2014 Spring Triple Bill
A triple bill of one-act plays

where and when

 A B O U T

Three one-act plays in one evening

Woodhouse Players are proud to announce their 2014 Spring Triple Bill consisting of three one-act plays.

"Hamlet Part II" by Perry Pontac

"But who will fill the throne now all are gone?"

Just days after the events of Shakespeare's Hamlet (spoiler: everybody dies), the Danish ambassador Seltazar returns to Elsinore. It is up to him and Fornia, the castle librarian, to stop Denmark falling into anarchy with the help of the old king's ghost, a passing Fool and many a hey-nonny-no. An extremely silly spoof which plays fast and loose with Shakespearean language and stage traditions.
Featuring poison! Treachery! Swordplay! And a joke about a hedge. more

"Say Something Happened" by Alan Bennett

"Oh. It's "at risk" is it? That's something else that's come in, "at risk". There never used to be that, did there, "at risk". It's all "at risk" now. Battered babies, battered wives . . . . are you sure you won't have a scone?"

Eager but green June is despatched by the Council to register elderly people in the area. Mam and Dad are elderly and therefore must be in need of registering - but the able-bodied, street-wise couple have no intention of being registered...
A tale of the ageing process, beaurocracy, family, society and regret.
But still very funny. more

"Within Required Parameters" by Kelly Read

"A computer has the potential to do anything. All it requires is the right programming... a doctor that can be accessible anytime, from anywhere, for medical advice. Think of the possibilities!"

Admitted to a private room in a state-of-the-art modern hospital, Martin Hitchin's operation is on schedule and all seems well. He is distracted from his slight unease at the advanced technology surrounding him by more pressing problems at home, but a proposed solution to his troubles leads to a disturbing conclusion. Things are about to take a nightmarish turn for the worse in a dark vision of the future that is only too plausible.
A new play written by Woodhouse member Kelly Read. more
