Playreading

Soooo....
What IS playreading?
What do you do?

These are two questions I most get asked and the answer's simple:

The clue's in the title ... We sit around and read plays aloud!

SIT is the operative word. We don't stand up and move around as if we were on a stage, so the group is suitable for everyone - including those with mobility problems.

It may not sound much fun, but believe me it is. We've read comedies, tragedies, mysteries, murders... anything that takes our fancy. We sit around in a circle and take it in turns to read parts so that everyone gets a chance to read.

BUT - some people are quite happy to just listen and enjoy and that's fine. There's no pressure to read if you don't want to. We often chat about the play afterwards, but it's never a philosophical discussion - we like to enjoy ourselves!

We meet at Wallace House on the second Friday of each month from 10.15am to 12.30pm with a short break in the middle for tea and coffee (available from Wallace House Coffee Bar). The cost per session is £1.50 to cover room hire.

We can often get through a complete play at one sitting, but sometimes have to carry it over to the next month - which proves challenging for our leetle grey cells - trying to remember what happened!
