STOP!... The Play

"I have read the play, Evelyn! I keep reading the play but the play keeps on changing!"

Stop!...The Play is a new comedy, having first been produced by Hatch It Productions in June 2015 at Trafalgar Studios. However it is fast becoming performed more widely up and down the country, with the pain experienced by the cast in the play being all too familiar to amateur and professional performers alike!

Five neurotic actors, one stressed Stage Manager, a crazed director, an invisible playwright and an escaped monkey are desperately rehearsing the world's worst play, which keeps being rewritten. And every rewrite is more hilariously terrible than the one before. And although It really shouldn't, somehow, the show manages to go on.

"Stop! ...The Play is a fist-bitingly funny send-up of everything bad about bad theatre. A roar-out-loud gem of side-splitting brilliance" Grumpy Gay Critic *****

6 rewrites, 4 men, 3 ladies, 2 acts, and more than likely the one and only performance you will ever see of Hildred McCanns ‘The Dark Heart of Art’ (working title).

Directed by John O’Leary-Fawcett (new title) and Assisted by Katy Elliott, The Griffin Players are thrilled to be performing this play at Dunstable Rep from Wed 2nd to Sat 5th October 2019. More information to follow, including details of the auditions next month, but if you have any queries please feel free to contact me directly.
