Two Play Reading Groups who ‘perform’ both comedy and drama
Play Reading 1
Meets: 2nd & 4th Tuesday of the Month
Time: 09:45 – 12:00
The Play reading group meets to read published plays both comedy and drama by authors such as Henrick Ibsen, Alan Aykebourne and Agatha Christie.
The play sets are taken out on loan from the Performing Arts Library which is housed in Denbies Vineyard in Dorking, having an extensive collection of plays, music and books relating to the arts.
Plays are chosen for the correct number of characters to give everyone a part, although sometimes ‘doubling’ (taking two parts) is necessary.
Each of us has a book and takes it in turn to ‘produce’ a play, giving out the individual roles to the assembled cast.
‘Performing’ isn’t really the right description for what we do but we try to inject some life into the script to make it lively and entertaining, and after getting through dozens of plays we haven’t yet run out of the supply or enthusiasm!
