07/06/2018 to 28/07/2018 AGATHA CHRISTIE'S THE UNEXPECTED GUEST
 THE MILL AT SONNING

This intriguing 'whodunnit' twists and turns towards an edge-of-your-seat climax, leaving you guessing right until the last chilling moment! When a stranger runs his car into a ditch, on a dark and foggy evening, he makes his way to an isolated house where he discovers a woman standing over the dead body of her wheelchair-bound husband, a smoking gun in her hand. What's more, she admits to murder. Then, surprisingly, the unexpected guest offers to help her concoct an alibi. But is it possible that Laura Warwick did not commit the murder after all? If so, who is she shielding? The house seems full of possible suspects...

10/07/2018 to 14/07/2018 GORING GAP PLAYERS OPEN AIR PERFORMANCE - THE RIVALS

The Goring Gap Players and the Basildonians are presenting a joint open-air production of ‘The Rivals’ by Sheridan, directed by Barry Steele – in the beautiful grounds of Little Bowden (near Pangbourne). This follows the very successful 2014 production of Midsummer Night’s Dream in the same gardens. Lovers of this most popular of Sheridan’s comedies will delight again in the well-known characters of Mrs Malaprop (with her wrong words) and Sir Lucius O’Trigger (the wild Irish Baronet), also the deceptions and love-tangles of Jack Absolute and Lydia Languish - and their young friends - all as set in Bath, the then racy holiday destination of the late 1700s.
The Gardens of Little Bowden, near Pangbourne RG8 8JR

11/07/2018 to 21/07/2018 READING OPEN AIR SHAKESPEARE - MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING
 PROGRESS THEATRE, READING

Enjoy an open-air production.of this great Shakespearean comedy - although with a touch of darkness. Much Ado About Nothing follows the return of soldiers from war. Packed with intrigue, double-crossing and plenty of laughter, Much Ado About Nothing is the perfect introduction to Shakespeare. Following the turbulent romances between Hero and Claudio and Beatrice and Benedict, this exploration of what loyalty, chivalry, and true love really mean empowers us to challenge our perceptions of relationships. Our production moves the story from Italy to an English house at the conclusion of World War Two. It will be using the story of the lovers to explore the nature of the relationship between men and women as well as exploring themes of jealousy and class. Leonato welcomes his friends back from war. His daughter, Hero, is in love with Claudio. His niece, Beatrice, verbally spars with Benedict. Can their friends conspire to bring them together? Will ill-intentioned Don John succeed in driving Claudio and Hero apart? Can Leonatos's sister, Antonia, come up with a plan to save the day? Can the watchmen overcome their incompetence to bring out the truth?

20/07/2018 to 28/07/2018 SOAP OPERA PARODY - THE INHERITANCE, BY EVA MARCHETTI
 SOUTH STREET ARTS CENTRE, READING

Soap-opera parody set in Seville, Spain. An old rich man, on his death bed, confesses the existence of an illegitimate daughter to his son - Rafael - and gives him detailed conditions under which she would be allowed to receive her share of the wealthy inheritance. Rafael, not exactly a brilliant mind (as many main characters), is accompanied in this task by the typical villain (Don Felipe) and the typical hero (Don Julio). When the daughter arrives, her pragmatism immediately clashes with the three stereotyped gentlemen.
