St Peter's Players (Wolvercote)
3 one-act plays, 11th to 14th April, 19:30
The Merry Regiment of Women by Rae Shirley
Shakespeare's Kate and Petruchio, Romeo and Juliet, daring Henry V, plus Lady Macbeth and Cleopatra, combine to produce a mad and merry, totally irreverent play.
Poor Yorick by Phil Mansell
Yorick the jester is not dead – he’s on the road dying a death as he pioneers a new kind of comedy called stand-up. When this fails, he is persuaded by his tavern wench girlfriend Bess to return to Elsinore and get his old job back. But when he arrives he finds there have been many changes, and he becomes embroiled in Hamlet’s plans for revenge.
Melons at the Parsonage by Nick Warburton
Two amateur drama groups become joint winners of a play festival. A tie-break involves the groups performing an extract from their own entry and then an excerpt from the opposing team's play, but the pieces are very different. They compete again with hilarious results but the outcome is still a tie. This time a rugby scrum will decide the winner!
