Do you enjoy going to the theatre, but don’t care to go on your own? A group of us from the U3A goes to all The Loft’s productions, so you can meet friendly faces at the bar beforehand and have a chat and a drink in the interval. You don’t have to ‘join’ the group — you can just come along — but if you do join, you will get reminder emails about forthcoming productions. We usually go on Tuesday evenings. Our next dates are shown below.
Booking: To book as part of the U3A group, email Sue Hamilton at The Loft, at email@example.com, giving the reference and your phone number. When you are sent a confirmation email, for security you will also be given your own individual Patron number, which will then be quoted by whoever rings you up asking for payment. If you don't use email, call Sue Sheen or Ros Heron, who will contact Sue Hamilton for you.
For more information, and to be added to the email reminder list, contact Sue Sheen (details at back of Info) or Ros Heron on 730712.

Booking deadline 25th Feb, ref WDU3A Caretaker party
At the top of an empty four-storey house full of junk, Davies, an ageing, filthy down-and-out, is given shelter by the kindly but vulnerable Aston. He quickly makes himself at home until Mick, Aston’s brother, a far more menacing character, arrives. A battle of wits begins as the brothers seek to manipulate the old man to their respective ends. But Davies has his own agenda… Mischievous, scary and brutally funny.
|Tue Mar 17th||The Children, by Lucy Kirkwood 7.30pm, £12.00|
Booking deadline 10th March, ref WDU3A children party
Two ageing nuclear scientists live in an isolated cottage on the coast,
as the world around them crumbles. Then an old friend arrives with a
frightening request and the implications are shattering. These are very
real people in a very real, seemingly simple, domestic situation,
facing life-changing choices.
|Tue Apr 7th||Anne Boleyn, by Howard Brenton|
Tuesday, 7th April, 7.30 pm, £13.50
Booking deadline 31st March, ref WDU3A Anne party
Howard Brenton’s award-winning play moves away from the popular image
of Anne Boleyn as a doomed siren, to offer a compelling portrait of a great
English heroine. This vibrant and clever play celebrates the life and legacy
of Anne Boleyn – the second wife of Henry VIII - who helped change
the course of our nation’s history.
