We are an am-dram group based in Purley on Thames, near Reading, which started from small beginnings in 1993. Our productions are for the fun and enjoyment of our members and the entertainment of our audiences.
We normally put on three shows a year, a Pantomime, a Comedy/Farce, and a Murder Mystery Evening with a meal.
Productions raise funds for local good causes.

Now that Cavid-19 restrictions have been relaxed we have started rehearsals of our next production which will be “Big Idea” by Nigel Holloway.

Big Idea is a comedy about the members of the local amateur dramatic society, the Off-the-Wall Theatre Company (none of whom bears any resemblance to anyone you might have met). The ‘Big Idea’ in question is a new television series, where a lucky person gets the chance to fulfil a great ambition. In this case, the Off-the-Wall company’s director, the egotistical Jonathan, has harboured a dream of writing a masterpiece for the stage. The TV series gives him the chance to have his play broadcast on national television – with the help of the other members of the Off-the-Wall Theatre Company, who do not necessarily share Jonathan’s view of his abilities.
