Theatre and drama group based in Marlborough, Wiltshire 

We are delighted to announce our next production: Alan Ayckbourn's hilarious comedy 'Absent Friends', directed by Sue Baxter.

25th to 28th March, Marlborough Town Hall

When their dear old friend Colin loses his fiancée, his married friends invite him round to cheer him up over tea and sandwiches. As the tea starts to pour, it's clear that trouble is brewing with a wickedly funny blend of jealousy, infidelity and barely concealed loathing. With friends like these, who needs enemies?

Come and see it! Bring your friends!

Marlborough Town Hall
