Effie's Burning by Valerie Windsor

Effie, who has lived in mental institutions since the age of thirteen, has been admitted to hospital with severe burns. Treating her is Dr Ruth Kovacs, who finds in Effie's extraordinary story of injustice and official callousness the key to her own suppressed anger and power. Taut and powerful, tender and often funny, Effie's Burning is an emotional switchback of a play, with a searing anger at its heart.

Effie ... Marilyn Dunbar

Dr Novaks ... Lisa Dunbar

Ghost of a Chance by Brian J. Burton

When Mrs. Dean discovers that one of her ancestors is supposed to haunt an old deserted house, she arranges with the caretaker to spend thirty minutes in the house alone at night. As she watches in silence, dramatic events of two days in 1860 are re enacted by the former inhabitants of the house. She leaves, having found out the true reason for the reputed haunting-- or does she?

In By The Half by Jimmie Chinn

''In By The Half'' is yet another humorous yet immensely touching play from the pen of Jimmie Chinn. Madam, once a distinguished actress, lives in seclusion in a cottage in West London, looked after by her housekeeper and ex-dresser, Doris. Their peaceful routine includes regular visits from the doctor and the insipid Sylvia, who takes acting lessons from Madam. Life for these ladies has become a well-regulated, quiet experience. One day, however, a surprise visitor arrives - Ursula, Madam's estranged daughter, who is nursing a bitter secret. The initial acerbic comedy of the play gives way to the poignant drama of familial anguish -as Madam and Ursula are forced to confront several unhappy truths and to move towards some kind of understanding.


Geoff Dodsworth

Doris ... Sian Hayden
Doctor ... Sarah Phipps
Sylvia ... Kayleigh Fagence
Ursula ... Carrie Laythorpe
