2008 Spring Triple Bill
a triple bill of one-act plays

where and when

 A B O U T


Pinter / Chekhov / Ayckbourn

This February Woodhouse Players gives you the chance to see three plays in one evening, by three of the biggest name playwrights this side of Shakespeare:

The Bear by Anton Chekhov is a high energy melodrama, as Smirnov comes to collect the debts he's owed by the beautiful widow Popova - this is an original translation by Woodhouse's own multilingual Basil Clarke. Between Mouthfuls is a comedy by Alan Ayckbourn - Britain's most prolific playwright - which takes us to a restaurant where two couples choose starters, main courses and see if they get to dessert. And finally One for the Road by Harold Pinter is a powerful and frightening piece about the state's power over others.

One for the Road contains some language which may not be suitable for children.
