2000: Spring - Relationships
April 2000 - Relationships

We often choose to put on three one-act plays in April for a number of reasons. Firstly, everyone in the company is involved, whether on stage, behind the scenes or working front of house. Secondly, new directors have a chance to try out the skills they have been learning over the years, without the responsibility for the whole evening. Lastly, we can perform our festival entry to our regular audience as well.

This April we performed 3 plays

The Drag Factor by Frank Vickery
Directed by Marilyn Dunbar.

Set in a hospital waiting room, a couple have to come to terms with their son's choices in life.

The Train by Carl Slotboom

Ritual for Dolls by George McEwan Green
