Tickets for this run sold out in record time, and the question we were asked time and time again was:


Why can't you put on more performances?


and here's the answer! - we are an amateur company, and many of us hold down full time jobs.


Staging a play is a major committment of time and effort, especially a production  as demanding as The Dam Play, or one of our ever-popular pantomimes - it requires a huge committment from a large number of people, and long runs are simply not possible given the other demands made on our cast.


We do apologise to anyone who has been disappointed, and can only say in our defence that we tried to warn people of the need to be at the Playhouse the day booking opened; we believe that everyone who turned up, or who phoned up later in the afternoon, was able to get seats.


The good news is that the 2009 performance was professionally filmed and edited, and a DVD of The Dam Play is now available  - click here to order a copy.
