“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!

The Ember Players Present…Ladies Day! Book Now!

ladies-day-ember-players294
 
Ladies Day”   17th – 19th November inclusive
 
Our November production at the Cecil Hepworth Playhouse in Walton is Ladies Day.
Elaine Sesemann is doing a fantastic job in her directing debut and rehearsals are going really well.
The play is a delightful heart warming comedy which looks at the lives of 4 Yorkshire women (Pearl, Shelley, Jan and Linda) who work in a fish processing factory in Grimsby. Pearl is about to retire and lets slip that she has always wanted to go to Royal Ascot, Ladies Day which happens to be at York racecourse in 2005 when our play is set.
At the racecourse, chance encounters with lost purses, TV announcers, jockeys and lost loves allows an insight into the regrets, hopes and shattered dreams of the women who are all searching for a better and more fulfilling life than the dull lives they actually lead.  It is a bitter sweet, poignant modern fairy tale which will leave the audience with a smile on their faces and tears in their eyes, and all the better for having met Pearl, Linda Shelley and Jan!
The Box Office will open at 9am on Saturday 15th October. Ticket price is £13 and the performance dates are Thursday 17th, Friday 18th and Saturday 19th November at 8pm.
Venue:  at the Cecil Hepworth Playhouse, Hurst Grove, Walton-on-Thames, Surrey, KT12 1AU.
The online booking address is www.ticketsource.co.uk/emberplayers

This is one NOT to be missed, after all who would not want a glamorous time at the races on a November day?

Bowls Social Evening

On Saturday Ember hosted a hardy band of bowlers who braved the cold to come down to the clubhouse to listen to music, eat, drink and have a good chat to see what everybody had been up to during the closed season. A great night!
Thanks especially to the members who cooked, organised, manned the bar, washed up, dished out the food and drove out to the takeaway for a lovely Indian curry!
