at the Adrian Mann Theatre, Ewell, KT17 3DR

Our autumn 2022 prodcution will be directed by Sheila Carr, the director of our very successful production of “The 39 Steps” in 2019 and many more besides.

Arsenic and Old Lace was one of the first and funniest black comedies of multiple murders. Originally written in 1939 and set in Brooklyn, New York, it tells the story of two charming and gentle old ladies who are not what they seem. Behind the respectable facade of their lives lies an alarming and deadly secret that their nephew, Mortimer Brewster, discovers as he plans to marry the love of his life, Elaine Harper. It’s a secret which jeopardizes all his plans for their life together…….

Described as an inspired and delightful concoction, combining the charm and ingenious plotting of an Agatha Christie, with a sharp satirical perspective, this play is an entertainment not to be missed.

SADC has been collaborating with an exciting, young, local scriptwriter, Will Johnston, to record a pilot episode of his radio sitcom to pitch to potential production companies.

Chitterham is a village set in the heart of the midlands, just off the M1. Its residents are a peaceful bunch, content with their peaceful village. All is well until a representative of the UK’s new high speed rail plans, or FP2 (Fast-Paced Rail 2), arrives and drops a bombshell. A station is to be built in the centre of Chitterham, making it the most well-connected village in the UK.

SADC Members now have an opportunity to see a live presentation of Next Stop, Chitterham with full sound effects at a picnic party.

There’s no charge for attending but there will be a collection to help with the expenses with a suggested donation £5 per adult.

As space is very limited, especially if the weather forces us indoors, please let Dick Bower know by e-mail as soon as possible if you want to join us, including whether you will be accompanied. Admission will be on a first come first served basis.

We look forward to seeing you there.
