Our members present a varied programme of productions throughout the year, including one for the Arundel Festival, all in the unique Priory Playhouse.
For those of you who prefer to come and watch, bring your friends and enjoy, in comfort, the special atmosphere of our intimate little theatre.
The upholstered seats are tiered to give a perfect view from every part of the house. The theatre is centrally heated, fully carpeted and there is even a licensed bar for your interval drink or coffee.

Acting members will appreciate being able to rehearse on our own stage, having a well-equipped dressing room and excellent technical department.

OUR NEXT PRODUCTIONS
A WOMAN OF NO IMPORTANCE - A VISIT FROM MISS PROTHERO - SOLDIERING ON
By Alan Bennett
Directed by MARGARET MASON
5th - 10th June 2017
The first is the story of Peggy, who, when a mystery illness strikes, simply changes her comfortable niche at work, for the role of Queen Bee in hospital. Persistently cheerful, blind to the feelings of others, and, at heart, terribly lonely, Peggy is both a moving and comic creation from the pen of a master. In the second, Mr Dodsworth is settling satisfactorily into retirement, when an unwelcome visit from his colleague, Miss Prothero, leaves him unsettled and anxious. Again, Bennett's sure touch, gives us characters who are both touching and funny. In the third, Muriel's husband Ralph has just died, leaving her rather well off - until, that is, her son Giles gets his hands on the money and Muriel comes out the loser. Eventually, neglected by Giles and no longer needed by her disturbed daughter Margaret - whose state may well have been caused by Ralph himself - Muriel ends the play alone and poor.

19th - 26th August 2017
Chess is used as a metaphor for romantic rivalries and the US-Soviet rivalry during the Cold War. The main characters form a love triangle: the ill-mannered American Grandmaster, the intense Russian champion who plans on defecting to the West, and the Hungarian born female chess second, who arrives at the international championships with the American but falls in love with the Russian. From Bangkok to Budapest, the players, lovers, politicians and spies all struggle to get the upper hand.
