What’s On

Can’t Pay? Won’t Pay! by Dario Fo

Wednesday 15 to Saturday 18 November 2017 at 8pm
in Hartley Village Hall, Ash Road, Hartley, DA3 8EL
Tickets £10 (adults) and £8 (concessions)

This hilarious political farce centres on working class housewives who raid a supermarket, either taking the goods or paying a “fair price”, in protest against inflationary supermarket prices.

Antonia has taken take part in a revolt at the local supermarket and the play starts with her (and her friend Margherita who she met on her way home) trying desperately to hide the ‘liberated’ goods before their husbands and the police catch up with them.  Antonia’s husband Giovanni is a Communist shop steward and an upholder of law and order and would definitely not approve of his wife’s actions.  Crazy disasters and outrageous lies pile on top of each other as the two of them try to cope with the results of their own actions – without telling their husbands what they have been up to.  Phantom pregnancies, saints and curses are all invented to stop the police fingering the culprits.

Directed by Margaret Bown

Sergeant/Inspector/Old Man/Undertaker – Martin Pickering

    Came to see Calendar Girls on first night. What a triumph! I enjoyed every hilarious and sometimes emotional moment. Well done to the ladies of Knapely WI and supporting cast

    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!!

  5. 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.
