Play readingAs well as putting on productions, CADS runs a series of more-or-less regular mid-week meetings related to drama in all its aspects. 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.

These take place currently at the Coombes Community Centre (actual room may vary depending on the nature of the meeting). They start at 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 three meetings are as follows:

Wednesday27November - workshop: "The Meisner technique for actors", hosted by Martin Maynard

Wednesday 8 January 2020 - illustrated talk: "Theatre on film", hosted by Michael Young

Wednesday 19 February 2020 - drama quiz, hosted by Pauline Rowe

If you have an idea for future meetings, or would like to lead a session yourself, please contact the CADS Secretary Michael Young....
