What we do

Our aim is to read full length plays although at times we have also read one act plays and sketches, some written by the Creative Writing Group. We vary our readings between classical and contemporary plays, comedies, thrillers, tragedies etc. As the majority of the group have been members of dramatic societies, they prefer reading a part rather than just sitting and listening.

The plays are chosen by suggestions from the members or the coordinator and given out at the meeting. We do not read the plays prior to our meeting. On some occasions members have to take more than one part when the play selected has a large cast.

If you just like to hear a play read, however, you are most welcome to join the group.

Our next meeting is on Tuesday January 28th at the Unitarian Chapel at 1.30pm and continues on the last Tuesday of the month until June.
