the Parfumerie, only the truth can lead to a happy resolution in this old-fashioned, romantic Christmas tale.

FEBRUARY 2020

When a house party gathers at Gull’s Point, the seaside home of Lady Tressilian, Neville Strange finds himself caught between his old wife Audrey and his new flame Kay.

A nail-biting thriller, the play probes the psychology of jealousy in the shadow of a savage and brutal murder.

A carefully unpeeled investigation before our eyes brings the story to a pointed ending.

APRIL 2020

At the Cull-Loomis School of English, English is spoken and English is taught to foreigners who are eager to learn. But in the staffroom there is confusion and farce as no-ones seems to be able to speak the language at all.

The comedy is rich, though it is no laughing matter that every term may be Quartermaine’s last. The play follows the relationships between seven teachers at the school and, more particularly, the relationships between Quartermaine and his colleagues.

THE FELLOWSHIP PLAYERS PRESENT:

Quartermaine’s Terms
by Simon Gray.

JUNE 2020

‘Love Is All Around’ is a feminist publishing house where Harriet Copeland is running a competition to find new romantic fiction; their motto is ‘For Women By Women’. To avoid this gender bias, Leonard Loftus is forced to submit his novel under a female pseudonym. So when Myrtle Banbury wins the first prize, Leonard begins to have a major problem. He is a bashful statistician lumbered with a spectacular alter ago. With domestic complications from his wayward daughter Dee Dee and Gus, his rascally old father, Leonard tries frantically to keep up the charade of Myrtle. His problems are made worse when he falls hopelessly in love with Harriet. He is a worried man in the guise of a carefree woman. The happy ending is not going to be easy.

In high heels and lipstick our hero is caught in a hilarious dilemma of cross-dressing and cross-purposes. It has the fertile tradition of Some Like It Hot, Tootsie, and Mrs. Doubtfire and has been widely acclaimed as a classic feel good romantic comedy This is a play that offers belly laughs galore – four irresistibly loveable characters locked into a hilarious plot.
