WHEN WE ARE MARRIED
By John Priestley
Directed by TONY HUDSON
3rd - 8th April 2017
In the heart of Northern England three respectable couples, married on the same day, at the same church, and by the same vicar 25 years ago, meet to celebrate their blissful matrimony. Or so they think. Their celebrations are cut short by a sudden and shocking revelation that they are not married at all. As the home truths fly like confetti and conjugal rites turn to farcical fights, an evening of sparkling comic, mayhem erupts. With a reporter and his photographer from the local paper due any minute, a missing housekeeper that knows their secret and a doorbell that won’t stop ringing; can the three couples keep a lid on their circumstances?

A WOMAN OF NO IMPORTANCE - A VISIT FROM MISS PROTHERO - SOLDIERING ON
By Alan Bennett
Directed by MARGARET MASON
5th - 10th June 2017
The first is the story of Peggy, who, when a mystery illness strikes, simply changes her comfortable niche at work, for the role of Queen Bee in hospital. Persistently cheerful, blind to the feelings of others, and, at heart, terribly lonely, Peggy is both a moving and comic creation from the pen of a master. In the second, Mr Dodsworth is settling satisfactorily into retirement, when an unwelcome visit from his colleague, Miss Prothero, leaves him unsettled and anxious. Again, Bennett's sure touch, gives us characters who are both touching and funny. In the third, Muriel's husband Ralph has just died, leaving her rather well off - until, that is, her son Giles gets his hands on the money and Muriel comes out the loser. Eventually, neglected by Giles and no longer needed by her disturbed daughter Margaret - whose state may well have been caused by Ralph himself - Muriel ends the play alone and poor.
Our next housekeeping dates are - Saturdays 4th March and 1st April. Please come and help out between 10-12. And please don’t leave it to the usual few - we could do with some more help!
