Auditions for Ghost Train - Wednesday 26th July

These will be held at Manor Gardens. See summary of characters.

Ghost Train - the autumn production

Our autumn production this year will be ‘Ghost Train’ written by Arnold Ridley (whom you may remember from the television series ‘Dads Army’ in which he played the white-haired old man with the dodgy bladder).   The performances will take place from 25 to 28 October in The Red House.   The play (which is a sort of tongue-in-cheek melodrama set in a remote Cornish railway station on a dark & dirty night) has parts for 4 women and up to 8 men.   The cast includes 5 roles for characters in their 20s.   The play will be directed by Nina Jarram.

In order to whet our appetites in advance of the auditions, a play-reading of ‘Ghost Train’ took place on Friday 7 July. Now keenly looking forward to the production.

Play reading on Friday 23rd June 2017 - The Hound of the Baskervilles

This play reading took place on Friday 23rd June 2017 at 7.30 at Manor Gardens.

The play is ‘The Hound Of The Baskervilles’ by Tim Kelly (adapted and dramatised from Arthur Conan Doyle’s original story).   There are parts for 5 men and 5 women (but, disappointingly, no dogs !).   A brief synopsis of the play follows:

Sherlock Holmes's most spine chilling mystery is placed in a modern setting in this version with suspense, humour and terror. Sir Henry is heir to the vast Baskerville fortune, a legacy that comes with a family curse: death at the fangs of a horror that prowls the moor. Only Holmes can stop the beast. While mysterious lights signal Baskerville Hall and the hound terrifies the countryside, the sleuthing begins and suspicion falls on sinister servants, butterfly collectors, ladies in distress and escaped convicts. Who wrote the letter that summoned the hound? Is Sir Henry's romance with the lovely Kathy doomed? Is the supernatural at work?

It was much enjoyed by all who attended.
