Happy new year to you. Let’s hope this next one will be more positive than the last one! We plan to continue to run zoom sessions until at least April, then hopefully there will signs we can at last meet up for some social interaction at least! And plan to start rehearsals in September once again.

Current short term plan is to complete our recording of the Murder Mystery we have rehearsed (see Gloria’s separate email about this) and then onto a second play, interspersed with Club Nights. All zoom calls start at 8.00pm, on the usual link below. If you did not have a chance to join recent events over the year, then look at the Events page where links to replays are available of some of our work.
