Laburnum Grove  
by JB Priestley
Directed by Robert Laycock

George Redfern is a respectable and reliable man. Everyone thinks so. He is a family man and lives in the quiet suburban Laburnam Grove where, his daughter complains, nothing ever happens. One evening  his daughter’s soon-to-be fiancé, and his brother in law intend to borrow money from the seemly affluent George, that is, until George calmly explains where his money comes from and he might just be a criminal mastermind.

Sunday 24 July 2pm:  
Burnt Piano 
by Justin Fleming
Directed by Robert Laycock

Never performed in the UK, Burnt Piano by Australian playwright Justin Fleming is the touching story of Karen; born under the star of Waiting for Godot. She attempts to make sense of tragic events in her life by tracking down the one man on earth she believes can help her: the aged Irish playwright Samuel Beckett now living in Paris.
