Home-based Play Reading Evenings

Wednesday 9th September at 7.30pm

Black Comedy by Peter Shaffer

Our popular Zoom play readings return from a short summer break.  Kay will be hosting Black Comedy by Peter Shaffer on Wednesday 9 September at 7.30pm.
*** Brindsley Miller, a young sculptor, and his debutante fiancée, Carol Melkett, have stolen some very expensive antiques from his neighbour Harold Gorringe, who is away for the weekend, to spruce up his normally slum-like apartment in order to impress Carol’s father and a wealthy prospective buyer named Georg Bamberger…. ***
You don’t have to read, you’re welcome to just listen.  There will be opportunities for chat and comfort breaks as well.  The second part of the play will be read the following Wednesday 16 September.


Please email contactus@horsellads.com for further details.

I think you’ll find that is less than 2 metres…

Please stay in touch via our Facebook page or email and let us know of any bright ideas for home-based get togethers!  There are lots of free, theatre-related resources currently available which we’ve posted on Facebook, for example improving your acting skills with the Royal Court’s Bitesize tutorials made for the BBC.



Do get in touch if you need help, advice or simply a chat. Look after yourselves and each other and hopefully we can resume activities in the near future.
