Community Play update

Exciting times for our Mayfield Community Play! By the time you read this we will have held six workshops, despite the snow & lack of water! About 65 local adults and children will be acting in our play with another 25 people helping behind the scenes with costumes, props, publicity, tickets and refreshments. The Mayfield Silver Band, Beggars Gate and MayZing Choir are also working with us, so well over 100 people from Mayfield and Five Ashes will be involved in our project. We are now liaising with three Mayfield filmmakers about their possible involvement as well.

Thanks must go to St Dunstan’s Church, Skipper’s Hill Prep School, Mayfield Primary School, and especially to Tony Woodliffe and Jo Compton for all their support with the workshops.

Our playwright is now busy researching and writing the play so there will be a part for all our actors. She is aiming to have a first draft ready by the middle of May in time for the four script development workshops taking place at the Memorial Hall on Mondays in June. During these workshops all the actors, the playwright, musicians and director will work on the play by making suggestions and giving ideas to help improve the final draft of the play.

Rehearsals will start at the end of August, with performances taking place from Wednesday 24 October to Saturday 27 October (with a matinee and evening performance on the Saturday).
