2016 kicked off with Ladies Day by Amanda Whittington. Funny and dark, the play followed the fortunes of four female fish packers from Hull who decide to sample a dose of the high life themselves.
Well received by our packed houses, the play was clearly a popular choice and sent our audiences home happy but thoughtful.
April saw our first date with the Bard for a few years. With Shakespeare’s 400th anniversary this year, we are performing the popular comedy Twelfth Night. Directed and edited by Keith Thompson, the play was a highly accessible and fun version of this wonderful classic, and impressed audiences of all ages.
The end of the year saw our final production, God of Carnage, directed by Alacoque Marvin. A taught play of words and manners, the explosive dialogue and action left our audiences with plenty to talk about. Peter Oxtoby, Clare Andrews, Jo Lyons and Paul Cullingford were the impressive ensemble cast.
