Our Next Production - A Letter from The General by Maurice McLoughlin

- produced and directed by Linda O'Byrne

The time is 1950 and the place is a Far Eastern country. A violent revolution has brought chaos and all foreigners are being imprisoned, even shot. The five nuns at the mission are waiting to hear their fate, fearing they may have to leave, but with one slight hope of reprieve. The General of the Army was once an orphan boy at the mission and the elderly Sister Magdalene is his godmother. She has written for his help. But before he can reply, visitors arrive. The British Consul and his wife and a troop of soldiers, led by the vicious Captain Lee, who is hunting for a German priest who has escaped the General’s prison.

Welcome to new members of our cast - Toni Holmes and Lee Cogger. They are joined by Sylvia Stickings, Brenda Ogden, Patrick Carty, Maureen Gardner, Diana Dixon, Geoff Sullivan and Anne Horrocks

A Letter from The General is at the Village Hall, Meopham from 24th to 26th October 2019. Bookings can be made online here, by calling 08442 889 708 or by email to from 17th September.

Nobody's Perfect - in retrospect

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.)
