Play Reading


This easy-going group will offer an enjoyable way to bring a play to life without the stress of learning lines, lengthy rehearsals and being in the spotlight on stage!  More fun than a book group and with no homework to feel guilty about forgetting! No experience required. 

We read a wide variety of plays by authors such as Alan Ayckbourn, Tom Stoppard, JB Priestley, Neil Simon etc. Members are also welcome to suggest plays.


Fleur Speakman and Ed Carne
