Cheques are preferred and should be made payable to 'Sheila Herring.' It is possible to obtain a credit provided a minimum of two days' notice of a cancellation is given.

If transport is a problem, it is usually possible to find a driver with a spare seat. Most people drive to the 'Park and Ride' and take the bus either directly to the theatre (alight at the bridge) or into the town centre. There is no charge for the 'Park and Ride' if you have a bus pass. Sheila will be seated in the theatre foyer prior to each performance to hand out tickets. The bus stop to return to the 'Park and Ride' is a few yards to the left of the zebra crossing on the main road.

Tickets have been reserved for the following productions in the Autumn/Winter 2019 season.

Relatively Speaking Thursday 19th September

Greg and Ginny are living together. Ginny is keen to marry Greg, but with unfamiliar slippers under the bed and a delivery of flowers and chocolates, Greg is becoming suspicious that he is not the only man in her life. When Ginny says she is visiting her parents, a dizzying series of misunderstandings unravel into chaotic comedy in this brilliantly constructed play – Ayckbourn’s first big West End hit.

Breaking the Code Thursday 17th October

At the height of the Second World War eccentric genius Alan Turing was breaking the complex German code, Enigma, at Bletchley Park. Since his work was classified top secret for years after the war, no one knew how much was owed to him when he was later put on trial and publicly humiliated by the revelation of his sexuality. Hugh Whitemore’s compelling play intertwines an account of Turing’s most heroic hour with that of his betrayal by the nation he had helped in its darkest hour. Turing’s story went on to be told in the 2014 Oscar-winning film The Imitation Game, starring Benedict Cumberbatch.

Blood Wedding Thursday 20th February 2020

A Wiltshire village, 2019. Rob and his fiancée Georgie are checking out the village hall for their wedding reception. They think it’s ideal, but Rob’s mum isn’t so sure and wonders if they are rushing into things. Just when they begin to talk her round, a school friend of Georgie’s turns up, along with an old flame who could shatter the wedding plans. Very soon Georgie’s past is making her question who really is the love of her life. Barney Norris’s explosive retelling of Lorca’s classic tragedy sets the action firmly in a modern day village community that’s rocked by revelations and gossip. His previous plays include Echo’s End (Salisbury Playhouse), Nightfall (The Bridge Theatre, London) and The Remains of the Day.
