Cheshire Cats is a cross between a girls night out and a real mission to support a cause close to many hearts, with plenty of laughs and a few tears along the way.

A Small Family Murder by Simon Brett
Directed by Julie Petrucci



Featuring Tim Boden and Christine Easterfield, this year's one act drama festival entry is the tale of a family at odds with itself. Following the death of their mother, the two Trevelyan brothers and their father are questioned by the police. But how did old Mrs Trevelyan die and was she helped on her way?

A Bunch of Amateurs by Ian Hislop and Nick Newman
Directed by Julie Petrucci

- The Cast - 4 women, 3 men
Jefferson Steel
Dorothy Nettle
Jessica Steel
Nigel Dewbury
Mary Plunkett
Denis Dobbins
Lauren Bell


A fading Hollywood star has taken on the role of King Lear thinking that the production will be in Stratford upon Avon with the RSC rather than in the tiny village of Nether Stratford with a bunch of amateurs. This situation speaks for itself as an opportunity for much hilarity and Ian Hislop and his co-writer, Nick Newman, do not let us down. Ian Hislop needs no introduction and Nick Newman has written for Spitting Image and The Harry Enfield Show. Originally written as a film with Burt Reynolds as the has-been and chosen as the Royal Film Performance that year, the script was then adapted for the stage. The film is quite amusing but the stage version is much better.
