Our Summer 2020 Production: The Winter's Tale
We have, very regrettably, decided to postpone our forthcoming production of The Winter’s Tale.
Although the playing dates may be some way off, it would be negligent at the very least for us to commence rehearsals given the government advice regarding non-essential contact and Coronavirus, and therefore we feel we have come to the only possible decision.
I know this will be very disappointing to regular readers, but I’m sure it’s not unexpected, and we look forward optimistically to reviving our fortunes with this very same production in 2021.
Our 18/19 season.....
……was one of our most successful yet, with My Second Best Bed winning prizes and our summer production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream gathering praise from every quarter…… and let us not forget our wandering minstrels appearance at Ightham Mote…..Bard with a Beat.
The Society was founded in 1997 to promote and enjoy the work of Shakespeare and his contemporaries, giving members the chance to get involved both on and off the stage. We mount a full-scale open-air Shakespeare production once a year, plus participation in Drama festivals, and we try to arrange a variety of activities during the year, such as workshops, theatre visits and social events.
