This will be a special commemorative production marking the 100-year anniversary of the end of the War. It highlights the sacrifices and experiences of men thrown together and brings out the simmering raw tensions and traumatic relationships of the situation.RC Sherriff wrote this play based on his own experiences on the Western Front. As well as being very emotional, the whole play has the ring of authenticity and this will be reflected in the costumes, set design, lighting and sound to create the claustrophobic atmosphere of life in the trenches.We are fortunate to have assembled for this show a cast of 11 men as well as the services of Linda Hampson, an award-winning local Director, to create this memorable production for you.

Mrs Warren's Profession By Bernard Shaw

Vivie Warren, a young Cambridge graduate is horrified to learn that her education and entire luxurious life-style has been financed by her mothers career in the worlds oldest profession.The play was written in 1893 but was not performed until 1902 after which it was banned from public performance until 1925. Apparently Shaw wrote the play to draw attention to the truth that prostitution is caused - not by female depravity or male licentiousness but simply by underpaying, undervaluing and overworking women so shamefully that the poorest of them are forced to resort to prostitution to keep body and soul together.This ground-breaking period drama is full of insight and humane understanding and ranks as one of Shaws masterpieces.

The Pump House

Formerly the old pumping station which supplied water to the Watford area, the Pump House was opened as a venue in early 70s. The site is now an auditorium seating 124 and a live music venue. A community-minded endeavour, the Pump house is dedicated to providing facilities for local arts groups.

Located just a short walk from Watford town centre, there is free car parking at the venue and bus numbers 142 and 258 stop close by. Watford train station and Bushey station are both within walking distance and the Colne Valley/Ebury Way cycle track passes in front of the venue.
