We are pleased to confirm our next show will be "Abigail's Party" – a play for stage and television devised and directed in 1977 by Mike Leigh.

 

It is a suburban situation comedy of manners, and a satire on the aspirations and tastes of the new middle class that emerged in Britain in the 1970s.

The show runs from 27th–30th November 2019 and tickets will be on sale soon.

The Bartholomew Players have presented a cheque for £600 to The Windrush Bike Project of Witney as their share of the profits from the charity supper evening during the May 2019 production of "And Then There Were None" by Agatha Christie.

 

This equals the largest donation we have been able to award since we started the charity "supper and show" evenings (the other was our November production of "Dangerous Corner" by JB Priestley where we partnered with Guideposts in Witney) and we are delighted that it is going to such a good cause.

We are delighted to announce that the Bartholomew Players production of "Dangerous Corner", directed by Joe O'Connor in his very first Directing role, has won the Pat Redhead Drama Award (best in Oxfordshire & nominated for London) at the 2019 NODA Theatre Festival.

Dangerous Corner was shortlisted as one of 12 other plays in the London Region so this is a great accolade for us. Many congratulations to Joe, the cast and crew of Dangerous Corner for a performance that shows, once again, that the Bartholomew Players are a top-notch theatre group! Read more here.

Stage Curtains

We are searching for (mostly male) actors for our next show – potentially “Whipping It Up”! A quick-witted satirical farce set in the Whips' office at Westminster.

It's a week before Christmas, and the new Tory government is facing dissent over its latest Bill. With a majority of only three, the Whips' office is out in full force, and they'll stop at nothing to keep the strays in line.

If you'd like to get in touch or come along on a Wednesday evening – we'd love to see you!

So come along and join our team to make our next production another success!

Bartholomew Players at Eynsham Carnival

The Bartholomew Players have been delivering quality theatre to the Eynsham Community for more than 40 years. We are always looking for new members to help us produce even more vibrant, professional plays so part of the purpose of entering this year's carnival was to raise awareness that we exist and hopefully to recruit a few new members.

Chair of the Eynsham Primary School PTA as their share of the profits from the Charity Supper night of “The Safari Party”, a play by Tim Firth, performed by Bartholomew Players on Friday 18th May 2018. 67 people attended the 2-course supper and play and the money raised through purchasing tickets for the supper and play, raffle tickets, auction prizes and drinks at the bar enabled Bartholomew Players to make this donation for such a worthy cause which will benefit the Eynsham community. The Primary School will put the money towards refurbishing the classrooms in the school.

JUNE 2018

 

Gareth Hammond, Chairman of The Bartholomew Players, presented a cheque for £550 to Steve Parrinder of Eynsham Museum Fund as their share of the profits from the Supper night of The Constant Wife on 1st Dec 2017. The money will be put towards building a museum display and put into context the Abbey stones (some of which can be seen in the photograph on top of the library shelves) as well as other artefacts from every period of Eynsham's history, using them to tell the story of the village's past in a way that is accessible to all.

DECEMBER 2017

Planning for our next show – The Safari Party, by Tim Firth – is now underway. In particular we are looking for a youngish man (playing age 20’s) to take on the part of Adam. This would suit someone with commitment and some acting experience, who is keen to be part of a talented cast. Please contact Gareth on 07890 970479, or email bart.players@gmail.com if you are interested. As usual, there will be plenty of scope for people to help with backstage functions, so all volunteers are welcome. Lighting and sound will certainly be more demanding than usual!

The Constant Wife was very well received with plaudits from critics and audiences alike. Photos and reviews can be seen by clicking here.
