    • A Bunch Of Amateurs
      A comedy by Ian Hislop & Nick Newman. Keen to boost his flagging career, fading Hollywood action hero Jefferson Steel arrives in England to play King Lear in Stratford – only to find that this is not the birthplace of the Bard, but a sleepy Suffolk village. And instead of Sir Kenneth Branagh and Dame Judi Dench, the cast are a bunch of amateurs trying to save their theatre from developers. Jefferson’s monstrous ego, vanity and insecurity are tested to the limit by the enthusiastic am-dram thespians. As acting worlds collide and Jefferson’s career implodes, he discovers some truths about himself – along with his inner Lear!

    • 30 years on from its premiere at the Royal Court, Our Country’s Good is a modern classic, exploring themes of crime, punishment and the unifying and civilising power of theatre.

      Set in 1787, it tells the true story of a group of convicts transported to Australia who, faced with the appalling realities of life in a penal colony, come together to rehearse and perform a play.

    • Bishopstoke Players’ September production this year is based on the much-loved TV comedy, “The Vicar of Dibley”. All your favourite characters from the hugely popular series – Alice, Hugo, Owen, Jim, David and of course Geraldine – will be on stage to bring you an evening of fun and laughter.



       

      The ancient old vicar of Dibley has passed on and parishioners are horrified to learn that the Bishop has appointed a woman in his place. As Geraldine battles to win over the sceptical parish council, the villagers (with the exception of influential David Horton) gradually learn to accept her as The Vicar of Dibley.

       

      This show brings together some of the best loved moments from the TV series and links them to make a wonderful evening of comedy, culminating in a fairy-tale wedding.

       

      Performances are in Bishopstoke Memorial Hall from Thursday 27th to Saturday 29th September 2018 at 7.30pm. Tickets are £8 (£6 for those aged 16 or under) and are available from www.bishopstokeplayers.uk/buy-tickets or email boxoffice@bishopstokeplayers.uk or phone 07871 006551.

       

      “The Vicar of Dibley” has been adapted for the stage by Ian Gower and Paul Carpenter from the original TV series by Richard Curtis and Paul Mayhew-Archer. With kind permission of Tiger Aspect Productions.

       

      As with all Bishopstoke Players’ productions, proceeds will be donated to the charity Action for Children.
