2017 – 2018 Season

Fur Coat and No Knickers by Mike Harding     Comedy  

This hilarious play concerns the wedding of Deirdre and Mark. The fun begins on the stag night when an inebriated Mark is chained to a lamppost with a blow-up rubber doll. The wedding itself is quite high spirited too with half the guests, including the priest, suffering blinding hangovers. The play ends in comic chaos when Father Molloy, paralytically drunk, stumbles into the reception clad only in his underwear, brandishing the blow-up doll!

 

Spider’s Web by Agatha Christie      Comedy Thriller

Clarissa, wife of a diplomat, is adept at spinning tales of adventure but when a murder takes place in her drawing room, she finds live drama much harder to cope with. Desperate to dispose of the body before her husband arrives with an important politician, she enlists the help of her guests. Hilarity ensues when they are interrupted by the arrival of wry detective, Inspector Lord.

A conscious parody of the detective thriller, Christie delivers a unique blend of suspense and humour. There is tension and laughter in equal parts in an intricate plot of murder, police, drug addicts, invisible ink, hidden doorways and secret drawers.

 

Little Voice  by Jim Cartwright       Drama with music

The play tells the story of a shy, reclusive girl named Little Voice and her larger than life, out of control mother Mari.
