'Family Circles' by Alan Ayckbourn

When Edward and Emma Gray's three daughters and their partners arrive for their parent’s wedding anniversary each couple seems to be generally unsuited. “We all marry the wrong people,” announces Edward.

Sadly, Edward’s marriage to mousy Emma isn’t much better - otherwise why would the daughters suspect that they are trying to kill each other.

However, during the course of the evening’s events and just as that plot thickens, the daughters change partners and keep changing until each possible combination proves more outrageous than the last.

So, do we make a marriage or does the marriage make us? It’s a big if.

'The Importance of being Earnest'
by Oscar Wilde.

The Importance of Being Earnest by the master of comedy Oscar Wilde, makes a welcome return to the Civic Theatre in Rotherham Rep’s wonderfully witty, deliciously decadent and classic production.

Jack wishes to marry Algernon’s cousin the beautiful Gwendolen but first he must convince her mother, the fearsome Lady Bracknell, of the respectability of his parents and his past.

Sadly owing to casting difficulties, we were unable to perform this wonderful play and hope to do in a future season.

'Stepping Out' by Richard Harris

[Unfortunately now cancelled due to Covid-19]

Stepping Out has been described as the ultimate ‘feel good’ comedy. The story focuses on eight individuals from disparate backgrounds and with differing motivations who attend the same weekly tap dancing class in a dingy church hall. Although the students treat the classes as social occasions and show little co-ordination, Mavis their ex professional chorus girl teacher, enters the class to perform in a local charity gala.

As their relationships progress and their circumstances change Mavis tries her hardest to teach them to overcome their inhibitions and left feet.

But before the dancing begins Mavis must mediate the minor dramas that erupt among this motley but lovable crew.
