London Suite – Newbury Dramatic Society

Thursday 5 July  8:00pm      The Croft Hall

A Hyde Park hotel suite provides the fashionable setting for four individual short plays, each with a different tone. As London Suite veers from thriller to farce we meet an array of different characters, including a novelist holding his accountant at gunpoint, a rich widow on a rather odd date, a talk show host being reunited with her ex, and “the man on the floor”.
Sharp, witty dialogue and sympathetic characters make London Suite an unmissable production.

Directed by Ian Martin. This amateur production of London Suite is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH LTD.

£10.00
Tickets available online with no additional booking fee. You can also order your pre-show supper here (£8.50).
Tickets also available from the Box Office (Newbury Building Society, Hungerford) and by telephone (01488683667)

The Hysterical Historical Show

Friday 6 July  8:00pm      The Croft Hall

Cult theatre company and comedy duo LipService return to their stand-up roots in the Hysterical Historical Show a wacky whirlwind tour of Britain’s female national treasures.

Meet notorious gossip Mrs Gaskell and her timid friend Charlotte Bronte, learn about Marie Stopes and her little known friendship with Scott of the Antarctic, stage a protest with the ever radical Pankhursts, meet Georgian housekeeper and inventor of cuppa soup Elizabeth Raffald, Annie Horniman, creator of the modern repertory theatre, and many more. Nothing is sacred. But we hope you have been paying attention because there will be a quiz, not a very serious one, with points and points mean prizes.

Part sketch show, part pub quiz this show has all the ingredients of a fun night out.

Tickets also available from the Box Office (Newbury Building Society, Hungerford) and by telephone (01488683667)
