NEWS: 2019 Is Shaping Up To Be A Great Year For WTG

Off the back of our spring production, Sense & Sensibility, we can reveal that we sold the highest number of tickets in recent years, beating all other recent productions. This is no slight on the previous plays staged by the Guild over the past few years; it simply proves growth and encouragement for our group.

Producing Sense & Sensibility at the Old Court was a very fitting comeback. This venue is arguably our spiritual home where we last performed in 2006.

Onwards and upwards indeed – to the return of our summer Shakespeare, which is now almost fully cast.

We have attracted four new actors to the Guild – a very warm welcome to Daisy Shrimpton (a
recent YWTG member), Jenny Hazell, Rob Harris and Liam Tattershall. If you or anyone you know want to fill the roles of Egeus and Snug, get in touch.

Preparations for the autumn show at the Guildhall, After the Dance by Terrence Rattigan, are
proceeding well. Director Adrian Tang is our third new director this year and has provided the following synopsis:

Set in the mid-late 1930s, we are a fly-on-the-wall viewing the lives of the Scott-Fowlers in
their fashionable Mayfair penthouse apartment. David Scott-Fowler, being a successful writer, likes
to work hard and play hard. He and his wife Joan still enjoy the hedonistic days of the 1920s and
show no signs of slowing down. His younger brother Peter and partner Helen both try to coax them
out of their irresponsible ways, which leads to David forming a relationship with Helen. The scene is
set for betrayal, unrequited love and self-destruction.

Full details including audition dates will be given next month.
