Outside Edge

The great John Arlott once remarked “Villagers do not think village cricket is funny”. This wry observation of how seriously we can sometimes take ourselves goes a long way to explaining the humour and occasional sadness of Richard Harris's classic slice of English Village life. We always try to present a varied programme for both our audiences and our members. Earlier this year we presented Rogers and Hammerstein's 'Oklahoma!', a far remove from 1970s Surrey and the thwack of leather against willow. We are currently in the planning stages of our next production, Robert Bolt's classic “A Man for All Seasons” and this time next year we will be bringing you “Oh What a Lovely War!”. A theatrical variety box I'm sure you would agree, spanning 500 years, corsets to flares, political tragedy to farcical comedy via vaudevillian musical sketch and anti-war comedy. We really do try to cater for all tastes.

If you are interested in getting involved with Pirton Players, whether it be on-stage or backstage; acting or set building, singing or lighting, making costumes or wearing them, painting, stage managing, directing or even making the tea then do get in touch with any one of us; there really is something for everyone.
