Play Selection 2019-2020


The penultimate part of the Play Selection process this year has taken the form of presentations from the Directors who have put plays forward for consideration. These presentations – to the members on our regular Tuesday evening sessions at The Mill Arts Centre – have been varied and interesting and, more importantly, provided valuable information regarding the concepts for each production.

Each play was voted on by the members in attendance (25 to 30 per night). The vote was a straightforward Yes/No as to whether the play should be considered.

Following are the Yes/No percentages for each play:

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-timeChrissie Garrett89%7%
The Thrill of LoveTara Lacey82%18%
Nell GwynneClare Lester79%21%
A Murder is AnnouncedLiz Riley74%26%
Goodnight, Mr TomClare Lester74%26%
The Woman who Cooked her HusbandChrissie Garrett71%29%
One Man, Two Guv’norsRob Hall66%28%
