Haddenham Players present Dangerous Corner by J B Priestley (by permission of Samuel French Ltd) at St Mary's CE School, Aston Road, Haddenham on Friday 27th and Saturday 28th March, at 7:30pm.
Tickets (£7.00) are available from 'Blooming Fruity' on Banks Parade or the Haddenham Community Library; or via the Box Office on 01844 291629; or at the door.
Dangerous Corner was first performed at the Lyric Theatre London on 17 May 1932. By this time Priestley was an established novelist and essayist. Dangerous Corner was, however, his first play. He wrote it in a week, to some extent to satisfy himself that he could write for the theatre.
Notwithstanding initial unfavourable reviews, the play went on to be a great success. It has been revived professionally several times, most recently last year, and has been filmed. It has now arrived in Haddenham.
As with all Priestley plays, and particularly the time plays, you must expect the unexpected.

Cables will go along BT ducts and poles where possible but some will be under pavements and verges. Each...
