What’s On

Our next production will be Entertaining Angels by Richard Everett, a play with sharp-edged comedy and probing wit.

20 to 23 November 2019

The profits from this production will be donated to Hartley’s Carers Café.

Entertaining Angels

This play is filled with sharp-edged comedy and probing wit. The Sunday Times said of the original production “Richard Everett has written a warm, glowing, serious comedy, like an Ayckbourn play finished by JM Barrie”, while the London Evening Standard described the play as a “very English comedy with some real emotion .. This is a sure-fire hit”.

As a clergy wife, Grace has spent a lifetime on her best behaviour. Now, following the death of her husband Bardolph, she is enjoying the new-found freedom to do and say exactly as she pleases. But the return of her eccentric missionary sister Ruth, together with some disturbing revelations, force Grace to confront the truth of her marriage.

Director: Andy Noakes.

Grace: Yvonne Hegarty
Ruth: Carol Arman-Addey
Jo: Sophia Gawor
Sarah: Cheryl de Bie
Bardolph: Martin Pickering

    Went to see Murder on Cue last night, my first ever attendance at a Hartley Players production. Absolutely brilliant! Well done to all the cast and crew.

  2. Jeff Loomes says:

    The play is beautifully crafted and therefore deserves, if not demands, a performance of at least equal merit. And, by gosh, it got it in the form of the Hartley Players November, 2018 production. My congratulations to the cast, director and production team, not forgetting the set designer and builders. Top marks to you all!

    This performance was of Premier league standard with the cast being the Man City of the Am Dram circuit. I have seen this play 4 times and this one excelled, from the set design to the courage of the cast to face the audience whilst miming the final scene, it was a superb production.

  4. The National Operatic and Dramatic Association’s representative enjoyed Twelfth Night. “The .. simple set worked well. Good use was made of part of the auditorium for entrances and exits. Backstage work was handled well, as was lighting. Costumes looked excellent and colourful against the black curtains.

    There were some strong performances from the leading characters. The rest of the cast were equally up to the challenge and the quality of acting was excellent throughout. Congratulations should go to all involved, especially Director Martin Pickering who can be justly proud of the way he brought Shakespeare to Hartley for the first time.

    We came to see Twelfth Night on 22 November 2014. Thank you Hartley Players for such an entertaining evening and well done on your first (I think!) venture into Shakespeare!!
