RADIO PLAY - Spring 2021
'Rambles on Radio'
by Robert Scott
We are looking for a cast for our latest radio play endeavor. Please email Emma Parsley if you are interested in auditioning and I will send you the zoom link and script
After the very successful production on radio of The Monkey's Paw, The Burgess Hill Theatre Club has decided to do an encore!
The choice has fallen on a one-act farce called 'Rambles on Radio'.
A radio host with his amateur dramatists is preparing to air his new script. Lack of content, lack of talent and lack attention to detail combined with a marital discord bring a level of success one would expect.
As this script is based on a stage performance, we have adapted the script slightly to make it suitable for radio.
Input and inventive solutions are very welcome
Auditions will be held via Zoom on Sunday 9th May at 19:30.
Autumn Production - 2021
by Graham Linehan
Pippa Jones and Sophie Davies
Postponed - Watch this page for updates
'The Ladykillers' is one of the best-loved British films of all time. The 1955 Ealing comedy was adapted into a stage play in 2011 by Graham Linehan, the co-writer of Father Ted, IT crowd, Black Books and Motherland.
Kind hearted, elderly Mrs Wilberforce lives alone apart from her parrot, General Gordon. All is not as it seems when she rents a room to the mysterious Professor Marcus so he and his amateur musician friends can practise. When the musicians arrive, however, it’s fairly obvious to all except innocent Mrs Wilberforce that this is no Mozart string quartet but a bunch of crooks. When she becomes wise to their ruse, Marcus concludes that there is only one way to keep the old lady quiet. With Mrs Wilberforce alone with five desperate men who will be forced to face the music?
