Spring Double Bill

Spring Double Bill
Two one-act plays with an interval inbetween

where and when

 A B O U T


Our regular Spring 'Double Bill' slot consists of two one-act plays performed at the Welsh Church Hall. Additionally we often enter the plays into The Waltham Forest Festival of Theatre - details below.

The Ruffian on the Stair

The Long Christmas Dinner
by Thornton Wilder


"There's a story that my Grandmother Bayard crossed the Mississippi on a raft before there were any bridges or ferryboats. She died before Genevieve and I were born. Time certainly goes very fast in a great new country like this."

Ninety years in the life of the Bayard family told through their annual Christmas gatherings. A meditation on life, death, time, continuity, and change by Thornton Wilder (1897-1975), author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning plays Our Town and The Skin Of Our Teeth, and novel The Bridge of San Luis Rey.

Bobby Gould in Hell

God of Carnage
by Yasmina Reza

"Morality decrees we should control our impulses, but sometimes it’s good not to control them… You’re far more authentic when you’re showing yourself in a horrible light."

Two couples meet up to build bridges after their sons get in a playground scrap, but simmering tensions and unresolved conflicts reveal that the parents can be far more juvenile than their children. God of Carnage was written in 2006 by French-Iranian playwright Yasmina Reza and translated into English by Christopher Hampton in 2008. A smash hit on both sides of the Atlantic, it has won both the Olivier Award for Best Comedy and the Tony Award for Best Play.
