September 9th – 11th
THE “BREAK-A-LEG” THEATRE COMPANY
“An Evening in Little Grimley”
Two One-act plays written by David Tristram
The evening follows the story of a small amateur dramatics company in the town of Little Grimley as they come out of Lockdown and plan their comeback production.
‘Lockdown in Little Grimley’ tells of the group’s first tentative steps out of lockdown and back on the stage. The hapless Director and writer of all the shows the group perform has an idea to bring the audience flocking back to the theatre with the promise of raising money for a good cause. However, will circumstances beyond their control (and some questionable banana bread) mean everything goes as planned?
‘Last Panto in Little Grimley’ follows the same group of ‘Am-Drammers’ attempting to put on a pantomime, of course written by the Director. The Panto is Dick Whittington, but not as you know it! Will the show be the success they all long for it to be? “Oh yes it will”…… they hope!

AFTER A DELAY OF 18 MONTHS
WOMBWELL THESPIANS PRESENT
A Comedy by Amanda Whittington
Work, love and life are just one long, hard slog for the fish-filleting foursome Pearl, Jan, Shelley and Linda. But their fortunes are set to change when Linda finds tickets to “Ladies Day” at Royal Ascot the year it relocated to York. Out go the hairnets, overalls and wellies as the four ditch work, do themselves up to the nines and head off to the races for a drink, a flirt and a flutter.
Secrets are spilled with the champagne and friendships are tested to the limit. Yet as the day unfolds and tempers fray, their accumulator bet keeps quietly winning. If their luck and their nerve holds, the ladies could could hit the jackpot – and more.
