The Talisman Theatre is temporarily closed until the end of our current season in July.

Short audio plays from the Talisman Theatre

Here at the Talisman we want to keep Theatre alive during these difficult times.  So whether you’re relaxing after work or trying to fill your days, we offer the chance to take a little break, sit down with a cuppa (or a glass of something) and enjoy a short audio play.  Each weekend we’ll post a new short play.

A Thought by Max Porter

An interesting short play looking at the idea that  ‘not everything is as it seems’.

A vicar and a nun meet on a bench at a secluded local beauty spot – let’s see what happens next …

Rosemary Gowers directs Alice Scott and Craig Shelton. 

A Pleasure by Max Porter

A gentlemen enjoying the view from a park bench, is joined by a lady on her way home from the shops. They share a coffee and a chat. Just a chance encounter…or is it?

Cast: Bryan Ferriman as Clifford and Susi Walker as Stella, they’re directed by Vicky Whitehill.

Shakespeare Unlocked

Our artistic director Stephen Smith, accompanied by Wendy Smith share two choruses and a soliloquy from Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, Henry V and Hamlet

Kenilworth Kids in Wartime – a series of memories of war-time Kenilworth

To celebrate the 75th anniversary of VE Day the Talisman Theatre offer our own contribution. Peter James, a theatre member, wrote a book recording the childhood memories of ‘Kenilworth Kids’. We offer a few extracts to mark VE day.

Actors: David Charlton, Maggie Brayshaw and Rex Satchwell and youth group members Lauren McCann, Alfie Sully and Alais McCluskey.

A Plan – by Max Porter features Mick Ives as Kenny and Matt Baxter as Charlie who are planning a bank robbery.

Thank you to Smith Scripts for providing the play free of charge, waving the script and performance rights, all they asked was a contribution to the NHS, which we’ve given.
