Following our successful rehearsed play readings over the past couple of years, we are delighted to announce that our next reading will be held at Old Rose Cottage, Cheriton on Saturday 16th June, by kind permission of Mr and Mrs Christopher Gardner.
The reading will comprise two one act plays: The Browning Version, a classic period one act play by Terence Rattigan, directed by Reg Large, and a shorter comedy entitled A Matter of Taste by Cheryl Barrett, directed by David Cradduck.
The performances will take place in the back garden of Old Rose Cottage (opposite Cheriton Village Hall) and we invite you, in the traditional style of open air theatre, to bring along a picnic (gates open at 6pm) and your own rug or chair – but no spikes, please! Numbers will be limited and tickets are on sale now, so get yours before they all get snapped up. This is a one night only event. ‘Curtain up’ will be at 7.30pm prompt and there is no reserved seating. We will provide bins but please take all your own rubbish home with you.
If the weather is inclement, the readings will take place in the village hall, which will also be open in any case for refreshments and toilet facilities.
There will be a licensed bar, with teas/coffees and ice creams on sale but please do bring your own bubbly!
This is a fundraising evening in support of our 2018 charity, Blue Apple Theatre.
