Who We Are
We’re a young, professional Theatre Company from Leatherhead, Surrey (just off Jct9 on the M25).
We serve the local area with revivals of popular, entertaining and thought-provoking theatre!
If you love professional theatre, bitter-sweet comedy, good writing, recognisable characters, wit and fun – then you’ll really enjoy our
Alan Bennett season of one-act plays, between Monday 23rd and Saturday 28th October
in the Nomad Theatre, East Horsley, Surrey and also at the Minghella Theatre, Quay Arts Centre, Newport IoW from November 3rd to the 5th. You’ll have a great evening!
We use local talent back-stage and on-stage and we’re bringing back into the community an opportunity for audiences to enjoy seasonal repertory-style, affordable theatre productions, close to home.
Come and see our exciting shows!
Where We Are
We’re coming to the Nomad Theatre in East Horsley, which is a great 120-seat, comfortable, fully-equipped Theatre with fly-tower, revolving stage and 2 trap doors!
We are reviving regular seasonal theatre productions in the North Surrey/Surrey Hills area because we passionately want to see a regular, rep-style company once again entertaining local audiences, at affordable prices, in a proper local Theatre!
Our productions are always ambitious, popular , entertaining and often thought-provoking.
We are planning to present major shows on schools’ English and Drama curricula – and we’ll be running Technical Skills Workshops for young people in association with Theatrical Youth Training (TYT).
In association with the Nomad Theatre, we’re reviving classic and culturally significant plays – as well as fun, poignant and diverting entertainments.
Our Next Show
A double-bill of
Two short comedies by the famed writer Alan Bennett
[Talking Heads, Forty Years On, The Lady In The Van, The Madness of George III]
in the Nomad Theatre, Bishopsmead Parade, East Horsley, Surrey KT24 6RT
and The Minghella Theatre, Quay Arts, Sea Street, Newport IoW PO30 5BD
Doreen and Doris work (or perhaps idle) in Precepts and Invoices, an obscure business department in a large organisation. A flurry of requisition forms signals this is not a normal day: economic storm clouds are gathering, and someone has their eye on them. A shadow is falling across their tranquil lives. Are they about to be fired? A rare chance to enjoy this Alan Bennett gem!
SAY SOMETHING HAPPENED
Arthur and Elizabeth Rhodes, married and in their 60s, receive an unexpected visit from Social Services in the form of eager, but inexperienced, June Potter; she needs to register at-risk elderly people. Able-bodied Mam and Dad have no intention of being listed. June resorts to her notes on Conducting Interviews and no-nonsense Mam sorts her out! Another comedy nugget to make you laugh out loud on an autumn evening.
