 The branch line between Mallingford and Titfield is losing money and British Rail is intent on closing it down. In desperation the villagers exploit the 1947 Transport Act and decide to take charge and run it themselves - with a train resurrected from a local museum!

Your Dream
with HILARY STRONG
P&T2.jpg

Members may know that the Festival Theatre has invited local actors to contribute their own version of the Mechanical’s infamous play at the end of A Midsummer Night’s Dream which they will compile into a film.

Hilary Strong has taken up the challenge on behalf of FP and with the technical assistance of Steve Pearce and Pat Grindey, and has

filmed a shortened version in the City centre over the Easter bank holiday weekend.

We look forward to the video!

Play reading
Maugham.JPG
 A widow, Marion, spends her holidays with the couple Sir and Lady Proudfoot in Boulogne, where a Spanish grandee falls in love with her. In order to chase him away, Marion lies that her husband is still alive, which leads to a series of comedy of errors when the Spaniard takes all men near her as her husband and thus his rival, and in due course challenges all of them to a duel.
