Next Production - High Notes

High Notes 

A supper evening with two comedies. 

 

Press Cuttings, by George Bernard Shaw

Put Major Barbara and Saint Joan out of your mind! This comedy, set in 1911, has a pompous Field Marshall, worried about terrorism, a male Prime Minister who dresses as a suffragette, Mrs Banger and Lady Corinthia, two gun-toting anti-suffragettes, amongst others. Surprisingly, this all has a happy ending!

 

Il Fornicazione, by Michael Green

Like all his marvellous 'Coarse Acting' one act plays, this spoof of an opera is outrageous. As explained by the conductor, all but one of the orchestra were involved in a coach accident, so the entire opera must be performed accompanied only by a triangle. 

 

Friday November 25th 2016, 8.00pm

Saturday November 26th 2016, 7.30pm

 

Tickets: £17.50, including supper. Licensed bar.

The Beaux’ Stratagem (Lust and Looting in Lichfield!)

The Beaux' Stratagem

A Restoration romp – with wealthy widows, buxom barmaids, sullen spouses, dissolute dandies, shady chaplains, hustling highwaymen (and women), louche landlords, colourful costumes, wonderful wigs!

 

The Beaux’ Stratagem, by George Farquhar.

Two One Act Plays

Two One Act Plays 

Last Tango in Little Grimley, by David Tristram.

 

Will rumours of sex and sinning in the final production of The Little Grimley amateur dramatic company be enough to capture the attention of our audience and end on a professional high? Will it be enough to fill the seats for yet another nice ‘little farce’? The chairperson has a cunning plan and it could all get very messy.

 

Young Souls, by Sally Brockway.

 

Young Souls is set in the Belleview Retirement Home. 

Three of the residents, Beryl, Gerald and Margery agree to take part in a trial of a new drug called 'Animus' with unexpected consequences for them and for Matt, the young care assistant.

 

Friday October 2 2015, 8.00pm
