Plays, Pints and Pot Luck!

Our next Plays, pints and pot luck is on Friday 29th June at 7pm

We are reading Fings Ain't Wot They Used T'be by Frank Norman and Lionel Bart, a smash hit in the West End and on Broadway. Devised by Joan Littlewood's Theatre Workshop this raucous cockney musical brings alive vivid characters from the 50s East End. You can hear the Original Cast recording featuring Miriam Karlin and Barbara Windsor. This is a possibility to go into production in 2019 so come along and get a sneak preview!

We are hoping to make play readings a regular event so do come along and if you have any suggestions on material for the future they will be gratefully received.
