Three Great Plays in One Night


I am so pleased that the Clarbeston Road Players are back in harness. I am not sure that this is the correct way to describe the return of a theatre company after the trials of the pandemic, but I can say that last Saturday night was a hoot.

The merry bunch treated us to three short plays. The first, Airfield by Bob Tucker, was a nicely put together tale of a flight being delayed, with a twist – a well-written piece with Sian Bishell, Peter Lewis and Sarah Rosser keeping us all engaged and chuckling happily.

The second piece, The Ghost Story, had the whole cast making sound effects for the narrator, and the audience hooting with delight. A great piece of silliness to lighten us all.



Anger Management by Robert Scott completed the night with some great fight scenes. The whole play allowed all cast members to shine, each in their own individual way.

Many thanks to Bobbie Sheldrake, Klaudia Dobrzycka, Cynthia Jennings, Cheryl Rayner, Kate Ashley and Annette Williams.

I hope I haven’t forgotten anyone.

I don’t want to single out any one individual from this delightful band for special attention (you are all stars) but thanks as well to the backstagers and lighting folks, whose names I don’t have.

Next, according to the programme, is the players’ third go at putting on Mother Goose, having been thwarted by the pandemic previously. Look out for an announcement soon. If this little two-nighter of three plays is anything to go by, you really shouldn’t miss that.
