Hangmen                             14th to 21st March 2020

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is hangmen.jpgI'm just as good as bloody Pierrepoint.

In his small pub in Oldham, Harry is something of a local celebrity. But what's the second-best hangman in England to do on the day they've abolished hanging? Amongst the cub reporters and sycophantic pub regulars, dying to hear Harry's reaction to the news, a peculiar stranger lurks, with a very different motive for his visit.

Don't worry. I may have my quirks but I'm not an animal. Or am I? One for the courts to discuss.

Directed by Dave Eyre

The Play runs from Saturday 14/03/2020 to Saturday 21/03/2020 (excluding Sunday 15/03/2020).

Lighthearted Intercourse        21st to 25th April 2020

Just a year into marriage and with a young baby to care for, Joe is one of three million unemployed looking for work every day - when he’d much rather be spending time with his young wife, Madge. Both have secrets from their past that they are reluctant to share with each other, until an unexpected visitor appears who seems to know exactly what the future holds.

LIGHTHEARTED INTERCOURSE is a tender, funny and intimate portrayal of a young couple living in 1920s Bury, adjusting to married life and discussing their fears, anxieties and conflicting needs.

Directed by Steve Gill

The Play runs from Tuesday 21/04/2020 to Saturday 25/04/2020

Mr Wonderful         16th May to 23rd May 2020

Norma works in a factory and cares for her bedridden mother Phoebe who is on the verges of Alzheimer's. Norma is trying to find her Mr Wonderful through a dating agency. After several attempts she meets Geoff, who seems reputable, and they leave for a weekend away. Phoebe has been left Geoff's mobile; she accesses his messages, discovering his true nature. An unhappy occurrence for Norma frees her to take her lasting revenge. A great comedy with a dark twist.

Directed by Andrea Parle

The Play runs from Saturday 16/05/2020 to Saturday 23/05/2020 (excluding Sunday 17/05/2020).
