Not suitable for children


 It’s a late Christmas night outside a busy A & E department and Keith, the security guard, is taking a breather from the hectic chaos inside. Whilst there he has conversations with nurses, an ambulance driver, a street girl and a children’s entertainer, amongst others. In his imagination though Keith is far away, standing on the Charles Bridge in Prague watching Kath the nurse dance before he makes his move, no longer a security guard but a suave college lecturer, quite at home in the mystical, ghostly and magical aura of the city. From the bleak realities and madness of the hospital at Christmas to the expressionism of Keith’s imagination we are taken on a journey from who we are to who we would like to be through the experiences of many at Christmas for whom there is no candy coating.

 Help! We urgently need to find more people to work behind the scenes on Torrington Players’ productions. The small group of members currently trying to organise everything that isn’t acting, is in danger of buckling under the pressure and without enough people off the stage as well as on, putting on productions is extremely difficult.

Do you know anyone who would like to get involved with anything from stage management, to publicity, to set-building and design or any of the other roles that go into putting on a production? If so, please email us - we would love to hear from you!!  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
