Forthcoming Productions Season 2020/21
We are very much looking forward to welcoming you all back to The Playhouse!
Next season is being planning and discussed and we will publish the dates and productions as soon as we can. Our postponed production of Don't You Want Me? will, no doubt, be one of next season's plays. A much awaited play from the local playwright, Andy Bennison.
In the meantime, I hope that you, our wonderful audience and patrons, are keeping safe and well.

Yes, Prime Minister
by Antony Jay & Jonathan Lynn
The UK is in crisis: debt is spiralling, unemployment is on the rise and the fragile coalition cabinet, led by Prime Minister Jim Hacker, is at breaking point. But salvation may exist in the form of a complex pipeline deal with the oil-rich country of Kumranistan that would entitle the government to a multi-trillion pound loan. When the Kumranistan Foreign Secretary makes a shocking request of Jim's Private Secretary Bernard Woolley, moral considerations collide with the economic future of the nation. But how will Jim and his team: Bernard, Cabinet Secretary Sir Humphrey Appleby, and Special Adviser Claire Sutton, reconcile the two? Political machinations, media manipulation and an appeal for divine intervention ensue.

Don't You Want Me?
by Andy Bennison
In the 1980s, the Craven Street Community Centre Discos were legendary. With the building due for demolition there is one last chance for old friends to meet again after nearly forty years. It’s a night for dancing, drinking, reminiscing and the re-opening of old wounds.
It’s the end of an era, but for some, a beginning.
