“Cheshire Cats” follows the antics of a group of friends as they aim to stride across the capital in record time in their decorated bras and posh new trainers, but the problem is that one of the team doesn’t seem to meet the physical criteria!

This London Moonwalk adventure is a cross between a girl’s night out and a real mission to support a cause so close to many hearts, with plenty of laughs and a few tears along the way. “Cheshire Cats is a truly comic homage to walkers, marshals and organisers of charity walks everywhere.

Living Together

Living Together by Alan Ayckbourn

14-18th September 2021 at 7:30 pm

Tickets: adults £14, students £10.

Directed by Danny Sparkes

Living Together is the middle play of the ‘Norman Conquests’ by Alan Ayckbourn. Fortunately, each play can be performed independently, although the action takes place over one weekend among the same group of related people.

A common factor is Norman’s inadequate attempts to ‘seduce’ his sister-in-law and brother-in-law’s wife, whilst keeping his own wife happy! This is a comedy that shows just what happens when families misunderstand what is happening under their noses!! The common theme is Norman’s assertion – “but I love you!”

Sisters Anya and Sonia are goaded into remembering things they’d rather forget, upon discovering an empty coffin in Anya’s lodgings.

This production of Two Sisters is an amateur production by arrangement with Stagescripts Ltd.

Dead Man Quotes by Daniel Shepherd

Directed by Daniel Shepherd

Daniel saw this play write itself in a pile of old takeaway menus and unpaid bills. How would you describe a person’s life, a stranger’s, when all you saw of them was their preference for fast food and the cost of heating? Dead Man Quotes is a dark comedy, exploring who we are and what we leave behind; whether it’s razz mags, menus or broken gnomes.

The Chalk Garden by Enid Bagnold

The Chalk Garden

By Enid Bagnold

Directed by Murray Stephens

Tuesday 13th to Saturday 17th November at 7.45pm in the studio

Tickets: adults £12, children/students £10

A troubled teenage girl lives with her eccentric grandmother, Mrs. St. Maugham, in a big house in Sussex, with a Chalk Garden. When a new governess is hired, partly to keep Laurel’s mother from taking her back, the brittle calm of the household is shaken. Miss Madrigal has no past, and no references; but when Mrs. St Maugham’s old friend the Judge comes to lunch, secrets are revealed and illusions destroyed.

Enid Bagnold’s 1955 play deals with issues that are as relevant now as they were in the 50’s, renewing and rebuilding lives, and above all the need for love, and the need to move on.

It was first performed on Broadway, in 1955. It opened in London in 1956 with Edith Evans and Peggy Ashcroft, and was the most successful play that year, eclipsing both “Look Back in Anger” and “The Deep Blue Sea”. It won numerous awards in Britain and on Broadway, including rave reviews from Kenneth Tynan. It has been revived regularly. There was a run at the Donmar Theatre in 2008, with Margaret Tyzack (her last play) Penelope Wilton and Felicity Jones in her breakthrough role, and it is running at Chichester this year with Penelope Keith. It was also filmed in 1964 starring Edith
Evans, Deborah Carr, Hayley Mills and John Mills.
