We plan to continue to run zoom sessions until at least June. Andrew has suggested we get together on Thursday 10 June in his garden for our first club night ‘out’. No meetings over half term as usual. Later in the summer we are planning a barbecue in Brian’s garden on Thursday 8 July, and a picnic and/or a canoe trip in August. Then in September we plan to start rehearsals for two limited audiences Murder Mystery events – this in part to bring the audience and ourselves used to more social interaction. So a slow re-start. We will probably plan for a full Spring production and we can start casting / rehearsals before Christmas.

We are back to reading plays for the fun of it – but if you did not listen to our most recent one – Shooting Shambles, then that is posted for you to listen again. See Events page

The Project Gutenberg e-Book of One-Act Plays by Modern Authors; Editor: Helen Louise Cohen.

This is a collection of one acts, which we have not read,  and some of them are pretty good and would be fun. Please join in so we have enough cast.
