Our Next Production - Nobody's Perfect by Simon Williams

Many of our patrons will recall the Player's production of Nobody's Fool in 2008. We now present a sequel with two of the original cast appearing im different roles to last time.

They are joined by two new recruits to Meopham Players - Sophie Payne and Carmel Deely - along with S. Sangha who has appeared in many Players' productions.

Storyline: Single father Leonard works at home as a statistician. He has a rebellious daughter whose difficult behaviour is further encouraged by his “growing old disgracefully” father who has come to live in their home. Leonard writes a romantic novel which wins first place in a competition and a substantial cash prize. There is one snag! The writing competition is only open to women authors! Leonard manages to overcome this problem with hilarious consequences which involve his father and daughter in much subterfuge!

Cast:

Leonard - John Winson

Gus - S. Sangha

Dee Dee - Sophie Payne

Harriett - Carmel Deely

Willy Briggs - Rodney Buckland

Leonard's father Gus meets Felicity Butters, a TV producer, in Nobody's Fool - a prequel staged by Meopham Players in May 2008

Box Office opens Monday 1st April

It's all over! (Oh, yes it is!)

Cast and crew - almost everyone
The Girls from Istead Rise

Move over Matt (in the Daily Telegraph), we have our own Matt.

Minimalist in style and contained within three panels, Matt's commentaries on Amateur Theatre are nevertheless full of life, beloved by our readers for their empathy, running jokes, satirical bent and resonant themes. (Well, that's what it says on the tin.)

Here's one from the archives...
