A brand new in-house production

Fri 11 Oct 2013

After the success of our home-grown productions of The Pros, The Cons and A Screw and the hilarious two-hander Mother Came Too, we've joined forces with local writer Tim Elgood to produce two great comedies for you next year.

The Dog House and Bare Words will be staged at our Guildhall Theatre from Fri 16 – Sat 31 May. This double bill will be our first in-house production since Spring 2012 and we're really excited!

You can expect a double dose of Elgood humour in two one-act plays…

 The Dog House

It’s a dog’s life in the Mayday Dog Rescue Centre. It is certainly not a ‘Home’ from home. But that suits Paddy just fine. He was never keen on his home. So he took steps and is now a Mayday long term resident. His biggest problem is avoiding being offered a new home. Paddy can think of nothing worse than being ‘rescued’.  He’s happy being in The Dog House.

The Dog House is a poignantly moving and heartily humorous ‘dog’s eye’ view of homelessness, heartbreak and humans.

Bare Words

He is on the verge of writing a truly great one act play. Just a few minor obstacles stand between him and greatness. The director. The actors. The audience. His mother.  And . . . the words. Welcome to the heaven and hell of writing.

Bare Words is the truthful and hilarious portrayal of a young writer’s tortuous face to face combat with his own creativity. The odds are stacked heavily against him. It is barely a fair contest.

If you like the sound of these then you can book tickets online or through our Box Office.
