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.

The Odd Couple - Female Version (Simon)

Olive Madison and Florence Unger are the ultimate dysfunctional roommates; after only three weeks of living together, they have driven each other out of their minds. What started as Olive's sincere effort to help her friend evolves into a major source of conflict, as the two disagree about orderliness, responsibility, personal space and everything else. This is Neil Simon at his best – a hit comedy about mismatched roommates… from the feminine point of view. Instead of the poker party that begins the original version, Olive has invited the girls over for an evening of Trivial Pursuit. The Pidgeon sisters have been replaced by the two Costazuela brothers. But the hilarity remains the same.
