About Play In A Week

Play In A Week is the Nomads annual week-long project for people with a range of physical and/or learning disabilities.
It enables actors with learning and/or physical disability to enjoy the magic and benefits of participating in a show and putting on 2 public performances every summer in our fully equipped and accessible modern theatre.

To achieve this, a cast of around 50 performers are backed by over 60 volunteers and specialist professionals. A special play is commissioned each year with a unique part to suit every individual wanting to participate.

New songs and music are composed, and dances choreographed to fit the script. Personal achievements since 1999 are both inspiring and humbling. Accessing performing arts and being part of this very special company has amazing benefits for our participants and volunteers, as well as providing great entertainment for our audiences!

Funding for this project comes primarily from donations and fundraising events which run throughout the year.

The Nomads present a dramatic comedy piece, Shakers, in the studio. Set in a cocktail bar c. 1985, we meet Carol, Adele, Nicky and Mel, four friends who have taken to waitressing in desperation but who also have wit and resilience enough to never let any of the colorful characters they come across shake them up!

Shakers cocktail bar is THE place to be! After work, before a club, to meet the blokes, to pick up the girls, to drink to celebrate or drown your sorrows, for birthdays and parties and romance and sin, this is the place to be seen. The all-female cast introduce us to complex women from all walks of life with a fascinating insight into their challenges and social commentary.

For this performance, you’ll also find some fun additions to your visit which will heighten the experience… for example, you can order one of our limited edition cocktails in the bar of The Bob King room, our brand new building (formerly The Greenroom)!

Director:

Michael Ayres, Artistic Director for The Nomads, is a well-known face in the amateur dramatics circles of Surrey. Most recently appearing as the dame, Sarah The Cook in Dick Whittington, he’s enjoying the first of two productions he’ll be directing here in 2018.
