Dessert

By Oliver Cotton

A British Financier and his wife host a lavish dinner party for their affluent American friends. The food is delicious, the conversation animated and dessert is on it’s way-when from one second to another, the evening takes a sinister and alarming turn

This is a powerful, thought-provoking play about wealth, greed and the lengths to which people will go to claim what’s theirs.

This will be the first amateur production of this play to be performed.

A Daughters a Daughter

by Agatha Christie

The love between a mother and daughter turns to jealousy and bitterness in this intense and personal drama. Ann Prentice falls in love with Richard Caulfield and hopes for a new life and happiness. Only her daughter, Sarah, takes an instant jealous dislike to him. Resentment slowly corrodes their relationship as each seeks comfort in the formidable and knowing Dame Laura Whitstable who remarks, “the trouble with sacrifice is that once it’s made it’s not over and done with.”

Any additional information: The play is set between 1946 and 1949. It is in 3 Acts. There are 9 characters: 4 men, 5 women (no children). The play is based on Christie’s 1931 novel of the same name is written under her pseudonym, Mary Westmacott. It is rarely performed professionally – the last West End performance was in 2009 at the Trafalgar Studios – and this is the first time the play has been released to amateurs.

Young Marx

Richard Bean and Clive Coleman

It is 1850 and Europe’s most feared terrorist is hiding in Dean Street, Soho. He is broke, restless, often drunk, chasing woman after woman and certainly not writing. He is a frothing combination of intellectual brilliance, invective, satiric wit and childlike emotional illiteracy. Creditors, spies, rival revolutionary factions and prospective seducers of his beautiful wife all circle like vultures. His writing blocked, his marriage dying, his friend Engels in despair at his wasted genius, his only hope is a job on the railway!! But there’s still no-one in London who can show you a better alcohol-fuelled night out than Karl Heinrich Marx.

This play opened the new Bridge Theatre in Southwark 12 months ago and this could be an ‘Amateur Premier unless any other amateur companies perform it before April 2019 – will check with agent nearer the time.
