SEASON’S GREETINGS

It’s Christmas at the Bunkers’. The men watch TV and go down the pub. The women cook and look after the kids. It’s the same every year. Except this year Rachel has brought a (handsome, male) friend and hilarity ensues. Alan Ayckbourn’s Season’s Greetings is the perfect antidote to forced Christmas cheer.

7.45pm (Sunday 2.30pm, no performance Monday). The Questors Theatre, Mattock Lane, Ealing
From £7 (please see website for details)  Box office: 020 8567 5184

Thursday 9 - Saturday 11 November

Popup Theatre

THIS MAY HURT A BIT – a play by Stella Feehily

The play starts with Nye Bevan speaking for the NHS. Then a modern briefing for PMs questions which attempts to justify the Health and Social Care Act of 2013 but the senior civil servant, in a moment of rare honesty, says its “utter b******s”. From here we enter the Harrington Hospital and chart the experiences of one family, two other patients, one corpse and the overworked staff. There are surreal moments where the Grim Reaper, Nye Bevan and Churchill join in the action and Maggie Thatcher appears in a strange guise. This play is an unashamed call to save our NHS, with a blend of extreme anger and dark comedy.

7.45pm. Questors Studio Theatre, 12, Mattock Lane, Ealing, W5 5BQ
£8 (concessions £7) Box office: 020 8567 5184 / www.questors.org.uk

Popup Theatre (the performance name of Pisces Players)

September 2017

We are a friendly drama group and pride ourselves on our diversity. We have two main productions a year, and run various workshops as well as take part in a local festival. We also give staged readings of new work. Our next production is in November, after we take a summer break in late July and August. New members are welcome, and we would like somebody to join us to be stage manager, for whom there is a role in the play. A way to dip your toes into acting. We meet regularly on Tuesdays and Thursdays when in production. Our rehearsal space is at St. Andrew’s Church Centre, Mount Park Road, Ealing, W5 2RS.

We don’t charge a set subscription but have a donation box and members pop in what they can when they can. 

Just drop in one Tuesday or email beewolfie@talk21.com.
