    THE LATE EDWINA BLACK

    THE LATE EDWINA BLACK

    By William Dinner & William Morum
    Directed by BRENDA MERRIOTT

    28th October - 2nd November 2019

    Edwina, a rich woman, is dead! She was married to Gregory Black, a school teacher. Her doctor is not happy to sign the death certificate - questions are being asked; suspicion aroused. Who is responsible for Edwina’s death? Could it be Gregory, who married her for her money? Or Lisa, Edwina’s companion, who is in love with Gregory? Or Helen, the housekeeper, who is a beneficiary?

    NEVILLE’S ISLAND

    By Tim Firth
    Directed by GILL LAMBOURN

    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?

    TIME OF MY LIFE

    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.
