Ventured out last friday night to Lain’s Barn to witness the Domino Players take on A Christmas Carol. What finer production for this time of year? Review herewith: A Christmas Carol, the timely seasonal offering from Domino Players centres round old miser Ebenezer Scrooge who refuses to accept the Christmas spirit and generally spreads gloom and misery in his wake with money as his sole purpose for living.

Nearly three weeks since my last blog eh? Why is that? I hear you cry. Well I’ve been contemplating my navel along with much gnashing of teeth and finally came to the decision not to renew my subscription to the Drama Group. Before another scribbling under the heading of Am Dram Man I thought I had better sort things out drama wise. Now bearing in mind I have been a member since 1972 this was no easy conclusion to come to.

Thursday matinee and we’re sat in the Everyman Theatre in Cheltenham watching the Calendar Girls. I thought well I saw the film and enjoyed it so let’s see how they do it on stage. The answer is they did it very well. Tim Firth’s excellent and comic script transfers very well to the boards and the show was one of the best I have seen on the stage.

Well I didn’t get to the Unicorn Theatre in the end to see any of the ODN festival for reasons I won’t bore you with. I understand our play ‘The Summer of my Thirtieth Year’ is now to be put on as part of the Wallingford festival this week. I shall hopefully be able to write a few lines about our performance and at this and the ODN festival soon. We used to get a brief synopsis each week as to what is happening at group headquarters but no more it seems. Surely I won’t have to attend a club night?
