2020 March – Coronavirus Message

16th March 2020

Dear members, friends and colleagues

With the evolving situation with Covid-19 (aka Coronavirus) where government experts are currently predicting there could be a large number of the population who contract the virus over the next few months, it has been necessary to review how this is likely to impact the Trinity.  We must ensure your safety and so, it is with regret that we will be postponing the forthcoming play, ‘Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen’s Guild Macbeth’.  We will advise of new dates as soon as we are able.

Those who have bought tickets should hold on to them but if you require a refund, please contact the box office.

Those who bought tickets via the website need take no action, your tickets will be valid for the next date.  If you require a refund, our box office suppliers are waving cancellation fees. The full ticket value will be refunded along with your booking fee.

We hope you understand the reason why we have had to take this action.  It is with your best interests at heart and we remain dedicated to our theatre going friends.  We look forward to seeing you later in the year when we can bring this fantastic production to the stage.

Note: The evening viewing of “Someone Who’ll Watch Over Me” this weekend is also postponed.

The Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen’s Guild Dramatic Society ladies mount yet another assault on the classics with a startlingly original production of Macbeth staged to get them to the Welwyn Garden City Drama Festival final.

2019 Oct – Murdered to Death

Wednesday 9th to 12th October 2019

The first in the ‘Inspector Pratt’ trilogy of spoofs of the Agatha Christie ‘whodunnit’ genre.

George Algernon Pratt – a brief biography.

The play introduces the inept and bungling Inspector Pratt, who battles against the odds and his own incompetence to solve the murder of the house’s owner. It soon becomes clear that the murderer isn’t finished yet; will the miscreant be unmasked before everyone else has met their doom or will the audience die laughing first?


2019 July – Someone Who’ll Watch Over Me

Edward, Adam & Michael – an Irishman, an American & an Englishman are held hostage together. The stresses and strains of their fight for survival produces humour which is at times hilarious, at times farcical and at times rather dark. National identities and prejudices are explored and we see into their imagination as they conjure up images and memories to amuse, comfort and, occasionally, disturb themselves and one another. As Edward says of the unseen captors “They think I am in their power. I am, the three of us are. They decide if we live or die. It’s up to them. But there is still one thing left up to me. Me alone. Have they, or have they not, made me less of a man…”

2019 April – Deathtrap


To make Sidney’s slump all the more painful, Clifford Anderson, a student of one of Sidney’s writing seminars, has recently sent his mentor a copy of his first attempt at playwrighting for Sidney’s review and advice. The play, “Deathtrap,” is a five character, two act thriller so perfect in its construction that, as Sidney says, “A gifted director couldn’t even hurt it.” Using his penchant for plot, and out of his desperate desire to once again be the toast of Broadway, Sidney, along with Myra, cook up an almost unthinkable scheme: Come along to find out more…..

2017 October – It Runs In The Family

From Ray Cooney, Britain’s master farceur (Two Into One, Run For Your Wife, etc). Set in a hospital, “It Runs in the Family” contains the usual assortment of farcical nuts running in and out of doors mistaking everybody for someone else, as Dr. Mortimore tries to fend off a paternity suit, an ex-wife, a punkish son and various other lunatics so that he may, at last, deliver the Ponsonby Lecture in an international conference.

“My glasses steamed up with laughter…A must for the bruised in spirit and the young at heart.” – The Sunday Times, London

“Tickles the funny bones quite shamelessly.” – Sunday Express, London

“As in every good farce from Ben Travers to Joe Orton, the location becomes a madhouse filled with an epidemic of unbridled lunacy.” – London Financial Times


Tickets £7 (£6 concessions)
Dates 11th to 14th October 2017

2017 June – Lord Arthur Savile’s Crime

Lord Arthur Savile, employs Mr Septimus R. Podgers, a chiromantist, who reads his palm and tells him that his future is to be a murderer. Lord Arthur therefore concludes that he must commit a murder before he can marry.

As his murderous plan take form, there are twists and turns along the way which will leave you thoughtful as the play develops and concludes.

This is a truly enjoyable tale from one of Ireland’s greatest playwrights.
