         Axbridge Town Hall
 The Deep Blue Sea
         by Terence Rattigan
        Directed by John Bailey

Terence Rattigan’s devastating masterpiece, a classic study of forbidden love, suppressed desire and the fear of loneliness – but at heart a deeply moving love story.

A flat in Ladbroke Grove, West London. 1952. When Hester Collyer is found by her neighbours in the aftermath of a failed suicide attempt, the story of her tempestuous affair with a former RAF pilot and the breakdown of her marriage to a High Court judge begins to emerge. With it comes a portrait of need, loneliness and long-repressed passion.

Behind the fragile veneer of post-war civility burns a brutal sense of loss and longing.

 Our Country's Good
       by Timberlake Wertenbaker
          Directed by John Bailey

Observed by a lone, mystified Australian aboriginal , the convict ship arrives in Botany Bay in1788, crammed with England's outcasts. Colony discipline in this vast and alien land is brutal. Three proposed public hangings incite an argument: how best to keep the criminals in line, the noose or a more civilised form of entertainment? The ambitious Second Lieutenant Ralph Clark steps forward with a play. But as the mostly illiterate cast rehearses, and a sense of common purpose begins to take hold, the young officer's own transformation is as marked and poignant as that of his prisoners. The play is far from grim. Actually it's mostly funny! "All people tend to become what society says they are! In performance the convicts challenge their definition."
