Who we are
We perform four times a year in the intimate studio theatre at the Lichfield Garrick Theatre.
Our members come from all walks of life and no experience is required to audition. We are not just a society for actors; we welcome all members interested in backstage, lighting & sound, props, costume, set design and everything in between!
Our Patron Sir Derek Jacobi
Pre-eminent British classical actor of the first post-Olivier generation, Derek Jacobi was knighted in 1994 for his services to the theatre, and, in fact, is only the second to enjoy the honor of holding TWO knighthoods, Danish and English (Olivier was the other).
Modest and unassuming in nature, Jacobi's firm place in theatre history centers around his fearless display of his characters' more unappealing aspects, their great flaws, eccentricities and, more often than not, their primal torment.
A message from Sir Derek:
By Francis Durbridge
" This is exactly what fans of thrillers come for – the plot twists and turns, mysterious strangers arrive, there’s skullduggery, suspense, drama – not to be missed”

Robert and Stella are horrified to learn that their young son has been kidnapped – not for ransom, as they are informed by the crook who visits them, but to force them to allow him to remain in their house for forty-eight hours. Later on two other men, supposedly police officers, arrive and reveal that one of the kidnappers has been murdered and Robert is suspected. Soon, however, it is clear that these two men are far from what they seem: after the on stage murder of the first crook they themselves demand to be treated as house guests. From then on twist follows twist until the highly exciting and ingenious denouement.
