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.

Robin Hood & The Babes in the Wood


Will the Sheriff have his evil way? Or will Robin and his Merry Men find the Babes, rescue Maid Marion and be back in time for the finale?

This fantastical story of adventure is suitable for outlaws of all ages, with fun-packed songs and dances and always plenty of traditional family fun.  Based on the much-loved English folk tale, Robin Hood is an action packed pantomime extravaganza with stunning costumes, fantastic music, magical choreography, brand new script and the usual comedy mayhem you would expect from a Clavering Player’s pantomime.

Journey with us into the enchanted world of Sherwood Forest as Robin and his motley band of Merry Men clean up at the annual archery contest, take on the wicked Sheriff of Nottingham and battle to rescue Maid Marion from his evil clutches… and all without laddering their tights!
