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.

Congratulations to the cast and crew of last year's autumn production, 'The Odd Couple - Female Version' by Neil Simon. We were nominated in the category of Best Drama in the NODA (National Operatic and Dramatic Association) award ceremony.

We didn't win, but we were thrilled to be considered. Onward and upward!

The Extraordinary Revelations of Orca the Goldfish (Tristram)

A fabulously funny short comedy from David Tristram.

Henry and Alice’s marriage is flagging, but Henry rises above it all, for in his fantasies he becomes an actor, raconteur, sporting hero, business tycoon, secret agent, Casanova and President of the United States.

Alice, too, seeks comfort in her exotic daydreams but struggles to take her relationship with French waiter Michel to the next level … their goldfish Orca seems insignificant amongst the chaotic blur between fantasy and reality.

Perhaps it takes the ultimate sacrifice on his behalf to bring the couple back together…
