Be My Baby

A musical drama by Amanda Whittington, author of “Ladies Day”

Directed by Les Gomersall

‘A fine evening’s entertainment’ (British Theatre Guide’)

Set against a soundtrack of iconic 60’s music, Whittington’s beautifully touching and funny play follows the fortunes of Mary Adams, aged 19, unmarried and seven months pregnant. Sent to a Mother and Baby Home against her will by a mother intent on keeping up appearances, Mary has to cope with the dawning realisation that she will have to give the baby up for adoption whether she likes it or not. Despite this, and an overbearing matron, Mary soon starts to form friendships with the other young residents, and it’s not long before the girls’ youthful effervescence shines through.

Blackadder Goes Forth

Richard Curtis & Ben Elton’s iconic comedy, live on stage!

Directed by Paul Wilkinson

“One of the most intelligent as well as among the funniest of British Sitcoms” (The BBC)

Time for a “Cunning Plan”!

To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of the Great War, the SDC are delighted to have been granted special permission to present 3 episodes of the iconic BBC sitcom to close the 2017/2018 season. Waiting in fear of the dreaded order to go ‘over the top’ from the patently insane General Melchett, Captain Blackadder will try whatever he can to escape life in the trenches alive, ably supported (or hindered) by his hapless sidekick Private Baldrick. Be prepared to laugh and cry at our season finale.
