Gameplan: A play by Alan Ayckbourn


Friday 28 June  7:30pm      The Herongate Club


Teenage Sorrel fights to keep herself and her abandoned mother, once a dot.com businesswoman, financially afloat by setting up as a part-time hooker, advertising for clients on the Internet and persuading her tearful school chum to act as her maid. Just when you wonder what will happen in this terrible situation the play becomes a farce about body disposal, police questioning and media intrusion.

Guy Masterson - Fern Hill & Other Dylan Thomas


Thursday 4 July  8:00pm      The Croft Hall


A return to Hungerford from Guy is a very welcome event.

Many will remember Guy’s amazing solo performance of "Under Milk Wood” in 2010 and his hilarious portrayal of the distraught actor in “The Half” in 2013. Described as “arguably the world’s finest exponent of the works of Dylan Thomas” Guy returns with his 2001 Edinburgh Best Actor Award-winning performance of the "Other Works of Dylan Thomas" - or, as he likes to call it - the “Not 'Under Milk Wood' Dylan Thomas”! A selection of three delightful short stories - including of course the much loved “A Child’s Christmas In Wales” along with some of Dylan’s most famous poems including “Death Shall Have No Dominion” and “Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night.”

Snow White, Rose Red, Bear Brown


Sunday 7 July  3:00pm      The Croft Hall


Snow White and Rose Red – sisters, twins, best friends – have lived in the forest since they were Babes in the Wood. Bought up by their hardworking Mother to be kind, caring and forest fluent.

When their quiet life is interrupted by a friendly bear a new chapter begins. But why has the bear chosen them as playfellows? Why is there sadness in his eyes? And who on earth is that rude little man with a ridiculously long beard that they keep bumping in to?

All questions will be answered in the Woods of Widdershins - by Professor of Gnomology, Andromedus Silverbeard – using puppets, storytelling, and original music.

​ Suitable for ages 4 and up

The Watermill Theatre: OUR CHURCH By Marietta Kirkbride

SOLD OUT
Monday 8 July  8:00pm      The Croft Hall


Directed by Nik Partridge

In some people’s lives there is a moment when something goes wrong, when they do something very bad, something that poisons their life for good.

In a small village, the last remaining members of the dwindling church committee gather to discuss its future. At this critical meeting, Tom, a contentious nomination to join the committee, is put forward. Caught with indecent images of children on his computer, Tom has been to prison and is now on the sex offenders register. Whilst many of the community can’t forgive him, one committee member proposes that Tom is given a second chance.

When the impact of the past collides with the future of a village community, is forgiveness ever possible? A powerful and captivating new drama that explores, from multiple points of view, what it means to live a haunted life.

This play contains themes of a sensitive and potentially distressing nature. Parental discretion recommended.

Kindly sponsored by The Sackler Trust, Principal Supporter of Watermill Rural Touring
