DOT Productions returns with a sparkling new stage adaptation of the Jane Austen classic 'Emma'.

Emma Woodhouse has the world at her fingertips. Life seems pretty good – if a bit boring – and so Emma decides to spice things up by taking on a protégé, Harriet Smith. Although determined never to marry herself, Emma immediately decides to find Harriet a husband and sets about playing Cupid with the village men.
When her carefully laid plans unravel and lead to consequences she never expected, Emma learns life doesn't always go the way you want it to!
With its imperfect yet charming heroine and unique view of relationships Emma is often seen as one of Jane Austen’s most celebrated works.
In this bicentennial year of Jane Austen, DOT Productions brings its renowned style to 'Emma', a comedy of manners that is sure to delight.

Tickets: Adult £10, Child £5, Snr Citizen £9 (Over 65s),  Student £5,  
Friends of the Granary £8.00  (FOG card to be produced before show).
Hobson's Voice are a folk group based in the Cambridgeshire village of Over

With a mix of music, history and legend, Hobson’s Voice transform the stories of Cambridgeshire into community folk with heart.

Originally, their source-themes were the myths and untold stories of their home locality and the neighbouring area of Cambridgeshire and the Fens. Some of the ' Hobson's Voice' songs draw musical pictures of people, times and places we may travel past when we go westward from Norfolk. These days inspiration often grows from the most unexpected sources. For example, 'Ranelagh Road' is a moving story from a 1916 Military Hospital based on a nurse's diary  . They sing to guitar, mandolin, piano accordian, clarinet, recorder, whistle and flute.

Stuff of Dreams Theatre Company
present
Tickets: Adult £10, Child £5, Snr Citizen £9 (Over 65s),  Student £5,  
Friends of the Granary £8.00  (FOG card to be produced before show).
Hidden secrets, dark conspiracies and spies are the order of the day for 'Anglian Mist', Stuff of Dreams 2017 production.

When a noteable author and historian who specialises in Ufology  and conspiracy theories begins his lecture on the Rendlesham  Forest Incident he is somewhat taken aback when an elderly lady in the audience stands up and publicly takes exception to his claims regarding the true nature of the military installation at Orford Ness. What follows is a psychological thriller as a long-hidden cold war plot is brought kicking and screaming into the light of day with chilling consequences for all involved.

Inspired by the vast concrete pagodas and the desolate beauty of Orford Ness, this play will open with an immersive theatre experience on the Ness itself and then tour the eastern region.

A new play, written by John Goodrum based on H.G.Wells' classic ghost story 'The Red Room'.
An unnamed protagonist chooses to spend the night in an allegedly haunted room in Lorraine Castle. He intends to disprove the legends surrounding it. Despite vague warnings from the three infirm custodians who reside in the castle, the narrator ascends to the 'Red Room' to begin his night's vigil.
Everyone warned against it , but stubborness is a curious thing .......one night, entirely alone in an apparently haunted room. Its a familiar scenario, but the outcome is totally expected...and utterly terrifying !

Last Autumn’s tour of H P Lovecraft’s “THE HAUNTING OF EXHAM PRIORY” was hugely popular with audiences, with social media comments such as “Fantastic evening being spellbound by the spine-tingling new @RumpusTheatreCo ‘The Haunting of Exham Priory.’ Stunning” and “Thank you for a great night of suspense and creepiness … thoroughly enjoyed it … can’t wait to see what you do next year” …

Come and see this mesmerizing new take on H G Wells’ classic ghost story

THE RED ROOM
