List of productions 1980-1984

Sadly, we don’t have enough photographs to dedicate single pages to most of these productions, so we present a full list covering the years 1980-1984 on one page.


by George Bernard Shaw

“Pygmalion both delighted and scandalized its first audiences in 1914. A brilliantly witty reworking of the classical tale of the sculptor Pygmalion, who falls in love with his perfect female statue, it is also a barbed attack on the British class system and a statement of Shaw’s feminist views. In Shaw’s hands, the phoneticist Henry Higgins is the Pygmalion figure who believes he can transform Eliza Doolittle, a cockney flower girl, into a duchess at ease in polite society. The one thing he overlooks is that his ‘creation’ has a mind of her own.”

‘Spiders Web’
By Agatha Christie

“Clarissa, the second wife of Henry Hailsham Brown, is adept at spinning tales of adventure for their bored diplomatic circle. When a murder takes place in her drawing room she finds live drama much harder to cope with, especially as she suspects the murderer might be her young stepdaughter Pippa. Worse still, the victim is the man who broke up Henry’s first marriage! Clarissa’s fast talking places her in some hair raising experiences, as she comes to learn that the facts are much more terrifying than fiction… “

‘Tons of Money’
By Will Evans and Valentine

‘Edwardian Evening: Streuth & A Collier’s Tuesday Tea’

‘Ten Times Table’
By Alan Ayckbourn

“The leading lights of the village have decided to hold a pageant of local history based on a somewhat vague event, “The Massacre of the Pendon Twelve”. But there’s a young left wing teacher on the committee who decides to turn it into a rally for proletarian revolution. Committee meetings become symbolic battlefields for conflicting views – the right wing faction being led by the Chairman’s conservative wife. The event turns into a violent confrontation between the two extremes, with cataclysmic results. Police intervention brings matters to a relatively quiet conclusion, but already another pageant – Romans versus Britons – seems an attractive possibility.”
