Play readingAs well as putting on productions, CADS runs a series of more-or-less regular meetings in a room at a local pub or similar venue. Often these take the form of play readings - to date, we've read works by Alan Ayckbourn, Peter Shaffer, Willie Russell, Lee Hall, David Tristram and Terry Johnson - but they could also be talks by visiting speakers, or a quiz, or a mini-workshop.

They normally start at around 7.00 p.m. and last until about 9.00 p.m. (with maybe a break for refreshments, depending on the nature of the evening) but on occasion may go on slightly longer. And normally, there's no need to book - just turn up - we look forward to seeing you.

Our next meeting has been postponed for a while now, largely due to other commitments (see our Current production page!), but we're hoping to re-launch the series in September or October. If you have any suggestions for what you'd like to happen at one of these meetings, whether or not you want to lead the session, please contact the group convenor Michael Young....
