2021/22 SEASON


A Comedy Double-Bill

Our November 2021 production is a double-bill of classic comedies at the Bovingdon Memorial Hall:-

The Real Inspector Hound by Tom Stoppard
Chinamen (from The Two of Us) by Michael Frayn

The Real Inspector Hound is one of Tom Stoppard’s earliest comedies and follows a pair of theatre critics as they review a country house murder mystery play until they inadvertently become embroiled in the action.  In Chinamen, the inspiration for Michael Frayn’s later classic Noises Off, a dinner party quickly becomes a frantic farce while the hosts try to keep two of their guests apart!

Performances will be at 7.45pm from Thursday 25 November to Saturday 27 November 2021.  You can book your tickets at £12 (or £10 for concessions) right here.

For the consideration of others, audience members are encouraged to wear face coverings. See the ABOUT section for a full list of the Covid measures we are putting in place.

DUETS by Peter Quilter

Set in the 1960s in a pub in Oldham, 'Hangmen' tells the story of Harry, ‘the 2nd best Hangman in England’ and how he copes with the abolition of hanging.  When a mysterious stranger arrives at his pub, with a dark motive behind his visit, things take a sinister turn…With its range of wonderful characters, savagely dark humour and pathos, ‘Hangmen’ will have you both gripped and entertained from the onset.


Being set in an apartment that moves location, Duets by Peter Quilter is an hilarious tribute to the strength and madness of the human heart, that explores the lighter side of romance and relationships. Peter Quilter is a talented writer who allows the cast to bond and relate to their characters in such a way that it is hard to believe you are not watching real life unfold.
