Bouncers

The Reject Theatre Company

Bouncers

By John Godber

John Godber’s play shows a night on the tiles from the point of view of the men on the door. It is a funny, energetic piece of highly theatrical storytelling where the men are at once themselves, and every character they happen to meet on a night at work at the nightclub. The central theme of Bouncers is universal: men after beer after women, and the beat goes on.

Thoroughly Modern Millie

By Richard Morris, Dick Scanlan and Jeanine Tesori

New York,1922. Millie Dillmount arrives from Kansas in search of a new life. Her plan is to find a job as a secretary for a wealthy man and marry him. However, her plan goes completely awry. The owner of her dingy hotel kidnaps young girls to sell to the Far East, her wealthy boss is slow in proposing marriage and the man she actually falls in love with doesn’t have a dime to his name... or so he tells her.
Filled with frisky flappers, dashing leading men and a dragon lady of a villainess, Thoroughly Modern Millie is a perfectly constructed evening of madcap merriment.

Blitz

By Lionel Bart

In 1940 the East End of London is taking a terrible pounding from Hitler's bombs. Life, however, goes on, centring around the matriarchal Mrs. Blitztein and her large family, especially her petty-criminal son Harry and her beautiful daughter Carol. They all fight their own particular battles with neighbours and authorities alike through many situations – some humorous, some tragic – and eventually find their own individual peace.
Providing scope for a large cast, it features many hit songs, including The Day After Tomorrow, Who's This Geezer Hitler? and Mums and Dads.

Witham Dramatic Club

The Reunion

By Peter Gordon

It’s good to meet up with old friends . . . or perhaps not!
When Nigel arranges a reunion in the back room of a pub, he is optimistic of a good turnout. Whilst the numbers disappoint him, he soon has his hands full when a motley middle-aged threesome turn up, bringing with them assorted wives, girlfriends, prejudices, and resentments that have simmered for the last twenty-five years. Comedy and confusion combine in this hilarious but poignant story of ‘small people’ in a ‘big world’.

  • Tickets £12.50. Senior Citizens and Children under 16 £10.50 (Wed. and Thurs. only)
