“MIDDLE AGE SPREAD’’: Our audiences enjoyed the play, the NODA report thought it
was good, and we made a very creditable profit, somewhere round £1000. Congratulations and Thankyou to everyone involved with this. One little quibble: Sandy’s white sheet still hasn’t returned home. If you lent any bedding for the set, please could you check carefully that you don’t have an unfamiliar sheet in your cupboard.

“LETTICE AND LOVAGE’: this has been cast as follows:
Lettice Douffet Barbara Johnson
Lotte Schoen Annette Toms
Miss Framer Sue Baker
Mr Bardolph Stuart Martin
Surly Man John Gordon
Tourists ALP members, led by Sandy McIntosh
The Production Manager is Pat H., who may be contacting you at a later date to ask you to volunteer for something!
First rehearsal is on Tuesday 4 th September, and the director is Sylvia (07505 449185).

60 TH ANNIVERSARY (now 61 st ): The date for our celebration is Saturday 8 th September (now fast approaching.)
It will be open to all current and past members and partners, all of whom will receive a specific invitation. This will be sent separately, as this newsletter goes on Facebook and is public, and the event is not open to everyone.
All the details will be on your invitation.

If you don’t get one, and feel you should, please
contact me, Jean J (

PETER TOMSON: We will be dedicating our November production to the memory of our President, Peter Tomson, and in the play programme we would like to include some pieces about him. More longstanding members will have many memories of Peter, so please may we have contributions from as many of you as possible for inclusion? They don’t have to be long compositions, maybe just an anecdote. Please send anything to me, Jean J. (contributions may be edited due to space restrictions.)

PLAYREADING There will be a reading of “The Actress” by Peter Quilter on Wednesday 19 th September. Please come along if you can, as this play is a contender for production at some point.
