Next play reading on Friday 20th April at 7.30 Cheshire Cats
The next play reading is the modern comedy "Cheshire Cats" by Gail Young, at 7.30pm on Wednesday 4th April at Manor Gardens.
At the centre of the play are five women, all taking part in the London Moonwalk, and as the story unfolds we learn about the personal motives which inspire them. In monologues, all delivered with both comedy and pathos, each establishes her personality and her aspirations........The key to the action is not simply their characters, but the interaction between them. .....up to the final, poignant soliloquy - to focus us all on the purpose of the play. ........
All are very welcome, members or non-members, to take part or listen. There will be an interval for refreshments.
Play reading on Wednesday 4th April at 7.30pm

Play reading on 13th March at 7.30
Many thanks to all those attended this play reading of the Arms and the Man, a comedy by George Bernard Shaw, and also thanks to Sue Parker for leading it.
The play was first produced on 21 April 1894 at the Avenue Theatre in the West End and published in 1898. Arms and the Man was one of Shaw's first commercial successes. He was called onto stage after the curtain, where he received enthusiastic applause. Amidst the cheers, one audience member booed. Shaw replied, in characteristic fashion, "My dear fellow, I quite agree with you, but what are we two against so many?"

Thank you to all that attended. The meeting saw the Tamaritans become a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) with the first part of the AGM held under the old arrangements until the CIO approved. Then the first meeting as a CIO. Congratulations to Noel Preston-Jones who takes over as Chairman after Catherine Teague ended her successful and eventful 3 year stint.
