How to train your husband
by Devon Williamson

How to train your husband? An impossible task? Not when you have a legendary Husband Trainer living right next door!

Thus the scene is set for Bishopstoke Players’ next production, Devon Williamson’s madcap comedy, ‘How to Train your Husband’, which takes to the stage of the Memorial Hall in May.

Addressing an issue close to every woman’s heart, we follow the adventures of three generations of the Smith family as they attempt to turn their men into fully trained members of the opposite sex. Nothing quite goes according to plan and the result is an hilarious comedy with plenty of unexpected twists and turns.
Be prepared to giggle, squirm, and get involved in this multi-generational, clever look at marriage. Ladies beware, some of the secrets are being let out!

Performances will be in Bishopstoke Memorial Hall from Thursday 16th to Saturday 18th May 2019 at 7.30pm.

Tickets are £8 (£6 for those aged 16 or under) and are available from 1st April from www.bishopstokeplayers.uk, or email boxoffice@bishopstokeplayers.uk, or phone 07871 006551.

As with all Bishopstoke Players’ productions, proceeds will be donated to the charity Action for Children.

An amateur production by arrangement with Stagescripts Ltd

They Came from Mars and Landed Outside the Farndale Avenue Church Hall in Time for the Townswomen's Guild's Coffee Morning
by David McGillivray and Walter Zerlin Junior

The Farndale Avenue ladies attempt lift off with their Dramatic Society's unique production of a sci fi thriller. Needless to say, high tech effects going awry and the limited talents of some group members ensure that the cast remains firmly on the ground some more than others. As ever, the resourceful Mrs. Reece brilliantly circumnavigates pitfalls as she steers the company into orbit and through space to genteel tea on Mars, where the nail biting action is interrupted to present the Flower Arranging Award.

My Husband's Nuts
by Devon Williamson

Barbara's husband is missing on the family farm. Jack, your stereotypical farmer, suffers a bump to the head, causing him to, as the play's name suggests, go a tad nutty. The havoc this creates leads to many an unexpected event and awkward moment. On his return he is a nervous wreck and will not leave the house... he is suffering from 'agriphobia' (the fear of agriculture), and is convinced that he is Hiroo Onoda - a Japanese soldier holding out on an island after World War Two. Barbara's husband is, well... nuts. The only people she can trust with this information is the new vet and the village idiot. How will they restore Jack's mind without the help of the medical profession... or common sense?
