Our Next Production

We’re presenting two one-act plays from Wednesday 14th to Saturday 17th November at 7:30.

The Real Inspector Hound

by Tom Stoppard

Two drama critics, Moon and Birdboot, arrive to watch the performance of a new detective play, a parody of the conventional stage thriller. However the private lives of the critics become inextricably mixed with those of the play’s characters until the pair realise they are in for more than they had bargained for.

The Promise

by H Connolly

A few hours after Stacey Nash’s funeral, her estranged father sits menacingly and uninvited on the sofa in her front room. He is full of cocaine, whisky, remorse, anger and self-pity, but most of all he’s there because he made a promise.

Drama Festivals 2018

The Promise is our entry for the Abingdon (ODN) and Wallingford festivals of one-act plays on 5th June at the Unicorn Theatre, Abingdon and 14th June at Wallingford Corn Exchange.

This is a new play by H Connolly, our resident playwright, and you can see its first performances here before it becomes part of our Autumn production at Compton.
