Matchbox Theatre – November 2019


Matchbox Theatre is a collection of humorous short entertainments by renowned British playwright Michael Frayn, famous for his farce Noises Off, and the dramas Copenhagen and Democracy.

The individual items are loosely connected through the topic of communication, its shortcomings and misunderstandings, talking about, talking to, talking at cross purposes.

The characters may be in a play, in a book, may be you, may be us all! 

Friday 29th November at 8.00pm

Lady Windermere's Fan – May 2019


Friday 17th May, 8.00pm
Saturday 18th May, 7.30pm

Both performances sold out.

As Lord Darlington says to Lady Windermere: ‘I can resist everything except temptation.’ You will not want to resist the temptation of the Spring Grove Fringe production of ‘Lady Windermere’s Fan’.The play is a wonderfully enjoyable comedy, filled with characters who spend most of their time trading witty remarks, but also a subtle social satire, particularly pointed about the hypocrisy of Victorian attitudes to women and sex.Wilde’s greatest achievement may have been in getting his wealthy, well-dressed and fashionable audiences to laugh at themselves – without them realising that they were the butt of the joke. 

An introduction to Lady Windermere's Fan, by Andrew Dickson.
