The club holds monthly play readings on the first Wednesday of each month (see News and ECCO pages). This acts both as a way of introducing new plays to the members, of providing a club activity for members not currently actively involved in a production, and also as a social event for club members. The evenings are held at members houses, and the only requirement to take part is to turn up with enthusiasm (and a small contribution to the refreshments).
- The next play reading will be on Wed 8th May at Barbara’s.
* The change of date is due to the Bank Holiday on 1st May . *
Janet Middleton will be leading the reading of People by Alan Bennett.
“People, written by one of the UK’s most loved playwrights Alan Bennett, has been described in the Independent as “outrageously funny and provocative”. The caustic farce centres on the plight of a stately pile. Peer and ex fashion model Dorothy, lives there with her companion, Iris, and is reluctant to open it to the public. Meanwhile, her sister June is on the verge of striking a deal with the National Trust. A third fate for the house appears on the horizon, though, when a film company turns up to use the site as a location for a porn movie.”
Please ring Mary for further information and to let her know if you are going to come along or email email@example.com. (If ringing you are most likely to catch Mary between 8-10, am or pm).
- June’s play reading will take place on 5th June Chez Mary. Play TBA.
