Lechlade Players bring us a trio of treats!

Lechlade Players rehearse ‘Ladies Man’ 2017

The Lechlade Players are returning for this Special Seventieth Anniversary Festival with a trio of treats for us!  Yes that’s right, they have three plays to entertain us with!  Everyone at hjHQ can’t wait to see what we know will be three fantastic pieces.

Andy Pritchard, director and actor at Lechlade Players got in touch to tell us all about it!

‘Following a very successful run at the Festival last year, winning plaudits including the BBC Audience Award and those for best actor and actress, (read more HERE and HERE) the Lechlade Players are represented this year by no less than three plays, from different elements of the group’s membership.

We’ve therefore been very busy – especially as since the last Festival we’ve lost our long-term venue to a fire and had to create a completely new one in conjunction with fabulous local partners, The Trout Inn, who now host our shows in their riverside marquee on a regular basis.

We’ve entered a modern play, ‘The Dreaming’ by Richard James, as well as two early one-acts by the master of French farce, Georges Feydeau. They’ve been greatly enjoyed by the casts in rehearsal and we hope the 70th anniversary Festival audiences like them too. We’re thrilled to once again be part of this great competition.’

We’re thrilled too Andy and we salute all your hard work and dedication after what has been a difficult year for your group. Great to hear The Trout Inn in Lechlade has come up trumps and we have to say, basing yourselves in a pub sounds like a genius idea!

Lechlade Players will be performing ‘Ladies Man’ on Thursday 30th March, ‘The Dreaming’ on Friday 31st March and ‘Mixed Doubles’ on Saturday 1st April.  Don’t miss out – get your tickets today!
