We'll Always Have Paris

A romantic comedy by Jill Hyem

4 - 7 December 2019

A feel-good play with laughter and tears, the promise of romance, friendship and anger, and the advantages and disadvantages of growing old. We'll Always Have Paris is a play that will leave audiences charmed, amused, thoughtful - and singing!
Three women of a 'certain age' gravitate to Paris. There's Nancy, a retired headmistress determined to throw off the shackles; Anna, recently widowed - and free - after years of nursing a sick husband; and Raquel, a divorcee in search of eternal youth and a new toy boy.

All My Sons

A classic drama by Arthur Miller

19 - 22 February 2020

The story concerns the fortunes of the Keller and Deever families. During the war, Joe Keller and Herbert Deever ran a machine shop which made aeroplane parts. Deever was sent to prison because the firm turned out defective parts, causing the deaths of many men. Keller, however, went free and made a lot of money.

The twin shadows of this catastrophe and the fact that the young Keller son was reported missing during the war dominate the action. The love affair of Chris Keller and Ann Deever, the bitterness of George Deever returned from war to find his father in prison and his father's partner free, are all set in a structure of almost unbearable power. The climax showing the reactions of a son to his guilty father is a fitting conclusion to a play which is electrifying in its intensity.
