Spring show – Strange Relations

Author: DDS  //  Category: News

finalshowposter1Dunfermline Dramatic Society presents an evening of comedy, from the pen of Fife Playwright Bruce Adam.

In “Will and Wilma”, farcical confusions arise as the characters try to fulfil the demanding requirements of an uncle’s will.
In “Mary, Mary”, a linguistically challenged mother attempts to match-make for her son withhilarious consequences.
In “When I Snap My Fingers”, a couple’s evening at a stage hypnotist’s show leads them to behave very badly when they entertain the new boss and his wife.

Three plays representing three different evenings of comic mayhem equals an evening of laughter for the audience.

There wasn’t a dry leg in the house.” Theatre Review.

DDS premieres Escapology

Author: DDS  //  Category: News

 

Dunfermline Dramatic Society is proud to be premiering a new play, ESCAPOLOGY, by Fife playwright (and our very own President) Bruce Adam for our Autumn 2012 production.

This brand new play will also be presented in a brand new venue for us – the Glen Pavilion in Pittencrief Park. We hope that some of you can join us for what is sure to be a fantastic production, further details of which are below:

ESCAPOLOGY

The Glen Pavilion, Pittencrief Park, Dunfermline

Friday November 30th & Saturday December 1st
at 7.30pm

Synopsis:
1946 – A female burns patient lying in a hospital bed in South America is visited by a sinister figure from her past. 

In a series of flashbacks to London and Berlin in the 1930s and against the backdrop of the rise of oppression in Nazi Germany, the nature of their relationship is revealed – in particular their association with a well-known illusionist and escapologist, Harry Dunlop. 
In a series of increasingly tense scenes and unexpected twists and surprises, the play explores the power of illusion in both generating evil and in resisting it.

Tickets are priced at £9 (£7 concessions), and are available from society members or via our booking agent TicketSource: either online via our website or telephone 0844 8700 887 (booking and/or postage fees apply for TicketSource bookings).

Further details can also be found at our website, or on our Facebook page.

Twelfth Night now rescheduled

Author: DDS  //  Category: News

It is with great pleasure that we can announce Dunfermline Dramatic Society’s production of “Twelfth Night” has been rescheduled, following the unfortunate cancellation of our existing dates due to the extreme snow in December.

The new dates for the production are 18th & 19th Feb @ 7.30pm.

For more details, see the Next Production page.

Twelfth Night has been postponed

Author: DDS  //  Category: News

It is with great regret that we are having to postpone our production of Twelfth Night on the 3rd & 4th of December.

The weather has stopped us from being able to rehearse and has made it highly unlikely that we will get sufficient access to the theatre to effectively put on the show. Even if we could it is quite likely that very few people would venture out to see us.

We hope to be able to do the show again in January.

Those of you who have booked tickets and would like a refund, please contact us directly to arrange this.

We will keep you all posted.

The reviews are in, and they all agree, “Would Like to Meet” in the Alhambra was a great success!

Thanks to all of our friends, patrons, advertisers and sponsors who came along to support us over the two nights on the Alhambra stage, as always it is greatly appreciated. Also a big thank you to the office staff and technical crew at the Alhambra for making us most welcome, and for assisting in making the production the success it was.

The society now takes a break until rehearsals begin again for our Autumn season at the end of August. Watch this space for details.
