Next production

Our next production will be The Safari Party by Tim Firth, to be performed 16th-19th May 2018 in Eynsham Village Hall. 

This is a fast-moving, hilarious comedy by the man who wrote Calendar Girls and who has worked with Willy Russell and Alan Ayckbourn. It features 3 households in Cheshire who hold a safari dinner party, with one course in each house. Young “farming” brothers Daniel & Adam are trying to get their lives on a sound footing after a traumatic past. Lol and Esther are brash and vulgar, but in search of the rural idyll, while their long-suffering daughter Bridget forges her own path. Inga is an antiques dealer, with a creative streak. They don’t get on and when the secrets of the table are revealed, it all kicks off.

The Telegraph called it “a cracking comedy – cunningly constructed, thematically rich and above all blissfully funny”.

The Guardian said it “becomes a brilliant expose of bourgeois self-deceit, brought to a pitch of squirming social embarrassment”.
