Woman in Mind
Congratulations on an excellent NODA review for our April 2023 show Ayckbourn's 'Woman in Mind': "most thought provoking and the cast ,..under praiseworthy direction, presented a secure, well rehearsed piece." "Sam Myers gave a magnificent performance as Susan."
Woman in Mind is a razor-sharp tragicomedy about a vicar's wife on the outer edge of sanity whose vivid fantasy family life starts to compensate for the dry desert of her marriage. Neglected by her husband and forced to endure the unbearable cooking of his sister, the action depicts a frowsy Englishwoman’s increasingly delusional, frequently hilarious, often deeply moving and hopeless breakdown into psychosis.
Woman In Mind was directed by Cathy Hudson.
Cast: Samantha Myers, Stuart Evans, Elaine Kingston, Ian Creese, Finton McCluskey, Steve Black, Charlotte Coulson and Graham Budd.

Curtain Up on Murder
Our Autumn production in 2022 brought murder to the stage at Cobham. An amateur drama company is rehearsing at the theatre at the end of the pier. Storms rage overhead and the doors are locked – they’re trapped! Then a mysterious, ghostly presence passes across the stage, and when the Assistant Stage Manager falls to certain death through a trapdoor, the remaining actors are thrown into disarray. The panic increases when one of the actresses is poisoned and it becomes evident that a murderer is in their midst...
