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 Rise and Fall of Little Voice (Cartwright)

Melissa Jones (Director), set the bar high for the May production of 'The Rise and Fall of Little Voice' by Jim Cartwright. Melissa had brought in a West End musical director to help key members of the cast hit the high notes.


Currently working on Cameron Mackintosh’s new musical 'Betty Blue Eyes' opening in the West End, musical director Bob Broad had also given some time to coach Lara Anstead for her performance of Little Voice. Lara will be following in the footsteps of Jane Horrocks who starred in the film version, and Diana Vickers, who recently played the part on stage.


Bob, 29, is repertoire coach for Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts, among other London drama schools, and has been instrumental in bringing major touring productions of 'My Fair Lady', 'High School Musical' and 'The Witches of Eastwick' to the stage.


“I think audiences are in for a treat with this production,” says Bob. “From what I have seen, the cast are aiming for a top performance.
