forthcoming productions...

Our May 2017 open-air production will be
The Merchant of Venice
By William Shakespeare.
At Pipers Corner School,
Great Kingshill
18th - 27th May 2017

Set in 1944, this fast paced production is direct and un-fussy in style. The musical backdrop includes Basie, Glen Miller and Benny Goodman as the G.I.s sweep into Venice and Shylock emerges from the rubble of war and the last Venetian Jews are taken from the ghetto. We present the play faithfully; the setting and time within the Holocaust giving added poignancy to the inherent anti-semitism within the play
It is, after all, a 'comedie'; with a well-structured 'happy ending' to the love stories that are intertwined with the story of Shylock's demise. There are laughs along the way, and we find them. The serious themes speak for themselves in this unique production.

Our October 2017 production will be...
By Peter Shaffer .
At The Lancaster Theatre,
Wycombe Abbey School
26th - 28th October 2017 at 7:45pm

Dr. Martin Dysart, a dissatisfied and disaffected psychiatrist, is faced with a unique case when a young man, Alan Strang, is brought to him for treatment. Alan, a passionate and obsessive horse lover, has blinded six horses, to the horror and surprise of his family. In his efforts to coax Alan out of his shell and treat him, Dr. Dysart begins to unravel the complex psychological puzzle of Alan's obsessions. Underneath Alan's complacent manner, Dr. Dysart discovers a fervent, passionate, almost religious power that has both the power to destroy Alan, and perhaps, to save the doctor himself. English playwright Sir Peter Shaffer's international hit is a dazzling, complex, and thrilling look at passion, sex, religion, and sanity.
