September

It's hard to think of a better way of celebrating and showing off our recently renovated and re-energised theatre than with a production of one of the finest plays of the 20th Century - and so we have Sam Harris's production of Arthur Miller's masterpiece "The Crucible" to open our new season and show off our new-look theatre.

For this production, Sam has assembled a much larger cast than we have seen for any "straight" play in recent years - and it's a really starry one - Dan and Jo Gough, Craig Shelton, Susi Walker, Sandy Robertson, Rosie Gowers .. the list goes on and on..

"The Crucible" will open with a special Gala Night on Saturday 30th September at 7.30 p.m. and prior to this performance a free wine (or non-alcoholic equivalent) will be on offer to all ticket holders.

The next dramatic event will be that rare and lovesome thing ... a live play in the Studio.

Continuing the theme of witchcraft and things that go bump in the night, Kathy Buckingham will make her directing debut at the Talisman with "Fates Thread" a haunting (ouch) and quirky short play for 6 actors. The date for your diaries is Saturday 21st October and the performance will start at 8 p.m. Admission is 3.00.

Our November production of "Ladies in Lavender" is about to go into rehearsal as I write and the final casting tweaks are being tweaked for "Cinderella".

We are experiencing some difficulties securing the performing rights for a suitable play next April - which the sharp-eyed amongst you will have noticed is the only gap in our calendar for next year. We are very close to a solution now - and I should be able to announce the play selected, in the next Talismag, or on the website before that.

How lovely to be back in business - with such a productive and bustling Autumn to look forward to, too.

Chris.
