Actonian’s Drama Group

The Actonian’s are hosting the Avon One Act Drama Festival this year at Iron Acton Parish Hall from 24th – 25th February 2017.

On Saturday 24th February at 2:30 pm the Junior Actonian’s are performing ‘Blood’ by Nettie Baskcomb-Brown along with Oldland Players who are performing the first Act from ‘Private Lives’ and at 7:30pm the Actonian’s perform the first act of ‘Top Girls’ by Caryl Churchill with Sodbury Players also performing ‘Consequences’. Tickets will be available on the door or by phone:  01454228243.

‘Blood’ is a cleverly crafted comedy visualising what is happening inside your body as you perform your daily routines!  Follow Porphy and Alpha, two young blood cells, who must learn to deal with all that the human body throws at them.

‘Top Girls’ (Act One) was written by Caryl Churchill in 1981 at the height of Maggie Thatcher’s reign.  The first Act is set in a smart London Restaurant where Marlene is celebrating her promotion to Managing Director of an employment agency by inviting five unusual historical women.  All the women have either inhabited the world of men or been at the mercy of their husbands, fathers or lovers. Their stories are remarkable and they have in common their ‘extraordinary achievements’.

Following this performance of Act One the Actonian’s will go on to perform the full three act play on the 18th, 19th and 20th May at Iron Acton Parish Hall.  Tickets will be on sale by mid April
