Plays and Pinot: SUMMER SEASON PLAYS ANNOUNCED!

Since initially launching our online playreading group (at the start of lockdown), it has gone from strength to strength. So much so that we’re now running multiple sessions throughout the week!

We will release the various plays, dates and times each quarter so participants can block their diaries in advance!

The Summer Season (incorporating May, June and July) is below.

Mrs Warren’s Profession
Monday Afternoons (1.30pm to 2.15pm)
Mon 10 May to Mon 31 May
Written by George Bernard Shaw in 1893 and first performed in London in 1902, Mrs. Warren’s Profession is about a former prostitute, now a madam, who attempts to come to terms with her disapproving daughter. For more info about this play, CLICK HERE

A Chorus of Disapproval
Thursday Evenings (7.30pm to 8.20pm)
Thurs 3 June to Thurs 24 June
A diffident widower attempts to escape loneliness by joining the local amateur light operatic society. By accident rather than by design (in fact, by not saying “no” to anything be it a request to obtain confidential information from his company or an offer of illicit sex) he advances from a small part to the lead.

Bedroom Farce
Monday Afternoons (1.30pm to 2.15pm)
Mon 5 July to Mon 26 July
Trevor and Susannah, whose marriage is on the rocks, inflict their miseries on their nearest and dearest: three couples whose own relationships are tenuous at best. Taking place sequentially in the three beleaguered couples’ bedrooms during one endless Saturday night of co-dependence and dysfunction, beds, tempers, and domestic order are ruffled, leading all the players to a hilariously touching epiphany.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream
Thursday Evenings (7.30pm to 8.20pm)
Thurs 8 July to Thurs 29 July
This popular Shakespearean comedy needs no real introduction! The play is set in Athens, and consists of several subplots that revolve around the marriage of Theseus and Hippolyta. One subplot involves a conflict between four Athenian lovers. Another follows a group of six amateur actors rehearsing the play which they are to perform before the wedding. Both groups find themselves in a forest inhabited by fairies who manipulate the humans and are engaged in their own domestic intrigue. For more info about this play, CLICK HERE
