Progressive Players NEXT PRODUCTIONplayhouse creatures

Girton College, Cambridge, 1896: Elizabeth Welsh is preparing for battle. Girton is the first college in Britain to accept women.


Whilst the men graduate, the women leave with nothing but the stigma of being a 'blue stocking', an unnatural, educated woman, considered both unquallified and unmariageable by an unforgiving society.


Principal Welsh is determined to win the girls' right to graduate, whatever the cost.

Beautiful, playful and enigmatic invalid, Miranda, comes to stay with the rather ordinary Dr. Martin after he returns from a holiday in Cornwall, and proceedes to turn both his and his family's lives upside-down.


But something seems a bit fishy about her - what else could she be hiding in this quirky comedy tale?






The Dumb Waiter & Betrayal

March 2015

Progressive Players PAST PRODUCTIONplayhouse creatures

Two one act plays written by one of Britain's best known playwrights.


In The Dumb Waiter, two hit men co-exist in an atmosphere of menace and mystery in the basement below a disused restaraunt, wrestling with a dumb waiter which demands dishes they cannot supply. Just who is operating it?


Betrayal is a brooding mixture of manners, self-deception and dishonesty, set amidst a seven-year long affair between a woman and her husband's best friend.
