Just the Ticket | 1st – 6th July 2019

Just the Ticket

by Peter Quilter

Directed by Kerry Heywood

Susan is an eccentric sixty year old who decides to celebrate her birthday by repeating a journey to Australia she made with a group of friends when she was 20.

Now she is travelling alone and carrying the excess baggage of 40 years of bittersweet experience which she recounts with wit and charm as she tells her unique story and slowly starts to write the next chapter of her life.

Dessert | 29th April – 4th May 2019

Dessert by Oliver Cotton  

Directed by Howard James

“Dessert is a bit of guilty treat” The Independent, July 2017

This production is Theatre 62’s entry in the 2019 Bromley Theatre Guild Full Length Play Festival – and will be the amateur premiere of this play.  The play will adjudicated after the performance on Thursday 2nd May.

A British financier and his wife host a lavish dinner party for their affluent American friends. The food is delicious, the conversation animated and dessert is on its way – when from one second to another, the evening takes a sinister and alarming turn…

With dark comic moments and unexpected twists, this is a powerful, thought-provoking play about wealth, greed and the lengths to which people will go to claim what’s theirs
