A murder, high stakes, shocking testimony and a young manís fight to escape the noose!! This thriller keeps you guessing till the very end.

The bar will be open and please bring a little something to add to the buffet table.

The following play reading will follow the Summer recess on Friday 28th September.

Play Selection

To all members, drama lovers, wordsmiths and those who would like an input into the types of plays we put on: we are forming a play selection sub-committee to try and streamline the process of choosing material. Those choices will be put to the full committee to form our future programme.
This will involve a lot of reading, both together and solo resulting in a presentation to aid the committee in choosing an exciting and balanced season of plays, hopefully with a longer lead time so all actors and crew members can plan their involvement and availability further in advance.

If you are interested in being involved in this exciting development please contact Sarah McCarthy 01206 395649 or



Following the success of our Junior Theatre Group, which has now been running for over a year, we are planning to start another group in September for thirteen to fifteen year olds. The group will meet on Thursday evenings at the Manifest Theatre from 6.30 to 7.30. There will be three terms a year in line with school terms. The cost will be £10.00 per term plus an annual membership fee of £5.00.

Anybody interested please contact Chris on 01473 328770 or 07860 328770 or email to
