Between Love and Madness

From the Absurd to the Ridiculous
A triple bill of one-act plays

where and when

 A B O U T


In Spring 2009 Woodhouse Players take you from the Absurd to the Ridiculous.

First the absurdities of Government and the Press in new play - Machinery of Government - as a Government announcement spirals out of control.
Then Bear Hug by Robin French, a contemporary drama which throws a different light on the frustrations and absurdities of growing up when your parents really don't understand you.
Finally, things get ridiculous in Last Tango in Little Grimley by David Tristram - Little Grimley's desperate drama group are desperate for a play that sells, and one thing sells: sex, so that's what they're going to attempt to do. Couldn't get any more desperate than that!

Machinery of Government

Machinery of Government
by Sebastian Smith

The junior minister for health wants to make an announcement, a big announcement, the more impressive the better. Bill, Ben and their editor want to turn the Minister into a figure of fun, after all fun sells more papers. Who will win? Find out in Machinery of Government, another original play from the Woodhouse players.

Bear Hug

Bear Hug
by Robin French

Paranoid, anxious and alienated - and that's just how the parents feel. What about their son Michael? He's not well and it's going to take more than love and understanding to make him better.

Last Tango in Little Grimley

Last Tango in Little Grimley
by David Tristram

Little Grimley Amateur Dramatic Society is in trouble. The membership has dwindled to four - the audiences aren't much bigger - and if they don't come up with some rent money soon, they're going to be thrown out. "There's only one thing that sells tickets these days" argues Gordon the Chairman. "Sex!". Thus begins the chaotic and hilarious build-up to an evening of extraordinary home-grown drama - an evening the locals would never forget!
