Report of the Headley Theatre Club's production of three one-act plays, November 1971

Report by Jo Fisher:

Three one-act plays presented by the Headley Theatre Club at the Village Hall on Saturday, provided good entertainment with the accent on comedy.

Two of the plays, "Sea Splash" and "The Party" were performed by the junior section of the theatre club and had both been written and produced by Lily Walsh who is a member of the Grayshott Stagers.

It was good to see the younger members of the club being able to take an active part as so many plays suitable for production by amateur dramatic groups have few juvenile roles. Stephen Cooper as Bob in "The Party" was exceptionally good.

The third play, "The Playgoers" by Arthur Pinero (performed by arrangement with Samuel French, Ltd.,) is a well known comedy set in the early part of this century. The characters were well cast and played their parts convincingly and in particular, Joe Wright as Gale, the odd man, was very good.
This was June [Joan?] Parkinson's first attempt at producing and she had incorporated some refreshing ideas.

The next event in the Theatre Club's calendar is the Christmas pantomime and this is to be the "Wizard of Oz." [in fact it appears that this never happened]
