Statement re Covid-19 situation

We regret to announce that due to the ongoing health emergency, all our activities are on hold until we are advised that it is safe to resume.  Watch this site for updates and Thursday throwbacks.


We're not being idle however.  Here is our first lockdown story for you to enjoy and we have started play readings on a Wednesday evening.  Message the website via the contact form if you would be interested in reading with us.

Thursday Throwback 9 July  2020

All the world's a stage

And all the men and women merely players. 

They have their exits and their entrances,

and one man in his time plays many parts

His act being seven ages.                                                 And that definitely applied to our dear departed friend Dennis


Our Curtain Raisers presented  this exciting new play as part of the NT Connections Festival 2020.  The play, especially commissioned and written by John Donnelly explores how careful we need to be with the language we use, and the resulting problems when we aren't.  Unfortunately the planned Partner Theatre Festival in Southampton , together with the Fesitval at the National Theatre were cancelled due to the pandemic.  However, you can see  some more of John Donnelly's writing on BBC iplayer, in episode one of BBC4s Unprecedented series.  A recommended watch.
