Our next Zoom meeting
Our next Zoom play readings are
Gamblemire's BIGGER Bay Tale by Steve Rowlinson
This will be read on:
Thursday 17th June 2021 at 7.30pm.
Inspired by Cumbria and Border folk stories and landscape, this is a meandering tale, reflecting the character and history of Cumbria’s rivers and becks. Originally performed and well received as a short play by Brewery Youth Arts as part of the Kendal Yarns Play Festival in 2016, it grew to become a full 45 minutes production under the direction of the Brewery’s Tricia Gordon as part of the BYA’s showcase in 2018 .
If you wish to join us, either to read or to listen, email our team at
Grange Drama Postmaster and request an invitation to the Zoom Meeting for the play.
See what we've done on Zoom so far!
Previous Zoom Readings
In February 2019 we began recording Radio Plays. We started with two plays which were originally part of the Street Theatre that was Kendal Yarns in the summer of 2016.
Radio plays had some advantages for the society:
They allowed us to create a production with very little overhead, either of time or of money.
They gave a Drama opportunity to those who had less time to commit or who could no longer remember lines.
They gave us new skills both in production and performance.
2020 Radio Plays
Something Different' and 'The Wigan Train' both penned by Lancaster based, John Martin.
On 6th February 2020 at Victoria Hall, Bob Somerset stage managed the recordings assisted by directors Deborah Powell and Jim Robson.
