The 2017 CDS production of Bridge to Farce (written in Cuckfield by Richard Willis and Paul Ruse and directed by Sophie Bradshaw) won a NODA Excellence award in 2018. Originally a one-act play written for our February Frolics, the full length version went on to play at the Queen’s Hall in Cuckfield as well as at Hurstpierpoint and in August 2018 at the Capitol Theatre in Horsham!
The 2019 CDS production of Stepping Out won a NODA Drama Accolade of Excellence award that presented by NODA in April 2020 at Guildford Theatre. This was a brave an innovative step for CDS in conjunction with ‘Dance With Emily’. Dancers who hadn’t acted and actors who hadn’t danced merged to stage this wonderful production in the Queen’s Hall, Cuckfield. Co-directed by Sophie Bradshaw and Hariett Sheldon.
Feedback from audiences for Comedies of Class meet CDS’s usual high standards – two first time attendees described it as
“a delightful evening” and “exhilarating to watch“
We are nearly full for the last night on Friday – so advance booking is recommended.

Can you help distribute these flyers in and around Cuckfield?
Publicity is often one of the most underestimated off stage tasks needed! But if you don’t tell them they can’t come!
Please support CDS by say, putting one in a back window of your car and having a few to pass on to friends or drop off at shops and pin to community notice boards.
You can collect flyers from the Queen’s Hall or contact us if you need larger numbers or have locations for a poster sized at A4, A3 or even A2 boards!
If you missed the early bird deadline (or want to save even more) why not organise a group of eight or more – when we will give you a massive 20% off the ticket price!
Or buy in person at Marcus Grimes in Cuckfield and pay by cash, cheque and now CARD (or contactless apple/android)
