We are now a healthy group of nine which means that we have a much wider range of plays to read. We meet once a month at Winchester Road on the second Tuesday of the month. This does involve a non-refundable small payment for room hire and refreshments from everyone in the group. Our purpose – to enjoy reading and discussing plays, and to increase the fluency of our sight reading.
We source scripts from Waltham Forest library in Leytonstone who have a decent stock of very varied playwrights. Over the past year, we have read some ‘lighter’ plays by Agatha Christie, Noel Coward and Michael Frayn We are looking now to read some of the weightier plays to push ourselves. For example Tennessee Williams, Harold Pinter.
It would be interesting to research playwrights and learn more about the development of theatre but this is up to the members of the group.
