TIME OF MY LIFE
By Alan Ayckbourn
Directed by SIMON WALTERS
20th - 25th January 2020
Gerry Stratton, successful Managing Director of a local building and transport company, has arranged a celebration birthday dinner, for his wife, Laura, at their favourite restaurant - Esse di Calvinu - which might be Greek, or Spanish, or possibly Italian, or even Croatian! They are joined by their elder son Glynn with his wife Stephanie, and by younger son Adam with his latest girlfriend, Maureen. During the course of the party unexpected revelations are made which have serious implications for all concerned.
Time works in a strange way for the family. For Gerry and Laura time is always in the present. For Glynn and Stephanie, time moves on, scene by scene, from the birthday party. For Adam and Maureen, time moves backwards, scene by scene, to their first meeting. Thus, we learn, with Glynn and Stephanie the consequences of the birthday party, and with Adam and Maureen what has led up to the party.

THE LADY KILLERS
By Graham Linehan
Directed by TONY HUDSON
8th – 13th June 2020
The Lady Killers is a classic black comedy based on the Ealing Comedy of the same name. Posing as amateur musicians, Professor Marcus and his gang rent rooms in the lopsided house of sweet but strict Mrs Wilberforce. The villains plot to involve her, unwittingly, in Marcus' brilliantly conceived heist job. The police are left stumped but Mrs Wilberforce becomes wise to their ruse and Marcus concludes that there is only one way to keep the old lady quiet. With only her parrot, General Gordon, to help her, Mrs Wilberforce is alone with five desperate men?And who, ultimately, will be forced to face the music?

30th March - 4th April 2020
It’s quite a challenge managing to become shipwrecked in the Lake District but for the four men experiencing the joys of a corporate team building exercise it proves all too easy and hilariously disastrous. Washed up, soaking wet, ill equipped, with little food and no contact with the outside world our four heroes must be creative, calm, resourceful and above all supportive, to complete the management camping trip challenge! Is this too much to ask of four upwardly mobile middle management men? Tim Firth (Calendar Girls) delivers a sure mix of high comedy and tragedy, where every management decision taken inevitably brings about yet another crisis. Can Neville, Gordon, Angus and Guy win the team competition and boost their promotion chances? Or will two days in the dangerous outback that is the British countryside in November push them over the edge?
