Spring Double Bill

Double Bill -
Kept in the Dark

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 together at the Welsh Church Hall. Additionally we often enter individual plays into The Waltham Forest Festival of Theatre - details will appear below when festival dates have been confirmed.

Mutatis Mutandis

Mutatis Mutandis
by David Campton

A young couple struggle to understand why their week old baby boy is a genetic mutant. Can Douglas persuade Celia that they should take their baby home and live as if he and the world were still quite normal?

"Mutatis Mutandis" by David Campton was written in 1960. A Comedy of Menace, this play will make you laugh, but it will unsettle you and force you to question your own values and those of society in general.

Bobby Gould in Hell

Black Comedy
by Peter Shaffer

"What a lookout! Not a candle in the house. A deaf millionaire to show sculpture to- and your monster father to keep happy. Lovely!"

Brindsley Miller has an onerous evening ahead. He’s got a new piece of art to sell to a renowned critic, and a prospective father-in-law to impress. He's "borrowed" some rather nice furniture from his neighbour, and is hoping for a perfect evening.

Suddenly, a fuse blows, the apartment is thrown into darkness, and chaos ensues! Meanwhile, a sober neighbour, with a new found taste for gin, a rather disgruntled neighbour, and an unannounced lover all pay Brindsley a rather unwelcome visit. Can Brindsley keep calm and salvage the night? Will the darkness keep all of his secrets hidden? After all, what else could possibly go wrong?

Peter Schaffer’s classic farce combines drunken ramblings, stumblings in the dark and hilarious characters to produce mayhem and entertainment for its audience.
