The Gaddesden Society Drama Club

Drama Club

Following a very busy winter production and spring play readings, June, July and August are generally quiet months for club members to catch up with family, garden and possibly holiday. Several new people have joined the play reading group and this means that we have a wider range of plays to choose from.


Meanwhile the committee are planning for the production to come in November. ‘Dangerous Corner’ by J.B. Priestley will be directed by Nan Newberry and Jackie Tannett. The play is set in the 1930s. Robert and Freda Caplan are entertaining close friends/colleagues at their country house. A chance remark by one of the guests sparks the demand for the truth by Robert, with devastating consequences as clandestine relationships and secrets are then uncovered. We will have a read through at the June Play Reading (Wednesday, June 20th) and auditions will take place on Sunday, July 8th at 3.30pm. If you are interested in taking part, either on stage or behind the scenes, please contact Nan (843155) or Jackie and/or come along to the play reading and auditions.


Club members will be getting together for our AGM on Tuesday June 26th at 8.00pm in the village hall committee room. Under the LGDC constitution, committee members may serve only three years. Shaun McCarthy will have served his three-year tenure in the Chair, so there will be several changes to the committee and hopefully some new faces. There will be refreshments and the obligatory business which will be brief. Jackie & Nan will be happy to give an outline of the plot and production details. It is generally a very sociable meeting, and everyone is welcome.
