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.

Tissue (Page)

'Tissue', by award-winning playwright Louise Page, is the story of Sally (Siobhan Brunwin), a young woman in her twenties, who is struggling to come to terms with the discovery, treatment and aftercare of breast cancer.

The play travels through various time zones and locations, to present various small scenes, with each of them forming a part of the larger picture. The short scenes depict touching moments of Sally's experiences during this time, dealing with family members, mum (Claire Anstead) and brother Simon (Jamey Benson) friends Fleur (Hannah Johnson) and Zoey (Kerri Millership) and lovers (David Smithet), as well as doctors (Peter Clyne), nurses (Nettie Hayes) and cool official voices dispensing useful medical knowledge which are interspersed with flashbacks of childhood games.

The play is an intimate, emotional drama which opens up vast areas of feeling beneath the surface of ordinary lives, tugging at the heart-strings and showing the effect on everyone caught up in the crisis.

On Tuesday 21st April, the Clavering Players performed 'Tissue' by Louise Page at the Cambridge Drama Festival and we are extremely proud to announce, that the team and production won first place. Congratulations to everyone involved in the production, and also congratulations to Siobhan who also won best actress; Doug who won best lighting; David who was nominated for best supporting actor and Jennifer Cummings for her input in helping us achieve a nomination for best costume. We also achieved a nomination for best stage presentation.
