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 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?
Covid-19 and Masques
Probably the least surprising news of the year so far - our beloved Masques will be postponing a year until 2021.
We delayed making this decision until the last feasible moment, in the hope things may improve. Sadly that is not the case and we are at the point where rehearsals would need to start and no means to do so.
So, let's look forward to next summer.....
Wednesday 28th July 2021- Sunday 1st August 2021 will be our new dates!
On the positive side; thanks to all your fantastic support and fundraising, we are in a strong financial position to stage a great show, we have the location booked back in Boxford and it will be the 21st birthday of the modern Boxford Masques!!
After all these dark times, something wonderful to look forward to.
We hope you are safe and well and now looking forward with us to a super spectacular show next year!
8pm Boxford Village Hall Thursday 5th March.
