As the UK locked down and all theatres were forced to postpone and cancel their performances, The Welkin starring Maxine Peake (The Theory of Everything, Funny Cow) was in it’s early days of thrilling audiences. This mighty, new play was cut down in it’s prime.
As theatres plan to reopen their doors to audiences everywhere,
TOUCH theatre & GWEEK PLAYERS are uniting to resurrect this ambitious and witty production.

BACK ON THE BILLING!
16 – 20 NOVEMBER, 2021.
Written by Noël Coward. Directed by Mandy Rolleston.
For their next independent production, Gweek Players will be performing ‘Blithe Spirit’, Noël Coward’s celebrated comedy about a novelist, Charles Condomine, and his second wife, Ruth, who, thanks to eccentric medium Madame Arcati, are literally haunted by his first wife, Elvira.
When she appears, visible only to Charles, and determined to sabotage his current marriage, life – and the afterlife – get rather complicated.
There is a Licensed Bar retailing a range of alcoholic and soft drinks.
Tea and Coffee are also available.
Your ticket price includes a choice of dessert which you can select when you arrive at the Gweek Village Hall and will be served during the interval.
Please notify Front of House of any allergies on arrival.
BLITHE SPIRIT – Ticket Holders
Your tickets for the original date are currently being held in order to be transferred to the new date on the same weekday in November 2021. We very much hope that this will still be convenient for you.
If you’re unable to attend on the new date, please contact CRBO at http://www.crbo.co.uk or call 01726 879 500.
MORE ABOUT US
We perform 2 to 3 plays each year between March and November. The plays are often – but not exclusively – comedies and we work hard to find good quality scripts to use. Novices and experienced actors can be assured of a warm welcome and help and support whenever needed. Both the group and our audiences like to see new faces! If you prefer to remain in the background there are plenty of ways that you can get involved backstage. Please contact us on 01326 251233.
For rehearsals and performance we use Gweek Village Hall with its excellent stage and dressing room facilities and Constantine WI hall.
Our USP is Theatre with Dessert – in the interval our audience enjoys a choice of scrumptious desserts. This has proved immensely popular and has become a unique feature of our performances.
As a group we have a good social life. There is the annual barbecue on our ‘birthday’ in July and a winter get together which is sometimes Burns Night – or any other excuse we can find!
Obviously there are also the refreshment breaks at the rehearsal or the pub afterwards.
