The Deep Blue Sea | 20th – 25th June 2011

by Terence Rattigan, directed by Muriel Kidd

Rattigan’s exquisitely crafted piece is set in a bleak 1951 London. Six years have passed since the end of World War II, but in England it is still a chill age of austerity and ration books, and a cold climate for love.

Hester Collyer is emotionally desperate having left her husband for a semi-alcoholic ex-RAF pilot whose ardour has cooled. She loves him but cannot live with him, unlike her husband whom she can live with but cannot love.

An attempted suicide fails and she wrestles with her inner turmoil.

Ann Welch                Nicola Bull

My Three Angels | 6th-8th January 2011

By Sam and Bella Spewack, directed by Ray Harris.

It’s Christmas in a small settlement in French Guiana, one hundred years ago. The Dulay family run the general store, but as it is barely making a profit the outlook is bleak. Three convicts from the neighbouring penal colony become involved with the family and, by various means (none of them honest), transform their lives
