Chameleons play comedy, drama, plays and pantomimes. We like a challenge and so have undertaken a wide variety of plays in thirty years' performing, including Noises Off, which requires the complete set to be reversed twice, between the acts, Daisy Pulls it Off and Blue Remembered Hills where our small stage had to represent several distinct areas for acting, and Female Transport which is set below decks on a prison transport ship.
