We have performed two comedy plays specifically written for the ZOOM video network. The plays are written by Tess Townsend and Marie-Jose Zuurbier and is part of a series concerning a fictitious Amateur Theatre Group coping with lockdown. Each has been Directed by Tom Rigby.

Both performances can be viewed on our YouTube channel.

Dean Radio aired “Edna and Jim and the Perfect Sandwich” featuring OCT’s very own Tony & Eileen Summers. The performance was courtesy of the author, Ian Townsend and playscriptsonline.com.

A short tale of love, loss and luncheon meat, a feast for the senses. A gentle, poignant comedy, the broadcast is available to listen by via the recording below.
