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.

The club serves as a metaphor for ominous political developments in late Weimar Germany.
