Dates for your diary please and read below for full details:
“A Christmas Carol” adapted by Patrick Barlow at the Hepworth Playhouse Walton – week of the 5th December 2022 to be directed by Steve Clunn.
Wednesday 8th June at the Club (in the Club, Committee Room or possibly outside – weather permitting.
Last week we had our first play reading evening. A small, but select, quality group of us met with nibbles supplied (thank you Elaine) to read Deadwood. This is a take-off, a pastiche if you will, of Under Milkwood. It is a very funny play and all present had a good time and lots of laughs, reading it. We missed those of you that couldn’t be with us, Thanks for coming along to those who did attend.
Our next evening will be on June 8th, so, please, pop that date in your diary now. We will be in the clubhouse or possibly, outside if the summer is kind to us. We are looking at plays at present and a front runner is a great play by Ian Hislop about a fading American film star who thinks he is going to appear at Stratford in King Lear. Only problem is, is its the other Stratford and its an amateur group (obviously not as good as us!) who make up the rest of the cast. Should be fun. Do let us know if you have other thoughts for the evening but we thought a comedy would do us all good at this time.
Watch this space for further updates on our anticipated, next productions and I’ll send out a reminder for the play reading on the 8th June, nearer the time. We are also looking at one further summer entertainment, perhaps a meal out or a BBQ. Let me know what you think.
In the meantime, sending all warm wishes.
