    NT Live: Twelfth Night
    Thursday 6th April, 7pm

    Tamsin Greig is Malvolia in a new twist on Shakespeare’s classic comedy of mistaken identity.

    A ship is wrecked on the rocks. Viola is washed ashore but her twin brother Sebastian is lost. Determined to survive on her own, she steps out to explore a new land. So begins a whirlwind of mistaken identity and unrequited love.

    The nearby households of Olivia and Orsino are overrun with passion. Even Olivia's upright housekeeper Malvolia is swept up in the madness. Where music is the food of love, and nobody is quite what they seem, anything proves possible.

    Simon Godwin (NT Live: Man and Superman,NT Live: The Beaux’ Stratagem) directs this joyous new production with Tamsin Greig (Friday Night Dinner, Black Books, Episodes) as a transformed Malvolia. an ensemble cast that includes Daniel Rigby (Flowers, Jericho), Tamara Lawrence (Undercover), Doon Mackichan (Smack the Pony) and Daniel Ezra (The Missing, Undercover).

    What the Butler Saw
    13-15th April 7:45pm
    What The Butler Saw is a side-splitting frantic farce written by the English playwright Joe Orton. It is set in a psychiatric clinic yet there isn't a madman in sight.

    The bizarre proceedings stem from Dr Prentice's efforts to conceal his attempted seduction of his prospective secretary. What follows is a hilarious spectacle of disintegration; normality crack and the characters descent into mental, physical and sexual confusion.

    The Canterbury Players are delighted to be returning in spring 2017 to The Playhouse Theatre, Whitstable with this contemporary classic.

    The Cromwell Road & Farndale Avenue Housing Estates Townswomen's Guild Dramatic Society Murder Mystery

    20th-22nd April, 7:45pm

    Entry in the Kent Drama Festival - adjudication date on Saturday evening following the performance.

    Share with The Cromwell Road & Farndale Avenue Housing Estates Townswomen's Guild Dramatic Society Murder Mystery the unforeseen incidents which happen during their ambitious production of a cunning whodunit “Murder at Checkmate Manor”. It is fair to say that whatever could possibly does! We don’t want to give away the fun but from costume malfunction and other horrors of an opening night, this comedy offers an evening of laughter and true entertainment.

    To avoid boredom, the audience is also treated to a Film & Fashion Show and a Murder Mystery Quiz, complete with a Prize! Somehow, despite injury, missing props, and reluctant actors, the cast rises to the challenge and their Chairwoman, Mrs. Reece, overcomes the outrageous dramatics to save the situation and provide an inventive twist to the tale.
