What’s On

Welcome to The Fellowship Players!

The Fellowship Players have been providing live theatre in Walsall since 1947. We usually perform four plays a year at the Grange Playhouse, Broadway North, Walsall.

SEASON 74 STARTS 2022!!!!!

Now that UK COVID19 restrictions have relaxed (for the time being!) and the theatre has finally reopened our new season will be a shorter; condensed season of three productions, two which were held over from Season 73. Here are details of these productions:

3rd – 12th February 2022

‘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.

7th – 16th April 2022

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 St. John Quartermaine’s last. The play follows the relationships between seven teachers at the school and, more particularly, the relationships between St. John Quartermaine and his colleagues.

DEAD CERTAIN

When an unemployed actor is given the tempting offer to stage a reading of a new play by an author in her country home, he jumps at the chance. Elizabeth, an ex-dancer and once keen theatregoer before an accident confined her to a wheelchair, has written the psychological thriller but it soon becomes apparent that her play has a curious similarity to real life…
