“Always A Bridesmaid”
by Jones, Hope, Wooten
Dir: Sonya Cameron
In this hilarious comedic romp, four friends have sworn to keep the promise they made on the night of their Senior Prom: to be in each other's weddings … no matter what.
More than thirty years later, these friends-for-life are still making "the long walk" for each other, determined to honour that vow.
If you've ever elbowed a stranger out of the way to catch a bride's bouquet, seriously questioned the mental stability of the duo saying "I do" or been forced to wear the world's ugliest bridesmaid dress, this deliriously funny production is definitely for you…and your dearly beloved!

Beverly and her estate agent husband Laurence are entertaining their new neighbours – nurse Angela and ex-footballer Tony. Joining them is Susan, who’s been banished from her teenage daughter Abigail’s party.
Abigail’s Party is a suburban situation comedy of manners, and a satire on the aspirations and tastes of the new middle class that emerged in Britain in the 1970s.
Gradually this polite drinks and nibbles soirée descends into domestic anarchy. Tensions in the hosts’ barely functional marriage emerge and their obsessions, prejudices and petty competitiveness are ruthlessly and hilariously exposed.
“Leaves Of Glass”
by Philip Ridley
Dir: Garry Thomas)
On the surface, Steven has everything. A beautiful wife, a successful business, a brand new home. But beneath the glittering veneer lies a monstrous secret ...
“You believe him cos he wraps all the painful stuff in feathers and flowers. Makes it all safe and cosy. You can't feel the broken glass inside.”
Leaves of Glass is a rich, complex play about two brothers and the hold that the past and memory has on them.
Haunted by the death of his father and a car accident involving a young child, Steve finds his life unraveling and his pregnant wife unable to comprehend his pain and sense of loss.
