Crouch End Players at the Crouch End Festival


The Crouch End Players most recently performed three separate productions, over the early May bank holiday weekend (5-7 May) with eight performances in total as part of the Crouch End Festival. These were:
Crouch End Folk & Fable is a celebration of the local area and its history and people in spoken word, drama and folk song. 
Written and directed by Annie Windley
Hansel & Gretel an innovative half-hour fairytale from the Brothers Grimm adapted by Carol Ann Duffy - a family friendly drama for adults and children alike. Directed by Lindsey Pugh
Vintage Radio Theatre recreated classics from the golden age of the wireless from the 1940s: I Saw Myself Running by Antony Ellis, a psychological tale of nightmares and fear, and Sherlock Holmes and the Adventure of the Tolling Bell, a case of murder and manipulation in rural England based on a story by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Directed by Heather Strongman.

The productions were a roaring success, with Folk & Fable and Hansel & Gretel completely sold out. In fact the queue for returns at Hansel & Gretel's Monday morning performance stretched from the Philosophers' Garden out to the entrance to Priory Park!

We are currently preparing a number of new productions which will be staged before the end of the year.
To ensure that you never miss out on any of our future productions,  many of which do sell out in advance, please email crouchendplayers@hotmail.com and request to go on our mailing list.
