Mr Lomax, by Edward Atkinson

Doris and Doreen are comfortably installed in an obscure department of a large organization. On a normal day they keep busy by flirting with nice Mr Tidmarsh in Appointments or pursuing their feud over a plug with Mr Cunliffe in Personnel. This is not a normal day. Someone has an eye on them and a shadow is falling across their tranquil lives. Are they about to be fired?

"Sure Thing" by David Ives

Directed by Nina Meier-Bradlin

Betty, by Michelle Florin

Bill, by Allen Holland

The Play "Sure Thing" from David Ives examines the endless variations of boy meets girl and the ensuing pick up lines. The central theme throughout the play displays a few varieties of a possible conversation that end with a ringing bell that symbolizes a fresh start and a second chance to make a good impression.

"Last Tango in Little Grimley" by David Tristram

Directed by Caroline Weisskopf and Joy Scherer

Gordon, by David Cox

Bernard, by Eric Collino

Joyce, by Joy Scherer

Margaret, by Zuzana Cox

Membership of the local amateur drama society has dwindled to four. Time for dramatic action. There's only one thing that sells tickets these days - sex. But how will the locals react to the promise of a sizzling sex comedy? All is revealed in this fast-paced comedy of an Am-Dram in trouble.
