On the face of it Nora’s marriage to Torvald Helmer is idyllic and life is looking good as Torvald has recently been promoted to Bank Manager. Nora clearly loves her husband and, whilst Torvald expresses deep love for his wife, it is also clear that he regards her as an empty-headed plaything. She is his Trophy wife, his doll-wife.
Set in 1879, A Doll’s House defines the typical patriarchal society of that time which the play startlingly turns on its head as all the characters reveal their own complexities.
Presented by WTW and directed by Joy Haynes the play will be performed at the The Woodclyffe Hall 24th -27th October and tickets will be on sale from September 9th.
9th to 12th May 2018

Using the tales of The Brothers Grimm, we are guided through the stories of childhood adventure with Prince Hansel and Princess Gretel.
Running away from their murdering, yet well-intentioned parents, the siblings meet the witch who fattens and cooks children and the father who desperately wants one daughter more than his many sons.
While Gretel must outwit a handsome stranger, Hansel meets the devil and has to escape from Hell.
These stories are dark and at times funny, there are gruesome deaths and maiming and lots of blood. Lots, in a fairy tale type way.
Yet the voice of the narrator, breaking in with frequent warnings and advice makes it all great fun.
Wargrave Youth Theatre and Junior Workshop present “Tales Dark and Grimm” at the Woodclyffe Hall, Saturday 18 November Performances 2pm and 4pm. Sunday 19 November Performance 2pm. Adults £6.00, Children £4.00
25 to 28 October 2017
Ten Times Table by the ever popular playwright, Alan Ayckbourn, produced and directed by Mike Watt, with Dave Robinson as Stage Manager.
This farcical comedy follows the course of a well meaning but fractious committee of local residents endeavouring to organise a pageant in their local community.
Looking back at recent events within our own community, you may just recognise a similarity with one or two of the characters in this play, although for legal reasons we must make it clear that, of course all of the characters in this production are entirely fictitious!!
As ever, we would also welcome volunteers to assist in supporting this production from costuming, make-up, set building, lighting and sound, through to Front of House and bar.
Tickets are on sale from Monday 11th September.
Fancy getting on stage but not sure you can learn the lines? Many of our members took their first steps on our stage. We are happy to support new members and there are walk-on parts with no words that give you the chance to have a go, or you can come along to our play reading nights and help to choose future productions.
Interested in costumes? We need help to run our large costume store and source all the costumes for shows. Actors need help to get into and out of costumes – think Panto – and you don’t need to be able to sew.
Interested in journalism, digital marketing, poster design, PR or web sites? There are many opportunities to get involved in this crucial work.
Interested in make-up? We need a team of people to help actors with make-up before each show.
Do you DIY? Could you help to build a set? Want to learn the specific art of painting sets for the stage? We can show you how.
Do you like the idea of helping with lighting, music or sound effects for a show? You could join our team.
