The revolution is brutally quelled, and Marius is rescued by Jean Valjean. Javert, who had been taken captive by the revolutionaries, is released by Valjean, but unable to comprehend this kind behaviour from someone who he viewed as evil, Javert takes his own life. Marius and Cosette are finally given permission to marry, and Valjean gives them a diary telling his life story....

30 May - 8 June 2019

Evita is one of the most celebrated musicals of all time.

Winning 7 Tony Awards in its first year on Broadway, the show features songs including “A New Argentina”, “Another Suitcase in Another Hall”, “High Flying Adored” and “Don’t Cry For Me Argentina”.
Epic in its scope, ambition and stature, Evita was a ground-breaking musical when it made its debut in 1978. In the intervening years it has lost none of its power to move audiences and sweep them up into the whirlwind life and extraordinary story of one of the most charismatic figures of the late 20th Century.

5th - 8th June 2019

They said it was... UNSTAGEABLE
They said it was... UNACHIEVABLE
They said it was... IMPOSSIBLE in today’s financial climate.
But we’re going ahead and doing it anyway!
Based on the timeless story from one of the best-selling books of the nineteenth century, the Southwick Players present this rip roaring comedy stage adaptation, which condenses the epic tale so that it can be told by just seven (7) actors.
We follow an amateur theatre troupe as they produce the massive tale of the fictional Jewish prince and merchant Judah Ben-Hur.
He falls low as a galley slave and rises to become a champion charioteer within Jerusalem during the life of Jesus Christ...
All while the actors struggle along through the piece as rivalries form and offstage romances interfere.
Complete with chariot race, sea battle, and stage combat, Patrick Barlow weaves his compressed style popularized by The 39 Steps into one of the largest stories ever told.

When Lizzie met Maggie. What might have happen when two female icons of the twentieth century were forced into each other’s company? Handbagged is a sharply comic imagining of the fictional relationship between Queen Elizabeth who vowed to serve society and Margaret Thatcher who allegedly denied society’s existence. With such apparently contrasting beliefs, could there be anything other than tension between the two?

26 to 29 June, 2019 7:30pm

SDC’s production of Flare Path by Terence Rattigan will mark end of RAF’s centenary year

Rattigan’s play is a tribute to the collective spirit of wartime bomber crews and their partners, and drew on his own wartime experiences as a gunner and Flight Lieutenant in Coastal Command.

Set in the residents’ lounge of a small Lincolnshire hotel during 1941, a place where the RAF pilots and crews would ‘hang out’ before and after raids, the core of the play concerns a personal dilemma between three characters - Peter Kyle, a successful Hollywood actor whose star is about to wane, his former lover the young actress Patricia Warren and her husband Flight Lieutenant Teddy Graham DFC.

Although it was Patricia who initiated the break-up with Peter, she finds that she still has strong feelings for him, and his unexpected appearance at the hotel forces her to face up to the conflict of her emotions and decide who needs her more – the former lover who is afraid of what his future holds or her pilot husband, whose breezy manner is a veneer to cover his shattered nerves.

Commenting on the play, director Rosalind Garrard said: “Flare Path was first performed in 1942 in London at a time when there was constant attack by enemy aircraft, but nevertheless it drew large audiences who felt a close affinity with the characters in the play and it enjoyed a long and successful run. The plot reveals how the contained emotions, typical of the British at that time, underpinned the strength of the air crew who routinely risked their lives on every mission, as well as those who remained behind. The story also shows up what love and loyalty can really mean in what were extraordinary conditions".
