Coronavirus Update

A message from the Chairman

Dear all,

I do hope you have all been keeping well recently, and able to enjoy at least some of the good weather.

I wanted to update you all with regards to how the current Coronavirus situation is affecting the Bridgewater Players, and what our plan is going forward.

Our primary concern is always the safety of our cast, crew, members and audience members. We have been monitoring how the response to the pandemic is going, and what impacts the restrictions have on us now, and how these may affect us in the future. We have also been evaluating the feasibility of both rehearsing and performing plays, given the situation.

As you may know, we would ordinarily be due to start rehearsing in September, with our first play of the season in November. It is absolutely essential that our cast, crew, producers and directors are safe and comfortable during rehearsals, and that we can also ensure all supporting people, and of course our audience are safe and comfortable during performances.

The committee has therefore decided, that at present, it is in the best interests of both our members and audience that we do not produce a November play this year.

We will of course keep the situation under review for the February performances, and we will look to make a decision around November.

Thank you for your continued support, and if you do have any queries, please get in touch.

People who have already purchased tickets and those with season tickets are being contacted in order to arrange refunds.


A Farce By Marc Camoletti, Adapted By Robin Hawdon

Bernard is planning a romantic weekend with his chic Parisian mistress in his charming converted French farmhouse, whilst his wife, Jacqueline, is away. He has arranged for a cordon bleu cook to prepare gourmet delights, and has invited his best friend, Robert, along too to provide the alibi. It’s foolproof; what could possibly go wrong? Well…. suppose Robert turns up not realizing quite why he has been invited. Suppose Robert and Jacqueline are secret lovers, and consequently determined that Jacqueline will NOT leave for the weekend. Suppose the cook has to pretend to be the mistress and the mistress is unable to cook. Suppose everyone’s alibi gets confused with everyone else’s. An evening of hilarious confusion ensues as Bernard and Robert improvise at breakneck speed.

Amateur Dramatics is (arguably) the most sincere “team” activity there is, where the cast and crew are all pulling together to give the best production we can, and having a great time doing it – all because we love theatre. We are always welcoming new members, whether on stage or doing the many “backstage” activities needed to stage a show.
