Our 2019 spring show is the spoof country-house murder thriller 'Dame Agatha's Greatest Case', written by Robert Sheppard and licensed by Stagescripts.  Performance dates are Thursday 6th June to Saturday 8th June at Over Community Centre.

Sir Redvers Brandling and his wife are hosting a jolly weekend at their country house.  Among the guests are a Cabinet minister and his wife, a Hollywood starlet, a well-known playboy and old school-friend of Lady Bertha's, Dame Agatha Crustie, along with her travelling companion. 

Also making an appearance are a notorious criminal with his henchman, and the Brandlings' charlady who has a penchant for mis-quoting Shakespeare.  As the party assembles, a web of tangled relationships is revealed and the atmosphere becomes increasingly fraught, culminating in the murder of one of the guests.

The above intrigue, along with well known Gilbert and Sullivan tunes throughout the play, makes for an entertaining evening.   Why not come and see if you can guess 'Who Dunnit'?

2019 Drama Festival entry: 'The Play's the Thing' by Kirsty Smillie


Our Drama Festival entry 'The Play's the Thing' is a one-act play written especially for The Over Players  by Kirsty Smillie.  It was recently performed at the Sawston Drama Festival and was awarded the Bonner Trophy for Best New Play!  Don't worry if you missed it though as we will be performing it again at the Barn Theatre on Thursday 16th May as part of Welwyn Drama Festival.  See here for ticket information. 

Synopsis:  It is Drama Festival time and tensions are running high - what play to take to the Festival?  Should our local amdram group go with an old familiar - safe but boring - or do they try out something new?  The problem is, every time they try to perform something new, their rival drama group somehow steals it from them and submits it first.

For further information about the above festivals see the Sawston Drama Festival Facebook page and the Welwyn Drama Festival web page.
