Next Bath Drama event:
Bath Drama's December play reading:
by Alan Ayckbourn
6th December 2021, The Rec Pavilion.
Doors open at 19:00
Bath Drama invites our members to this year's festive in-person play reading.
Bring your best (or worst!) Christmas jumpers, and a drink to toast to an exciting 2022!
Synopsis of the play: Season's Greetings follows a somewhat dysfunctional family over the Christmas period, as they face up to 'the most wonderful time of the year'. All 9 characters play pivotal roles in the developing story, as we soon begin to see everything begin to fall apart behind the cracks of a civilised family get-together!
Set over 4 days in your quint-essential British household, this Ayckbourn farce uses some of his familiar techniques and cleverly-crafted character stereotypes to ensure that audiences are kept laughing, cringing and reflecting the whole way through.
What better way for Bath Drama to celebrate the festive period!?
Doors open at 19:00 starting at 19:15. We are once again in our familiar home, The Rec Pavilion within the Bath recreational Ground, Pulteney Mews...
The big green building with the white fence.
We are once again supporting Julian House this Christmas as they face their toughest time of the year, you'll be able to make donations on the day and we also invite you to donate via. Bath Drama's JustGiving page. Thank you!
Here at Bath Drama we take your health and safety seriously. With recent guideline updates, we ask that you please wear a mask (when not enjoying your mince pie!) and ensure a negative lateral-flow test prior to attending. Thank you!

Robin Hood and the Babes in the Wood
A new pantomime by Gill Morrell
13th - 16th January at the Rondo Theatre
The villainous and greedy Sheriff of Nottingham is already guardian to the rich and beautiful
Maid Marian, when he hears of the Babes, a brother and sister who are orphans with plenty
of cash. Even though Nottingham is in the grip of a plague, he sends his evil but incompetent
henchmen / women (Vi and Russ) to bring them, by force if necessary, to Nottingham Castle.
Meanwhile, Robin Hood and his Merry Men are having a tough time in lockdown, everyone
getting cross and frustrated, especially Scarlett (Will Scarlett or Won't She?) who has been
wooed by Robin for ages but can't decide to marry him. There are also the Big and Little
Johns, Much the Miller's daughter, and the tone deaf minstrel, Alan a'Dale.
Maid Marian escapes from Nottingham and finds the Merry Men, who promptly fall for her
and forgets Will Scarlett... and so does Robin.
Meanwhile, the Babes have left their home in Bath to travel to Nottingham,, escorted by their
Nurse, the Dame, who's convinced the Sheriff is their best friend.
Full of jokes about lockdown, fights, love scenes, songs, and a brand-new vaccination
invented on stage, with all the expected ingredients of pantomime and a few new ones, this is
Gill's fifth pantomime and offers a great experience once again!
