Societies: Bishopstoke Players

When we were founded 75 years ago, our predecessors presented short plays in and around Bishopstoke as part of their fund-raising activities for the National Children’s Home (now Action for Children).

Then, forty years later, we began entering plays in one-act drama festivals, a hugely enjoyable activity which we continue to this day.

We’ve rarely presented these as a standalone production but, in our anniversary year, we thought we’d show you what we get up to with these plays, hence ‘Ones’.

Fresh from their success in the Totton Festival of Drama 2022, we’ll be presenting ‘Out of the Flying Pan’, a satire by David Campton, and ‘You Tell Me’, a family drama by Peter Yates (note: there is some strong language in this play).

These plays have won a number of acting awards at several drama festivals in the region, culminating with ‘Out of the Flying Pan’ being runner-up at Totton, so you can be sure of an evening of quality entertainment!

To complete the evening’s line up we’ll be presenting ‘Halfway up the M3 on the Way to Basingstoke’, a comedy by Barry Kitchen which we presented in drama festivals several years ago – a ‘play that goes wrong’, which is just as funny today as it was back then.

So come and join us at Durley Memorial Hall (Durley Brook Road, SO32 2AR) from 26th to 28th May at 7.30pm. Tickets are £10 (£8 for under-18) and are available online (now with no booking fee), or email, or phone 07871 006551.

As with all our plays, proceeds are donated annually to Action for Children
