The Lady Vanishes May 2024 Directed by Mark Pullin

Caerwys Town Hall. May 23rd 24th and 25th

The political atmosphere of the inter-war years was sharply divided between those who thought
the extreme left could solve Europe's problems, and those who desired leadership from the
extreme right. There were very few moderates, and this situation kept the governments of Britain,
France, and Eastern Europe in constant turmoil, swinging wildly between one extreme and the
next. Extreme viewpoints won out in the form of totalitarian states in Europe and communism took
hold in the Soviet Union, while fascism controlled Germany, Italy and Spain.
The extremist nature of these disparate ideologies turned European politics into an arena for sharp
conflict, erupting in Spain in the form of the Spanish Civil War, after which Francisco Franco became
dictator. Romania was ripped apart by a military coup led by King Carol. Benito Mussolini became
the most powerful man in Italy and in Germany, Adolf Hitler's fascist Nazi Party annexed Austria
and prepared once again to make war on Europe. With Britain and France tied up in their own
affairs, the path to World War II lay clear.

Dilemma to disaster, this is a fast-paced farce with silly twists and innuendo.

One Act Play Festival April 2019 

Theatre Clwyd, Mold.



ABC took ‘Give a Little Love’ by Alan Stockdill to the Clwyd Community Theatre Association One Act Play Festival at Theatr Clwyd with the same cast.

  The writer Alan Stockdill was in the audience for the performance.

  The Adjudicator, Nick Wilkes gave the group’s performance a very positive review. It would have almost certainly made the Wales Final of the Competition had marks not been lost because it was over the maximum length. Sarah Dixon won the award for the best female performance in the competition and Alison Roberts was nominated in the same category.



Wriiten and Compiled by Mick Hawes.

Lewis Carroll's classic ‘Alice in Wonderland' was published in 1865. Parts of the story and soe of the characters are familiar even to those who have never read it. The sequel ‘Through the Looking Glass' was published six years later. Charles Dodgson (Carroll's real name) was ordained as an Anglican priest.

This play takes the form of a radio interview with sone of the main characters in the story, interspersed with extracts from an 1898 adaption of the story into a play by someone known only as SSB.

Warning: Anyone wanting a serious appraisal of Alice in Wonderland or who might be tempted to say ‘most of this is totally irrelevant and some of the references are not even to the right Alice' should look away now !
