Hot Flush!

28 June 2018 - 30 June 2018

by Julie Benson, Music and lyrics by Ollie Ashmore
Take a deep breath and get ready to meet Myra, Sylvia, Helen & Jessica, a quartet of feisty menopausal women who get together at a local bar every Tuesday night. Affectionately named the ‘Hot Flush Club’ the ladies offer each other moral support, cry on one another’s shoulders and of course most importantly, gossip and malign the many men in their lives! Fifteen men in fact, all played by one brave man!

30 August 2018 - 01 September 2018

“Murder in Play” is a play within a play. When Boris Smolensky’s third-rate repertory company decides to produce “Murder at Priorswell Manor” chaos ensues, since the actors are more interested in their own egos than the quality of the production; and life imitates art when Boris’s wife, Renée, is murdered on stage.
