Cash on Delivery is a traditional farce, written by Michael Cooney (son of Ray Cooney) and featuring, amongst other unlikely characters, a washing machine with a mind of its own.

A Month of Sundays

March 2016

'A Month of Sundays' is a touching comedy with plenty of laughs – and one or two rather poignant moments too. A really lovely story of human frailty and our ability to use our sense of humour to overcome it.

Hugely popular Oscar Wilde-based comedy costume drama. Third time produced by Cheriton Players, previous productions being 1979 and 1994.

Third Week in August

Our second outdoor production ever, this hugely popular comedy by Peter Gordon, set in a run-down campsite, played to packed audiences in the grounds of The Flower Pots Inn. Meet Neville, the camper you would most definitely NOT want to park your caravan next door to, plus a load of other dysfunctional characters.

The Great Cheriton Variety Show

March 2015

A fundraiser in aid of Cheriton Village Hall, this was a bit of a throw-back to the days of our Old Time Music Halls, and proved to be as popular as ever.

Oh Clarence!

The Champion of Paribanou

January 2007

An unusual Ayckbourn - more of an adventure story than his usual black comedy. Starring lots of teenagers of the time.
