“Run For Your Wife” is our next production and will be directed by Steve Clunn for performance in April.

Ray Cooney’s much – acclaimed fast moving farce tells of John Smith a London Cabbie with his own taxi, a wife in Streatham, a wife in Wimbledon – and a knife-edge schedule!

By keeping to this schedule he has managed to be a successful if not tired bigamist for the last three years.

One day he gallantly intervenes in a mugging and is taken to hospital with mild concussion. In the ensuing complications, aided by an unwilling Stanley, John tries bravely to cope with a succession of well-meaning but prying policemen, the press and two increasingly irate wives. He eventually manfully confesses the truth – but will anyone believe him!

Lunch – Walk – Tea!

Adults £7

The whole family can take part in this easy walk with a Murder Mystery theme.  It’s a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon in November. Come along to the clubhouse for soup and crusty bread to fortify you before you set off.  The circular walk will have you looking for clues in the places you visit, which will lead you to the identity of the Ember Sports Club murderer!

When you get back you can reward yourselves with tea and cakes. There will be prizes for all the successful sleuths. Bring friends and family – the more the merrier.

Glow Bowls!

A great idea for when the nights get darker towards the end of the season!

Glow Bowling at the Coorparoo Bowling Club, Australia.
