Haddenham Players 16

Haddenham Players' latest production had their audience in stitches on Friday and Saturday night, 8th & 9th November. A capacity audience at St Mary's CE School on both evenings enjoyed two highly amusing and engaging plays.

The first offering was an Agatha Christie spoof, "Miss Glossop Comes to Tea" by Stuart Ardern. Dee Pizzo, a newcomer to Haddenham Players, delivered a wonderful Miss Glossop, (a "Miss Marple" character) who did her best to assist the enthusiastic but incompetent police inspector when one of her oldest friends was bumped off during a visit.

"It'll be alright on the night!" maybe a rather overworked cliche, but the opening night was the first time the whole cast had performed the entire play together! Despite this, they did an amazing job — a credit to Tom and Joy Chisholm, Director and Production Assistant respectively.

The second short play was "Just the Two of Us" by Ros Moruzzi, a comedy exploring the complications of donor fertilisation and its effect on happy family life when the offspring from that anonymous donation comes knocking at the front door some 15 years later! Becky Cook was the wonderfully irritating and self-centred teenager who arrived to bring havoc to the settled domestic lives of Matt & Ruth Kominski, played with great skill by Gary McCarron and Gill Harvey. A tightly managed and delightfully executed production, thanks again to Gary McCarron, with assistance from Kim Biddulph.

Haddenham Players will be casting a panto, "The Three Musketeers", on Thursday 14th November, at 7.30pm in the Methodist Church on the High Street in Haddenham.
