Clavering Players present a romantic comedy about the sexual politics of open marriage by DARIO FO and FRANCA RAME. Tickets include a performance by acoustic guitar and vocal duo from REV2, a glass of wine and a light supper.

'THE OPEN COUPLE' explores serious themes but its farcical structure leads to hilarious situations that will amuse, entertain and keep you guessing right up to the end.

Dario Fo won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1997 and his many plays include 'Can’t Pay? Won’t Pay!' and 'Accidental Death of an Anarchist'.

Come along! On the 3rd & 4th March 2018 at 7.30pm in Clavering Village Hall!

We are thrilled to announce that our festival production 'The Extraordinary Revelations of Orca the Goldfish' by David Tristram, came a very close runner up with just one point dividing us and the winning team from Woking.

Out of eleven entries, we thought it was a great result. Not only did we get the NDFA Council Trophy for runner up but also the John Scowen Award for Comedy and the Audience Appreciation award when all audience members who bought season tickets get to vote on their favourite production of the week. Thanks to all members and friends who supported us during this festival period.

Bollards - a Revue (Various)

It is some years since a full-blooded revue appeared on the West End stage. Television is usually blamed because it consumes quick-fire comedy and musical sketches in vast quantities, leaving nothing new for the theatre. Beyond the Fringe, That Was the Week That Was, Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In came and went.

So, we have brought them back... along with some new material. Prepare to laugh a lot, because English comic material is the best in the world! Kenneth Kemp
