2019-20 Productions


Directed by Chris Short and Amelia Hildrew

3rd, 4th and 5th October 2019

The Western Studio

Based on the novel by Mary Shelley that inspired a whole genre of fiction, Frankenstein, adapted by Nick Dear, presents this gothic story from a new perspective. The Creature takes centre-stage in this re-telling and questions the nature of man, freedom and the capabilities of artificial life. Bloody, emotional and dramatic, this is not a show to miss...

Time and the Conways

Directed by Max Gilliham and Nathan Trochet

22nd and 23rd November 2019

The Edge Theatre

Time and the Conways is a classic British play written by J. B. Priestley. Set at first in 1919, and then jumping to 1937 (and then back again!), the play explores the lives of a rich family from Yorkshire and how life was in England between the wars. A tragedy, romance and a philosophical examination of time, this play is sure to be one fascinating experience!

An Apple's Kiss

Written by Holly Hinks and Siân Bass

Directed by Holly Hinks, Alex Hawkins and Siân Bass

12th, 13th and 14th December

The Edge Theatre

When an amateur theatre group adapt a classic tale in attempt to make it different it can go one of two ways. Become a hit or go horribly wrong. And for this theatre society it quickly became a train wreck. This disastrous attempt at ‘Snow White and the 7 Dwarves’ is sure to leave you in stitches. What could possibly go wrong?

All My Sons

Directed by Marta san Basilio and Roya Gharbi

27th, 28th and 29th February

The Mission Theatre

Set in an American town in 1947, Arthur Miller’s classic play tells the story of the Kellers, a family tangled in the moral qualms that accompany the American dream. Their eldest son, Larry, has been lost at war for three years– their grief buried deep down with the truths they are not willing to admit but will inevitably burst out. His childhood sweetheart Annie makes a sudden visit just the night his memorial tree is blown down in a storm that is anything but over. Her arrival forces the Kellers to face the past and acknowledge their mistakes, proving almost impossible when they’ve lied so long, they hardly believe the truth themselves. A successful businessman and father of a seemingly perfect family – what price must Joe Keller pay to keep up this façade?

This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Josef Weinberger Limited.
