Members enjoyed a summer barbecue in Gareth & Tessa’s garden.
Despite weeks & months of hot dry weather, it was still a relief to end up with a rain-free day.
We invite you to share the details of our forthcoming production of JB Priestley's "Dangerous Corner" with your family, friends and colleagues and look forward to seeing you on one of the nights!
Robert and Freda Caplan are hosting a lovely dinner at their country home. However, a chance remark by one of the guests sets off a series of devastating discoveries, unveiling a hitherto-undiscovered web of clandestine relationships and dark secrets, the disclosures of which have tragic consequences.
As usual, we are partnering with a local group for our Charity Supper Show. This time Guideposts in Witney will assist us in organising the evening in return for a share of the profits. Guideposts works to make a lasting difference to the lives of those affected by the challenges of caring, ageing, learning disabilities and mental health.

The production dates are May 15th -18th 2019. Rehearsals will take place in the evening on Wednesdays from January & also Mondays from March.
The open auditions will be held at Eynsham Village Hall on Sunday 21st October from 3.30pm - 6pm with recalls on Sunday 28th October from 3.30pm – 6pm
This is a play with a large cast and we invite all actors to apply (especially male actors)
The parts (and approx playing age range) are:
Rogers (45-65):the dignified butler.
Fred Narracot (45-70)manservant (very small part)
Philip Lombard (40-55):attractive, mysterious, with the touch of an adventurer about him.
Antony Marston (25-35):a good looking, rich, spoiled young man
William Blore (50-65):a former police inspector
General MacKenzie (65-80):upright soldierly old man with a gentle, tired face
Sir Lawrence Wargrave (55-70):a recently retired judge
Dr Armstrong (45-65) :a gullible, slightly timid doctor
Vera Claythorne (35-50):a former Governess
Emily Brent (60-75)an old, ruthlessly religious woman
Ethel Rodgers (45-65):Rogers’ wife. A frail woman.
Ten guilty strangers are trapped in a house on an island. One by one they are accused of murder: one by one they start to die. In this superlative mystery play, statuettes of little soldier boys on the mantelpiece fall to the floor and break one by one as those in the house succumb to a diabolical avenger.
A sample of the script will be sent in advance to all interested applicants to be read in the auditions. A fuller Plot Summary and full character analysis will also be made available.
If you are interested in auditioning, please contact Denise Santilli on firstname.lastname@example.org or 07721 744020
Dangerous Corner proved to be very successful production and we received very positive reviews!
“I’m living among illusions,” intones Robert Caplan, solemnly contemplating what might have been, as this brooding tale wends towards its finale."
"The play takes place entirely in a drawing room, decorated in typically attractive Bartholomew Players style".
"There’s plenty to ponder – the cast all do the material justice, putting in plenty of energy".

Rob Bertwistle, Regional Representative of NODA:
"This complex and wordy thriller was brought vividly to life by this fine ensemble cast with a very convincing set and period looking props and set dressing".

Nigel James of ODN:
"What a tangled web this play presents, although this was a short play, it was fast moving and held the interest".
"Congratulations to all on another splendid production".
