Laying the Ghost REHEARSALS

Tuesday and Thursday every week 19:30

Rehearsals at the Playhouse. Pop down, say hello and find out how you can get involved.

Set Building

Most Sundays and Thursdays 10:00

The team are down at the Playhouse most weeks - if you can help with anything from carpentry to a bit of painting or holding a ladder, we will reward you with tea, biscuits and thanks.

Please contact us if you are happy to come along to check we will be there each week.

SOCIAL PLAY READING EVENING - SHE STOOPS TO CONQUER

Saturday 8th July 19:30

We will be holding a social play reading evening of “She Stoops To Conquer” on Saturday, 8 July starting at 7.30pm. Please bring your own drink and nibbles. Do come along for what we hope will be a fun evening. There are several parts so plenty of opportunity for people to take part. A first for us all reading an early period piece (written in 1773) so it should be interesting.

A great opportunity to come down and meet the group if you are interested in joining, and a fun get together for our existing members.

Written By Simon Williams

Directed by Richard Gomm

Margot Buchanan is a witty ex-actress in a retirement home. She is visited by a young actress who is having an affair with Leo, Margot's ex-husband - and by Leo's current wife Judy. Leo arrives but suffers a fatal heart attack. Thus the scene is set for chaotic hilarity as Leo's ghost appears, anxious to sort out matters between his three women, and visible only to Margot's psychic friend Freda!
