Summer Double Bill

'The Real Inspector Hound'  by Tom Stoppard
directed by Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou

'Black Comedy'  by Peter Schaffer
directed by Lloyd Spencer

Wednesday 20th June - Saturday 23rd June


Rehearsals are going well and preparations for next months double-bill production are fully under way.

There is still plenty of opportunity to get involved in this production and we need you help:

  • Painting & prepping the set in the run up to getting onto the stage.
  • Then, we'll need all hands on deck on Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th June to get the set built on stage.
  • As always, we'll need a strong team working Front of House. This is vital to ensure the show runs smoothly and is an excellent opportunity to get involved while catching-up with other company members.

If you can help in any of these roles (no experience necessary), please get in touch ASAP.

The classic Ealing comedy reimagined for the stage.

A gang of criminal misfits take refuge in the house of kindly Mrs Wilberforce whilst they plan their next big job.

Professor Marcus, the gang's mastermind, has concocted a devilish heist, which Mrs Wilberforce unwittingly becomes a part of. It's the perfect crime; after all who would suspect an innocent old lady of daylight robbery?

After Mrs Wilberforce becomes aware of their deception, it becomes clear that she is intent on going to the police and the gang realises there is only one way they can guarantee she stays silent…

But tying up this loose end soon threatens to unravel all of their best made plans!

From the motion picture screenplay by William Rose
