We are currently in the process of choosing a play for next year and have had fun reading a variety of scripts, including 'And then there were none' by Agatha Christie and 'The Weekend' by Michael Palin.
If you missed our autumn production, then here is a short resume of the story - 'Abandonment' by acclaimed author Kate Atkinson.
'Abandonment' is a play about love, death, identity and evolution from the bestselling and highly acclaimed novelist Kate Atkinson.
Elizabeth, childless and recently separated, just wants to be alone. She's moved into a converted Victorian mansion, alive with history, character, woodworm and rot, where she is constantly invaded by her adoptive mother and sister, her lesbian best friend, an amorous photographer and a New Age builder, all determined to make their mark.
But Elizabeth's arrival has also disturbed the ghosts of the house's past occupants: most specifically, Agnes, an 1860s governess who was seduced by her Darwinian employer, and who is now forced to revisit her long-forgotten past.
