Author The Stage Hands

A Brand New Comedy
The final few hours before opening a show can be tense. However, when the actors for ‘Another Day in Paradise’ turn up to rehearsals late, have completely unrealistic demands and fall out with theatre’s staff, the show’s opening night starts to hang in the balance.
After having taken all the snide comments and complaints he can handle, the head technician decides he will take the production into his own hands once the curtain goes up. Together with the stage hands, he begins to make one too many ‘mistakes’.
The show must go on, but will the cast be able to pull the plot back together?
“A very assured production of a well-structured play by a promising playwright. A great evening, full of laughter and quite a few awkward flashes of recognition. This is a writer who really understands the trials and tribulations endured by the backstage crew.” - The Gulbenkian Theatre, Canterbury.

Tickets priced at £12 (matinee £10)
** Special Offer on Wednesday 3rd - 4 tickets for the price of 3 **
Please call the Box Office on 07845 260147

Author: Designed & Directed by David Luck The Cuffley VC

So what is all this about Cuffley and a VC?
Come along to Cuffley Hall from 3rd to 6th December and you will hear about the events that put Cuffley on the map and won a Victoria Cross for Lt. William Leefe Robinson in September 1916.
This unique musical drama, specially written for COS, honours the life of William Leefe Robinson (Billie) and follows the events before, during and after he shot down the SL11 Zeppelin on the night of 2nd September 1916 – the first of the German airships to be shot down over London by the Royal Flying Corps.
Although widely reported by official sources at the time, and for several years after the event, as a Zeppelin, in reality it was a Schutte Lanz – a smaller airship but still 575 feet long and 66 feet wide. (175 x 20 Metres)
You will begin to understand the impact of Billie’s daring deed upon Cuffley and local areas during World War 1; you will join the Eley Cartridge Factory women in Edmonton where incendiary cartridges were developed and you will experience the inquest – held at the Plough Pub – and the local events that followed. You will also hear what happened to Billie when the Red Baron’s Flying Circus shot him down!
A musical drama, devised and designed to entertain and enlighten! The show will include music and dances of the time, all selected to reflect the period and storyline of the piece. Many of the numbers, written between 1900 and 1920, have been revived over the years; you may recognise ‘I Love a Piano’, ‘12th Street Rag’, ‘The Sunshine of Your Smile’ and many more!
So, put the date in your diary, come along and learn a little of the history of our village and how it is entwined with Suttons Farm (Hornchurch), the Eley Cartridge Factory (Edmonton), Enfield, Essendon, Potters Bar, Stanmore and India! Take yourself along East Ridgeway and view the memorial, find our local street named after Billie and the model of the airship, and perhaps stop by The Plough – now a restaurant/pub!
We can promise you an exciting and entertaining evening!

London. 1920s. The height of civilised society. Where husbands are husbands and wives are... constant. Constance is calm, intelligent and self-aware. Her husband, a successful Harley Street Doctor is being unfaithful with her best friend. Her friends know. Her sister knows. Even her mother knows. But what they don't know is that Constance knows about it too, but is dealing with it in her own deliciously devilish way. Revenge hath no fury like a modern woman scorned.
This is Maugham’s 1920s drawing romm comedy of marital manners when women (and men) of the era start to rethink the notions of love, marriage and social convention.
‘An entertaining comedy of manners.’ The Guardian

Author: Written by Shelagh Stephenson
Directed by Richard Colley
The Memory of Water

The Memory of Water by Shelagh Stephenson was first staged in 1996 at the Hampstead Theatre. It was received well and subsequently transferred to the West End where it went on to win an Olivier Award for Best Comedy in 2000.
On the eve of their mother’s funeral three sisters meet at the family home. In the highly charged atmosphere of the occasion, conflicts of the family past converge and everyday lies and tensions reveal the particular patterns and strains of family relationships.
The play might best be described as a tragicomedy. It is certainly comic in the sense that there are many extremely humorous interchanges between the characters and some exceedingly funny lines but the overall tone of the play moves beyond pure comedy and has considerable dramatic depth.
The major theme of the play is the nature of memory. The play focuses on the reflections by the three sisters on the way their mother brought them up. The inevitable review of the years that have passed between the sisters that unfolds during the course of the play relies on memory, memory which is often faulty and coloured by subsequent experiences. The act of remembering and the nature of forgetfulness are significant themes of the play.
Alongside the three sisters there are three other characters in the play. The mother appears as a spectre to just one of her daughters and this meeting contributes to the play’s exploration of the nature of memory. Further plot development both tragic and comic is aided by the male partners of two of the sisters.

