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.

Jack & the Beanstalk

A tale of love, adventure and some beans! A gruesome Giant, a wicked Fairy, a fabulous Fairy, a brave hero, the obligatory village idiot, a daft Dame and, of course, a cute and cuddly cow!

The kingdom is in trouble! Giant Blunderbore and his partners in crime, the evil Fairy Snott and Bogey are blackmailing the King and Princess Jill, forcing them to pay protection money or else the Giant will gobble them up!

All that stands between the Royals and the Giant's dinner plate is a collection of unreliable misfits!

There is dizzy Dame Dottie Trott, facing eviction from her dairy, her lazy son Idle Jack, a day dreamer who is waiting for his destiny to find him, dippy Silly Billy, the incompetent village idiot and the lovable cow, Buttercup (who probably has more brains than the rest of them put together!).

Can this motley gang save the kingdom from destruction and beat the beastly Giant and the wicked Fairy? What can Fairy Cake do to help them?
