Billingshurst Dramatic Society

1941 - 2016    75 years old and still going strong!

New Year Social 



Tuesday 14th January

Six Bells, High Street @ 8pm

Join us for a social play reading at The Six Bells, High Street, Billingshurst from 8pm on Tuesday 14th January.

We'll be reading "Cold Comfort Farm" adapted from Stella Gibbons's novel by Paul Doust.

Orphan Flora Poste, heroine of Gibbons's tongue-in-cheek classic novel, likes everything to be tidy and comfortable so when she goes to live with her eccentric relatives at Cold Comfort Farm she tries to alter her surroundings and encourage others to greater things. But this proves difficult ...

February Production - Change of Date!

February 2020 Production
"Snowed Under" & "Gosforth's Fete"

Wednesday 19th, Friday 21st & Saturday 22nd February

PLEASE NOTE - there will NOT be a performance on Thursday 20th February, but the performance will be rescheduled to Wednesday 19th February.

If you didn't get a chance to see our entry of the one act play "Snowed Under" by Anne-Marie Latter at the West Chiltington Drama Festival this summer (pictured above), it will be reprised in February with the same cast.

The library is snowed in, stranding librarians Brenda and Sue along with one of their regular customers, Mr Whitely, for whom, as rescuers are awaited, there are surprising and dire consequences.

In addition, Caro will be directing another one act play, "Gosforth's Fete" by Alan Ayckbourn.

Forming part of Alan Ayckbourn's "Confusions", this hilarious play can be performed without the other four in the series. It is set at a village fete, and things aren't running quite as smoothly as they should. A temperamental PA system, an incontinent tea urn, and a thunder storm give the five characters much more than they bargained for when agreeing to run the fete.

There won't be food at this production, but we will have a licenced cash bar.

The plays will start at the usual time of 7:45pm, and tickets will be £10, available from Mansell McTaggart in the High Street (CASH only), or online via WeGotTickets.

Further details will follow as soon as the box office is open. Please keep an eye on this website for updates, and further newsletters if you are a subscriber.
