Tudor Players presents
The Flint Street Nativity
By Tim Firth
Tuesday 13th – Saturday 17th February, 7.15pm
First presented in 2010, Tudor Players are delighted to revive this warm, witty and very funny play, an ideal alternative to the usual Christmas fayre with original lyrics set to the usual Christmas tunes.  You may never see your child’s Nativity play in the same light!
Mizzis Horrocks’ class of seven year olds is about to perform their nativity play at Flint Street Junior School for the proud mums and dads – and the occasional social worker.  Squabbles arise when Gabriel wants to play Mary, the Star grumbles he’s not a proper star like they have at NASA, Herod won’t stop waving to his mum and dad and the subversive Innkeeper is determined to liven up the traditional script.  And then the stick insect escapes…

Tudor Players presents
A Bunch of Amateurs
By Ian Hislop & Nick Newman
Tuesday 15th – Saturday 19th May, 7.15pm
Written by Ian Hislop and Nick Newman, this terrific comedy is packed with killer comic dialogue with plenty of twists and turns.
Keen to boost his flagging career, fading Hollywood action hero Jefferson Steele arrives in England to play King Lear in Stratford – only to find that this is not the birthplace of the Bard, but a sleepy Suffolk village.  And instead of Kenneth Branagh and Dame Judi Dench, the cast are a bunch of amateurs trying to save their theatre from developers.  Jefferson’s monstrous ego, vanity and insecurity are tested to the limit by the enthusiastic am-dram thespians.
“an evening of fine old-fashioned farcical fun”
“a hilarious witty comedy that had the audience laughing out loud from the very beginning”
