Spring - Hello, Is There Any Body There?

Our Spring Production is the farce Hello, Is There Any Body There? by Ian Hornby, a murder mystery - but not as we know it - which steadfastly refuses to take itself (or anything else) seriously. For more on this crazy and hilarious comedy see here.



WCP's Drama Festival entry this year is The Hiram J Haffenbacker Show, a brand new play by Davis Morris, a satire on the mid-morning chat shows beloved of both British and American TV channels - only without the budgets, the restrained hosts or the witty and sophisticated guests. See here for more details.

We also have a second entry this year, as part of exciting developments under way. This is also an original play, The Lost Archer by Tim Boden, a light and dark comedy which challenges the preconceptions of an Actor's life. See here for more details.


Autumn - Snails for Starters

Following the group's tradition of supporting new writing, the November production will premiere a brand new comedy by Kattreya Scheurer-Smith. More details to follow!

Panto - Aladdin

Aladdin and Princess Jasmine are now happily married, the Genie of the Ring and the Genie of the Lamp are enjoying new found freedom, and Evil Abanazar is bottled up in the lamp for all eternity (or is he...?), as the panto ends having seen excellent houses and lots of cheering and booing (or yes it did!). Below, some photos of the production - for the full set see here.
