Upcoming Shows

October Production - Blue Stockings - Workshop & Auditions

Come along and join us to find out more about our October play at the Concordia Theatre, Blue Stockings by Jessica Swale.

This play tells the story of women’s fight for the right to graduate from Cambridge University. It is a heartwarming and dramatic show set against the backdrop of a rising suffragette movement and follows the stories of four women and their fight for acceptance and equality in a man’s world.

Come along to our first meeting on 28th April at 7pm in the theatre's rehearsal room to have a read, find out more about the characters and pick up audition pieces.

Everyone is welcome and auditions will take place the following Sun on 5th May. If you have any questions in the meantime please don’t hesitate to get in touch. Looking forward to seeing you there.
