Off Centre will be entering this year’s Hereford County Drama Festival which is being held at The Market Theatre, Ledbury from 19th to 21st March. Our entry is the light comedy ‘The Proposal’ written by celebrated Russian dramatist, Anton Chekov and will be directed by Judith ‘Ghost Train’ Rossiter.
Off Centre reached the semi-final of this competition in 2016, and has been very successful in the past, winning several awards for various performances and productions.
The Director, cast and crew would love to have members and friends come along to support their performance on the evening.
Rehearsals have now begun on ‘THE OPPOSITE SEX’, the very funny adult-themed comedy written by comedy master playwright David Tristram.
The play explores, in painful and comical detail, the consequences of marital infidelities. A chance meeting between an Avon rep and her client proves pivotal in throwing two couples together in what should have been a pleasant social evening. But when our four protagonists meet for a dinner party, the common denominator turns out to be that there is history between the opposite partners.
The play will be performed from 12th to 14th March is is being jointly directed by Phil Davies and Keith Davis.
There will be a reading of the deliciously dark comedy ‘Dinner’ written by Moira Buffini and which is our intended June production. This play is centred around a dinner party from hell, where the female host invites guests to celebrate the release of her husband’s best selling book. But the evening combusts in a dramatic turn of events.
The play reading will be hosted by Debbie Fowler and will be held on Thursday 23rd January at Ty Price Hall 7.00pm. NOTE - The play does contain some very strong language.
Our next Club Night will be held on Thursday 27th February when we will be holding an evening of several comedy sketches, including a preview of ‘The PROPOSAL’ our entry into this years Hereford One-Act Drama festival ( see below ).
This event will be held at Monmouth Methodist Church Hall, 16a St James Street starting 7.30pm. There will be light refreshments and drinks available. There is no entry fee but guests are invited to make a small donation to cover costs.
