The Gweek Players are a theatre group based in Gweek but drawing members from a wide area.
For their next 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. Directed by Mandy Rolleston.
Due to the uncertainty around Covid-19 regulations in theatres, we have decided to re-schedule Blithe Spirit for 20-24 April 2021. To keep things simple, your tickets for the original date have been transferred (again) to the new date on the same weekday. We very much hope that this will still be convenient for you.
If you’re unable to attend on the new date, we’d like to ask you if, instead of a refund, you would continue to show your support by exchanging your original payment for a Credit Voucher for a future Gweek Players’ show.
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.
