The programme running from November 15 to 17 consists of two one act plays and a “radio play.”

A Separate Peace by Tom Stoppard is a warm and sometimes amusing mystery centred on the relationship between a stranger and his nurse,

It features a Mr Brown who admits himself to a private ward at the Beechwood Nursing Home in the post war years. He is not ill but seems happy to be in hospital.

What is his secret and what does he want? His nurse, Maggie, gradually gets him to open up and we learn why Mr. Brown yearns for his ‘separate peace’.

The Burbot by Anton Chekov (1885), is the story of a group of friends who discover an enormous fish in the river has been given a Norfolk twist in a translation by Harvey Pitcher, and presented as a radio play. The story begins on a fine summer’s morning on a riverbank somewhere in Norfolk.

The Fat Lady Sings in Little Grimley by David Tristram centres on the local amateur dramatic society which is in trouble. The membership has dwindled to four - and the audiences are not much bigger. If they do not come up with some rent money soon, they are going to be thrown out. Chairman Gordon says the only thing that sells is sex, sparking the chaos that ensues.

Tickets for the 7.30pm shows from the box office on 01263 822347.
