Pump House CYT presents:

Dungeness

A one act play, part of the National Theatre Connections programme.

Fifty years on from the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality in England, Chris Thompson wanted to write a play about the struggles and the joy of being gay. In a remote part of the UK, where nothing ever happens, a group of teenagers share a safe house for LGBT+ young people. While their shared home welcomes difference, it can be tricky for self-appointed group leader Birdie to keep the peace.

The group must decide how they want to commemorate an attack that happened to people like them in a country far away. How do you take to the streets and protest if you’re not ready to tell the world who you are? If you’re invisible, does your voice still count? A play about love, commemoration and protest.

Pump House Theatre Company presents:

Rickmansworth Players presents:

Far from the Madding Crowd

Far From The Madding Crowd is a vibrant insight into life in Dorchester and Thomas Hardy’s England. We are transported along the road by the journey of the beautiful Bathsheba Everdene, probably the first great feminist role in the theatre, as she fights to be independent in a man’s world and deal with three very different suitors and a huge farm that she inherits.

Thomas Hardy’s epic tale of love, tragedy, desire and regret was specially adapted for the English Touring Theatre by Mark Healy and this production will tell the iconic story through vivid stage effects, powerful scenes, wonderful dancing and movement and spectacular music from the period.

Featuring a talented cast, Rickmansworth Players are proud to present a theatrical adaptation of this fascinating story, which is not to be missed.
