Theatre Group

 

Every couple of months members of the Theatregoers Group go to a play, evening or matinees.  Often Tricycle, Hampstead theatre or National Theatres.  Ticket prices can vary from £15 to £30.   A day or so later we meet in the evening and have a discussion about the play and its production. Jim Coakes. In 2010 we went to plays by Alan Bennett (The Habit of Art), Sebastian Barry (Andersen's English), Oscar Wilde (Salome), Noel Coward (design for living) and Ena Lamont Stewart (Men should weep)

Members of the group are alerted to the theatre visits by e-mail and tickets are allocated on a first come first served basis.  If you would like to join please let us know on clubs@mapra.org.uk
