WEEK COMMENCING MONDAY 17TH NOVEMBER – FEMALE OF THE SPECIES BY JOANNA MURRAY SMITH - DIRECTED BY PAULETTE ANDERSONOur Autumn production which opens on Monday 17th November is a 6-hander written by Joanna Murray Smith. Paulette Anderson is already rehearsing her three men and three ladies to act in this humourous yet unnerving production. The theme of the play involves an established author trying to write a new blockbuster but suffering from writer's block. She is surprised at her desk in her country retreat by several unexpected guests who divert her attention from the task in hand. That's all I'll say for the time being, except that a cow comes to have some relevance to the plot! Tickets are not yet available, but we'll let you know in good time !
