Welcome to the Fairlight Players
A SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT
all amateur dramatic groups, our normal activities have been severely
impacted by the Coronavirus outbreak and the consequent restrictions on
public gatherings. We very much look forward to the day when we will be
able to resume something like a normal programme of events.
the meantime, we will endeavour to keep members and supporters
interested and engaged and, to that end, we are currently rehearsing
two radio plays for broadcast at some time during November.
Somebody Else's Smile,
was originally broadcast on the BBC in 1978, and we have been
exceptionally fortunate to be given permission by the writer, Elizabeth
Kay, to bring this wonderful script back to life. The plot revolves
around the residents of a geriatric home, and the efforts of the staff
to give a good impression to potential philanthropists whilst
simultaneously attempting to rehearse the residents for an in-house
production of "The Wizard of Oz."
by Duncan Turner, is set in a Catholic boarding school for boys.
Turmoil ensues when one student decides to turn his back on
Catholicism, and instead follow the religion of the ancient Aztecs,
convincing several of his classmates to do likewise. The staff are not
convinced that the customs and rituals associated with this belief
system are exactly in keeping with the ethos of the school.
two plays will be broadcast at no charge to members and supporters, but
we would encourage those who have not yet renewed their membership to
do so. This is the best way at present that you can continue to support
the Fairlight Players and help to ensure that, when the pandemic is
over, we can continue to serve our wonderful local community in the way
that we done now for over 70 years.
Please download this leaflet for full details about how you can renew your membership online.
In the meantime, please continue to explore this
site, and especially the fascinating archive
section - possibly the most comprehensive online archive of
any am-dram company in the country - or even the world!
