We are all still constrained by the government advice to avoid gatherings. But we still need to plan for a future and for a return to normality. For the time being, we will use online methods to continue to rehearse MARY STUART, with a view to staging it in the next slot we have booked at the Unicorn Theatre Abingdon.

Only one may rule.
Elizabeth I faces Mary Stuart in a vicious fight for the throne of England.
Amidst threats of civil war, religious unrest and the plots of scheming courtiers,
the two queens know neither who to trust nor who to doubt.
Elizabeth risks betrayal. Mary is under sentence of death.
All is at stake.
Can Elizabeth save her kingdom? Can Mary keep her head?
A new adaptation of the classic Schiller historical tragedy.

Future Plans ...
The current social impact on Covid-19 means that we are not currently meeting.
We do, though, plan to keep rehearsing (online) for our production of Mary Stuart, with a view to staging it on 22 to 25 July, assuming the restrictions have been lifted in time. At the moment, this is beginning to look unlikely.

After that show, we plan to rehearse a new Discworld show by Stephen Briggs - Terry Pratchett: Murder in Ankh-Morpork. That show will be cast on the basis of an open reading on Monday 27 July (19:30), and will be staged on 18 to 21 November. The online box office for this show will open at 09:00 on 1 September 2020. This plan, too, may have to change - depending on the progress of the country's emergence from the current lockdown restrictions. We don't know how life will be working at the end of July, and our plans for the November production will be decided on the basis of that end-July position.
