ABOUT THE PLAYS

'Bletchley Girls' was to return to Gloucestershire in May, June 2020 following a sold out run at the 2018 Cheltenham premiere. Because of the coronavirus, the ten planned performances have been postponed till 2021. Originally called 'Secrets, Lies & Spies', the play is the previously untold true story of the critical role two young female codebreakers made at Bletchley Park. See the Performances section for details of the upcoming radio play. 

 

'The Parrot, the Poet, and the Philanderer', with David Elder.  An imagined meeting between Alfred Tennyson, Charles Dickens, and Elizabeth Barrett.  Performed to three full houses at the Cheltenham Heritage Open Days September 2017. 

 

'Rotten Luck', 2019. After a successful 2015 run, the play returned to full houses in 2019 as part of both the Gloucester History Festival and Cheltenham Heritage Open Days.

A hangman explores the question of the role fate and fortune play in the lives of two young prisoners. Three sold-out performances, Ed Shed, Gloucester.
