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.

Blue Remembered Hills (Potter)

Dennis Potter’s 'Blue Remembered Hills', originally written for the BBC’s Play for Today series and screened in 1979, focuses its gaze on the lives of seven children playing in the Forest of Dean during the Second World War. At just one hour and 15 minutes long, the play hones in on the intense world which children inhabit, free to play and run wild in the countryside while their parents are either away at war or busy keeping the home fires burning.

Staying true to Potter’s original direction, all the children are played by adult actors, a comment on memory, the death of childhood innocence, and the blurred line that separates childhood from grown up responsibility. It all seems idyllic until you remember that nothing is quite what it seems in Potter-world.

There’s a sense of foreboding throughout. You know something bad is going to happen but you’re not sure what until the last few moments.
