We are an amateur theatre group in Pinner, in the London Borough of Harrow, half an hour by tube from Baker Street. If you are interested in taking part in amateur drama, whether as an actor or helping back stage, please explore our site and contact us for further information. All newcomers are very welcome! If you have talent, we'll help you find it. Have a look at our past productions. If you would like to be added to our mailing list to receive flyers for our forthcoming productions, by post or by email, email us.
Come to our play readings!
"You must join an amateur dramatic society," his doctor prescribed. "There you'll meet all sorts of people under the pleasantest conditions, and you'll find the world isn't nearly as bad as you think". An article in a 1950 edition of John Bull magazine.
Here are some of our programmes from 1936 onwards. They give a flavour of the plays we produced over the years during wartime and peace time, the members who performed in them and the local shops and traders who advertised in our programmes. In the early years one of our Vice Presidents was J.B. Priestley.
Our November 2019 production consisted of three short comedies. Our February 2020 production was Our Town by Thornton Wilder. Our May 2020 production was to have been the Neil Simon comedy-drama Lost In Yonkers. We eventually performed it in June 2021.
Lost In Yonkers by Neil Simon
Thursday 24 and Friday 25 June 2021
Our first on-stage production since February 2020. Our Village Hall is a COVID-secure venue and seating capacity was limited.
Set in Yonkers, New York in 1942, the play is the 1991 Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize winning coming-of-age story centred around two brothers, Arty and Jay. They are sent by their travelling salesman father Eddie to live with their stern German grandmother, who lives in Yonkers, after their mother died. Also living with them is their childlike aunt Bella and uncle Louie, a gangster. Over the course of this moving, bittersweet comedy, the young boys learn lessons about life, love, responsibility and the importance of family that will carry them into adulthood.
