03 May Third Week in August
With the bank holiday weekend about to start, spare a thought for us while you sun yourself on the beach, enjoy your BBQ and refuse to let the Great British Rain Off stop you enjoying the break, as we will be working hard to build the set for our next production, Peter Gordon’s Third Week in August.
We are now only two weeks away from opening night, with the play being presented from 15 – 17 May 2019, so it will be all hands on deck for members and friends of the society, in order to build the caravans, grow the bushes and paint the sky – preferably blue, instead of British Grey!
The play follows six characters all visiting a run-down campsite by the coast and how their relationships develop – friends or otherwise! Sue just wants a ‘get away from everybody’ holiday, but didn’t count on inadequate caravaner, Neville who, when not battling his wife, has to deal with his difficult sister-in-law. Then enthusiastic Tony arrives with his complaining girlfriend, Jenny, reluctantly in tow and things start to get complicated, so Neville decides a communal barbeque is required…
Tickets are available now from the Box Office, either by calling 01923 227392 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org; there will also be tickets available on the door if you are more spontaneous. As usual, tea and coffee will be available at the interval and Henderson Hub staff will be manning the bar for those who would prefer something a little stronger. Doors open at 19:00 and the show will start at 19:45.
If you have never been to one of our productions, the show will be presented at The Henderson Memorial Hall, High Street, Abbots Langley, with a large car park available that has more than enough spaces.
For those of you who are regulars, you can be forgiven for thinking we have the dates wrong for this production, but they are correct. On this occasion, the final round of the FA Cup will be dominating the weekend, meaning that audiences and members alike will be distracted by Watford FC’s performance. So, the shows on this occasion will be Wednesday to Friday; if this proves popular with audience members, then this will be considered as a permanent adjustment for future productions.

We hope to see you all there!
