MAD’s first play of the decade is the comedy farce “A VERY SCOTTISH PLAY” by John Waterhouse, March 19-21 and 26-28.

In the words of the author...”Terry is suffering from stress and tension and his wife Angela thinks that a long weekend away will do him a power of good. An unsolicited flyer from a guest-house on a remote Scottish island leads Terry and Angela on a journey that will include a black-cloaked ghost, a bizarre mystic, a flamboyant American film Director and a dodgy B & B owner, who seems to have his fingers in too many pies."

Keeping Up Appearances is one of those programmes that was so deeply embedded in our cultural consciousness that the mere mention of an invitation to a Hyacinth Bucket (pronounced Bouquet) candlelight supper sent people fleeing. 

The action is centred around a church hall where social climber Hyacinth is showing her new painting “Willows by Moonlight” at the local art exhibition. At the same time and in the same venue her long-suffering neighbour Emmet is directing a play for the local amateur dramatic company, and is determined to go to extreme lengths to keep Hyacinth out of the play.  When Hyacinth hears that the part of Lady Melvern is yet to be cast, nothing will stop her from taking this role!

Jack & The Beanstalk

26 - 29 November

& 3 - 6 December

 

 

 

 

Jack is a poor boy living with his widowed mother and a dairy cow in a farm cottage. The cow's milk is their only source of income, but when the cow stops giving milk, Jack's mother tells him to take Daisy to the market to be sold. When Jack returns from the market with only a handful of beans, Jack's mother is distraught and throws the beans away. This traditional 'tale' is full of laughs, goodies and baddies that will have you laughing and boo-ing the whole way through - oh, yes it will!
