Over My Dead Body

It's that time of year again when The Centralian Players are building up to their final production of the year, this time performing Over My Dead Body, by the late playwright and actor, Derek Benfield.

The play centres around Gerald, recently widowed, who plans to spend the rest of his days alone with his memories, not realising his late wife had other plans!  With the help of his daughter and son-in-law, Gerald does his best to keep unexpected visitors at bay and maintain his independence, but memories revive events from the past which are both funny and sad.

What a Backstage Farce!

For those who enjoyed Steve Barker's debut as a playwright with his production of Awkward!, you will be pleased to hear he has been bashing away in front of his computer for the past year and is about to release his second play on an unsuspecting public.

Backstage / Farce is a two-act play about a local drama group, the Bluebell End Players, who are preparing for - and performing - the opening night of their production, A Bit of Slap and Tickle.  As you may expect from a farce, things do not go according to plan as the group battle their way through frayed tempers, bad nerves, and missing cast members!
