Our aim is to bring theatre into a more relaxed and casual environment in the hope that those who would not usually experience the arts in our local hall might get a chance to enjoy a night of entertaining monologues, poems, stories and songs acted out. If anyone would like to participate please email our secretary Emily Aherne at brideviewdrama gmail. The play, which is set in the vestry and belfry of a church, follows the story of the sacristan, Artie, who has spent his entire life caring for both the ch … urch and his ageing mother. Affections grow between Artie and Angela and they spend many nights together in the belfry. All the while, the young priest, Fr. Pat played by Conor Goulding is struggling with his vocation and indeed his faith and looks to Artie for support.

Formed in The Portable Theatre Company had two goals in mind: to give more chances for amateur actresses to shine, and to bring high quality plays to rural towns and villages.
Ah, the smell of the greasepaint, the roar of the crowd… or should that be the whiff of damp community halls and the shuffle of family members with a sense of duty? Amateur dramatics doesn't always enjoy a good rep. Stereotypes abound: of megalomaniac directors, would-be divas with swollen egos, affairs igniting in the wings, mildewed costumes, and toppling plywood sets matched by acting skills even more wooden and one-dimensional. Such is the enduring nature of these tropes that Alan Ayckbourn's play A Chorus of Disapproval — a supposedly affectionate send-up of local am-dram — is currently enjoying a West End revival. All of which would be met by howls of dissent from the thousands of people across the country who take part in community theatre.
