Spring - Lady Glanville's Fritillery
Our Spring production is a new play by WCP's Tim Boden. Starting life three years ago as a very successful festival production of the same name, this full length development retains the mix of comedy, pathos with a touch of supernatural much admired in the original.
Festival - The Dumb Waiter
This year's festival entry is Harold Pinter's The Dumb Waiter, a truly classic piece of theatre. 1960: two men in a basement in Birmingham, the lavatory doesn't flush and there's no tea, and now someone wants an Ormitha Macarounada. As the tension mounts, can things get any worse...?
With Chris Shinn as Gus, and Martin George as Ben, this promises to be an entertaining and engrossing 40 minutes. The Dumb Waiter is on at Sawston Drama Festival on Thursday 23rd March and Cambridge on Tuesday 25th April - please do come and give us your support!

Panto - Sleeping Beauty
Well as Dame Dotty goes off with the Court Jester to train as DD7, Valiant and Aurora head off into happily married bliss, and Spaldrick starts work cleaning the pidgeon loft for Lightning the Royal Carrier Pidgeon (sadly a rather wooden performance), we bid farewell to Ballysilly and another very successful panto. Excellent audiences cheered, booed, groaned and generally joined in in all the right places (including Making Their Minds Up!), and a jolly good time was had by all! Below, some pictures from the Dress Rehearsal - for the full set see here.
