Other Societies Update!

News of upcoming performancesSupport Your Local Amateur Drama Group! in Lindfield, Wivelsfield and Warninglid below.

We got details of these too late for our October newsletter.

Lewes Theatre Club’s 75th anniversary show “The Play’s the Thing” included an extract from Racing Demon – the scene set in the Savoy Hotel lobby which we hear they did brilliantly with Mike Hollands especially wonderful as Streaky.
(Alan Carter has a high target to rise to at Holy Trinity next month.)

As well as our full performance of Racing Demon you may like to see one or more of these shows!

We wish them all luck (or a traditional broken leg), and will be happy to display a posters for Warninglid and Wivelsfield and other shows following ours at Racing Demon from 15-22nd Nov.

ISOC Mayor Results

Congratulations to Rob Helliwell on a very clear victory in the ISOC mayoral elections last night.

Our own candidate Ross Bradshaw came a very creditable third, despite starting the electoral race (aka fund raising) somewhat later than the other candidates.

We suggest some some inspiring words …

  • I’ll be back
  • I will return
  • I can take it. The tougher it gets, the cooler I get.

Racing Demon is a story of clerical conscience and conflict that is simultaneously gripping, moving and funny! (If you liked “Rev” on TV, you’ll love this!) Recognised as Sir David Hare’s masterpiece it won three best play awards in its initial run in 1990. Its story remains very topical covering tabloid malpractice, female bishops, homosexuality, tough economic times and the lack of relevance of the Church to ordinary people. It is a show everyone will enjoy, not just those interested in the church, but it will have added poignancy by being performed in (and raising money for) Cuckfield’s beautiful and historically important 13th century Holy Trinity church.