Author: Clive Francis Our Man In Havana

Our Man in Havana is a comic novel by Graham Greene, set in Cuba pre-Castro. James Wormold, a vacuum cleaner retailer, is approached by Hawthorne, who offers him work for the British secret service. Wormold's wife had left him and now he lives with his sixteen year-old beautiful, devoutly Catholic but materialistic and manipulative daughter Milly. Since Wormold does not make enough money to pay for Milly's extravagances, he accepts the offer of a side job in espionage. But because he has no information to send to London, Wormold fakes his reports using information found in newspapers and invents a fictitious network of agents. Clive Francis has adapted the novel into a play with four actors, who play a total of 41 roles between them, from the named parts above to nuns, strippers and the Queen. This makes it a brilliant challenge for director and actors alike. The play is written for three male actors and one female actor.

Members of Copythorne Amateur Theatrical Society (CATS), having put on ‘Oh! What a Lovely War’ in the summer, are now busy presenting an upbeat version of Jack and the Beanstalk, one of the favourites in the pantomime repertoire. It contains all the classic ingredients— dame, giant, semi-hero Jack, the cow, the goose, a real live baddy, a beanstalk, a spider, a fairy—and, of course, a beautiful princess. That’s just for starters; you’ve got a few more zany characters turning up to enliven the story. Jack, of course, gets his girl (as in every pantomime), the baddy runs out of magic (Oh! Yes, she does) and …well, come and see for yourselves what happens. We’d love to see you there.

Author: Steven Berkoff East

As you will know Berkoff is a practitioner that is widely studied by A-level and degree students and this performance embraces all the techniques Berfkoff was passionate about. The piece is both physical and utilises the language that Berkoff writes to enhance the characterisation and performance.
The performance is produced in traverse, the space is intimate so that audience feel part of the piece and are not mere spectators.
East is "a play of boundless vitality. A piece of roller-coasting invention... Its two central characters are a couple of razor-happy randy tearaways of almost total moral repellence and absolute physical charm. The ‘East’ referred to is the East End territory of toughs Les and Mike (‘we sworn mates were once the deadly poison of each other’s eye’), local vamp ‘Sylv’, as well as the hapless Mum and Dad. Violence becomes language, just as the actors become objects – as when Les turns into a motorbike and Mike rides him: ‘I streak past those ponces and hairdressers in Minis, Sprites, MGs, menswear salesmen … or ancient Cadillacs driven by aging movie stars cruising for rough trade’.
Berkoff razzle-dazzles their lifestyle in a tumult of imagery; the language flashes from Shakespearean parody to the shatteringly profane... “Restores one's faith and fills the cup of expectation to overflowing".
Followers of our group will remember the amazing performances of Kevin, James and Lisa in last season’s performance of ‘Bronte’, whilst Anthony and Hugh provided strong performances in our production of ‘A Christmas Carol’. All of these have also provided excellent performances in our most recent production of Sue Townsend’s ‘The Queen & I’, adapted by our own Anthony L. Church.
NB. This play contains strong language and sexual references that may offend some people.

Cinderella

Straight after the festive period, Dereham Theatre Company returns with its annual celebrated and multi award-winning Christmas pantomime.
Big on laughs, this imaginative new version of the classic, Cinderella, which has won numerous awards, comes complete with all the fun of the panto!
When her father, the Baron, marries into money (or so he thinks), Cinderella finds herself at the mercy of her new step-mother and her two ugly step-sisters, who reduce her to a life of drudgery and toil. Her only friend is Buttons, Hardship Hall’s endearing, but slightly dim page boy. Meanwhile Prince Charming intends to throw a grand ball, at which he intends to find a wife. Could a chance meeting in the forest between him and Cinderella be the start of something beautiful? Or will the Ugly Sister’s scupper her chances of going to the ball?
With loads of originality, audience participation, slapstick routines and traditional business,
