The Review for Vintage Hitchcock in the Surrey Mirror

Our Previous Production

directed by Lars Sawyer
An amateur production in association with Playscripts, Inc.

In a triple bill of one-act plays, three early films by Alfred Hitchcock, the master of suspense, are brought to life on stage with live sound effects and a live broadcast from the studio of WBFR’s radio station.  The Lodger, a story of the London fog, a tale of mystery and murder; Sabotage, about a bomb plot in London; and The 39 Steps, a tale of spies, political intrigue and unlikely romance – all three  bear Hitchcock’s trademark ability to stretch an audience’s nerves almost to breaking point . . .

Performance dates: 26th, 27th and 28th April, 2018 at 8pm, The Riddell Hall, Dean’s Lane, Walton on the Hill.  Doors and bar open at 7.30pm.  Tickets £10, box office 01737 812 703.

An extra performance is being put on for the Banstead Arts Festival: 2nd May 2018 at 8pm. Banstead Community Hall, Park Road, SM7 3AJ. Tickets £10. For more ticket information click here

THE GAGE INVITATIONAL TROPHY

In September 2016 The Gage Players launched The Gage Invitational Trophy, a charity quiz championship held between a local grouping of a dozen amateur drama societies, known as The Public Forum.  We help to publicise each other’s events, enlarge our audiences and even share actors from time to time.

On 23rd September the first quiz was held.  Gatton Community Theatre were the winners, and our chosen charity on this occasion was The Invictus Choir, for whom we raised £150.00.  Congratulations all round.  Gatton now hold the trophy until the next event – watch this site for updates.  If you want to join the quiz but don’t belong to one of the drama groups, don’t worry – just get in touch with the contact person to see about fielding a team, or joining one.

  1. Is your theatre group looking for a production to perform in 2018?
    2018 is the centenary of women getting the vote in the UK.
    ‘Suffragettes’
    A new play by Paul King
    The play uses a mixture of drama, music, humour, and slides to tell the story of the suffragette movement (the Women’s Social and Political Union – WSPU) in the period between 1912 and the outbreak of WW1. There are three intertwined stories: the split within the Pankhurst family; the increasing level of suffragette bombing, arson and violence; and Emily Davison’s increasing desperation until her death at the 1913 Epsom Derby.
    To see the play in action there is a 7 minute video on You Tube:

    If you’re interested in finding out more about the play, a 20 page script sample is available from the author. A support package containing the slides and backing tracks for the three songs is also available.
