Spring Double Bill

Spring Double Bill
Two one-act plays with an interval inbetween

where and when

 A B O U T

For 2010 Woodhouse Players make a change from previous years and move from a Triple Bill to a Double Bill - two one act plays separated by an interval.

The Real Inspector Hound

The Real Inspector Hound
by Tom Stoppard

Birdboot and Moon, two critics of unequal esteem, have come to watch and review the latest 'who-dun-it'. With one suffering from an inferiority complex and the other more concerned with the up-and-coming young actresses, the play is not the main focus of their attention.

Featuring Tom Stoppard's trademark 'play within a play', The Real Inspector Hound ironically mocks the competitive world of theatre and the classic murder mystery genre. As the plot thickens, our critics find themselves more deeply involved in the action on stage than they had expected.

Still Life

Still Life
by NoŽl Coward

Set in the refreshment room of Milford Junction railway station we see a chance encounter between Alec and Laura, as he removes a piece of grit from her eye, develop against the backdrop of interwar Britain. Both separately married, we see a growing love struggle against the middle-class restraint of the duty-bound Alec and Laura.

A colourful array of supporting characters each try their own hand at romance, with varying results!

This short play was developed into the Classic film Brief Encounter directed by David Lean starring Celia Johnson and Trevor Howard.
