ALL AT SEA!                                                   26th-30th July 2017 at Welford Park

ALL AT SEA! was the brand spanking new show in July 2017!

Continuing to follow the extraordinary life and times of local Charlotte Peake (poet, mystic and free thinker), we plunge into the 1920's; the world of jazz, glamour, women's emancipation and unprecedented social and political change.

The residents of Welford Park, with some familiar staff and friends, all embark on a sea voyage in search of broader horizons. Themes of diaspora and shipwreck pre shadow our own age as our brave voyagers struggle to come to terms with leaving home and finding new homes in unexpected places.

The Queen Anne house of Welford Park itself will become our ocean liner and the audience co-passengers on this exciting, spectacular and touching musical romp across the stormy waves of a new age!

Our 2014 show....

Our 2014 play was set in 1918 in the “Big House” and the neighbourhood is hoping for peace. The protagonist Charlotte Peake has her heart set on a circus – there’s even a tent in the barn, but where’s the talent going to come from to fill it?

Maybe by taking a leaf from Lord George Sanger, famed Newbury circus owner and gold-plated fibber…  Enter the anarchic Joe and friends, with their bitter-sweet Masquerade.
 

Geraldine McCaughrean added: “Fittingly, Welford Park itself was used as a First World War hospital and the idyllic setting between the Queen Anne house and the River Lambourn is the most gorgeous backdrop for a play.”
