 We performed to two audiences in November, one at St. Martin's, Stonydelph, and the other in town at St Editha's Community Hall. They seemed to enjoy themselves - we certainly did, and were pleased to raise funds to help us with our next project.  There's a flyer in our archive.

 The Tanner of Tamworth is in rehearsal  for performance in March 2017 as part of the TamLit Festival, and we are waiting to hear if a new project has been successful in raising a grant. More about this when we know. And we still have to find time to shoot the final scene of a short film Betrayal we've been working on.

BUFFET & PLAYREADING,Thursday 19th May
A small group enjoyed a relaxed lunch, followed by an informal reading of Inadmissable Evidence, by John Osborne, which turned out to be a tour de force for the reader of the principal role who tended to go on for pages at a time, and leaving some of the party wondering if their character would ever get to say anything again!

Feedback and photos of the event are posted here. It was a great experience, and even the weather, which was a mixture of Sun, rain & hail, didn't keep the audience's away. Wade St Church was a welcome change from the Marketplace!
