RAODS presents
Separate Tables
By Terrance Rattigan

Simmering passion and concealed desires in a Bournemouth hotel

Separate Tables combines humour and drama through two linked stories that both take place in the Beauregard Private Hotel, Bournemouth. The first story focuses on the passionate but troubled relationship between a disgraced Labour politician and his glamourous ex-wife. The second deals with the touching friendship between a repressed spinster and a kindly upper-class retired army officer with a mysterious past. This stylish production combines 1950s film noir with genteel British middle-class sensibilities, and challenges many of the social attitudes towards lifestyles and behaviour deemed morally reprehensible in 1950s Britain.


Thursday 15th to Saturday 17th February 2018

Chesil Theatre presents
The Venetian Twins
By Carlo Goldini, translated by Ranjit Bolt

“One minute you seem stupid – the next a little too clever.” Identical twins, one naïve and dim, the other dashing and intelligent, arrive in Venice in search of love, but each with no idea the other is there. Chaos ensues amidst the confusion of frustrated lovers, bizarre fights, devious plots that go off the rails plus a little singing and dancing. A timeless comedy.


Tuesday 20th to Saturday 24th March 2018

Hamble Players present
Prepare To Meet Thy Tomb
by Norman Robbins

Prepare To Meet Thy Tomb follows Tomb With A View and Tiptoe Through the Tombstones to complete the trilogy of plays from Norman Robbins about the family that play together and slay together: the murderous Tombs. This irresistible combination of spoof and baffling murder mystery, over-the-top characters and shocking plot twists will thrill and delight in equal measure.
"This is the sort of thing that Norman Robbins does best: eccentric characters; secret panels; plot twists that are every bit as shocking, and frequent, as the violent deaths suffered by the cast list; and a gloriously funny sense of the macabre throughout" - Amateur Stage, September 2010


Wednesday 18th to Saturday 21st April 2018

Cheriton Players present
Communicating Doors
by Alan Ayckbourn

Set in modern day in a hotel room, a professional dominatrix arrives to service a dying man and inadvertently gets transported back in time where she meets the man’s first two wives. In order to survive herself, she must warn the wives that they are in grave danger. Complicated but easy to follow, this masterpiece from the master of dark comedy excels.
