Havant

Play Reading Group

Living with the threat of Coronavirus

At the moment we can't physically meet on the 1st Wednesday of each month from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm at 6 Grange Close, Denvilles, Havant, PO9 2QT but we could meet in virtual reality.

Leader: Ingrid Corrigan, telephone number 023 9279 0401

Ingrid writes: When we get back to normal we will continue to read a wide variety of plays from Shakespeare to Ayckbourn. I try to choose plays where there is the possibility of seeing them either live (Bench Theatre, Havant or Chichester) or on screen (DVD's or Vue Cinema).

We have been meeting weekly on Zoom until now, from 3.00 pm to 3.30 pm on Wednesdays, with a series of plays including All My Sons by Arthur Miller. Group members brought a copy of the play in a book or on a kindle to take part in the reading. We are now taking a break until September. Contact Ingrid for further details.

Plays to watch online

There are plays being screened free from the National Theatre every Thursday from 2nd April and the Royal Shakespeare Company will also be broadcasting 6 plays on the BBC over the coming weeks. There are links to both these sites on this page and on the Havant U3A Links page.

For the first time, Chichester Festival Theatre is to stream a selection of its archive productions online, beginning with the musical Flowers for Mrs Harris from Thursday 9 April for the Easter weekend. The production will be available on the CFT website for 30 days and will be free to watch.
