Clavering Players present a romantic comedy about the sexual politics of open marriage by DARIO FO and FRANCA RAME. Tickets include a performance by acoustic guitar and vocal duo from REV2, a glass of wine and a light supper.

'THE OPEN COUPLE' explores serious themes but its farcical structure leads to hilarious situations that will amuse, entertain and keep you guessing right up to the end.

Dario Fo won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1997 and his many plays include 'Can’t Pay? Won’t Pay!' and 'Accidental Death of an Anarchist'.

Come along! On the 3rd & 4th March 2018 at 7.30pm in Clavering Village Hall!

We are thrilled to announce that our festival production 'The Extraordinary Revelations of Orca the Goldfish' by David Tristram, came a very close runner up with just one point dividing us and the winning team from Woking.

Out of eleven entries, we thought it was a great result. Not only did we get the NDFA Council Trophy for runner up but also the John Scowen Award for Comedy and the Audience Appreciation award when all audience members who bought season tickets get to vote on their favourite production of the week. Thanks to all members and friends who supported us during this festival period.

Clavering Players began life under another name in 1945 - the Cheerio's Concert Party - and their immediate aim was short-term indeed: to support Clavering and Wicken Homecoming Forces Funds. Another very British institution was responsible for the name change and for keeping the interest going: the Women's Institute.

The first production as Clavering Players was 'Quiet Weekend', by Esther McCracken in 1959 and one of that production's cast is still a member of the Society. Ticket prices were 2/6p (12 1/2p) for the back seats; five shillings (25p) for the front.

Since then, the Players have developed into one of the leading drama companies in the area.
