Bedroom Farce
My goodness 'Bedroom Farce' was amazing, everybody acted so brilliantly! I really enjoyed it and i laughed so much. Well done.

Jack / Beanstalk Another fantastic performance by all.
From begining to end was pure enjoyment. The cast were fantastic.
What more could anybody want in a night out with their family.

Flint Street
Excellent intuitive casting and a funny and sensitive portrayal of this classic - encore!

Mother Goose
This was a golden egg production. Skilfully directed, enthusiastically performed. A good nightpm out.

Blithe Spirit
Totally superb, Every one of the cast were brilliant. Just laughed throughout. A very professional performance by one and all. Captivating-- well done!

Odd Couple
Saw the 'Odd Couple' last night. Brilliant! Loved the untidy set at the start. Fast paced and VERY funny. Well done to all concerned.

Shadowlands
Wow! Shadowlands was an ambitious work to take on but what a triumph. Everyone I've talked to was completely knocked out by it.

I had seen the film and wondered how, with limited resources, a rural drama group would stage the production. Well, I left after the performance on Saturday finding it difficult to come back to real life.

LivingTogether Thoroughly enjoyed "Living Together". Everyone was so well cast and brilliant. It is great to have such talent on our doorstep. Well done to all concerned. Lets have more.

Red Riding Hood Have to say it was an absolutely brilliant performance! A brilliantly cast production - all the cast performed very well.

An Inspector Calls Enjoyed "An Inspector Calls" on Saturday night. The actors were word perfect with excellent diction. Stage setting was perfect to the last detail. Looking forward to the next show.

AUTUMN PRODUCTION - MY BOY JACK

my boy jack

WARKWORTH TO STAGE WW1 DRAMA

The centenary of the ending of World War 1 will be marked by Warkworth Drama Group with a production of 'My Boy Jack'.

The play, written by David Haig in 1997, will take place in Warkworth`s War Memorial Hall on the three days (November 8th, 9th, 10th) immediately leading up to Armistice Day on November 11th.

Based on a true story, the play reflects a country at war, and offers an intimate portrait of one family's complex and divided experience in it. The family in question is that of Rudyard Kipling whose fame was then at its height and who seemed to speak for the whole nation.

'My Boy Jack' was adapted for a TV film and starred not only its writer as Kipling but also Harry Potter hero Daniel Radcliffe as Kipling's son Jack, along with Carey Mulligan and Kim Cattrall.

The play in Warkworth is being directed by Ralph Firth. He said:" A century after that conflict, Kipling`s voice is with us still. It is his words on the Cenotaph: 'To Our Glorious Dead',  and it was he who coined the phrase, 'lest we forget'. And most people are familiar with at least a few lines of his famous poem, 'If'.
 .
"David Haig's work captures the tension and horror of the trenches and the devastating impact of war on those at home."

Tickets for the production will be on sale at the Village Store, Warkworth and at N&F Young in Amble, as well as on line at Warkworthdrama.org.uk

Preformance dates: November 8th - 9th - 10th

'My Boy Jack'

1914-18

"Have you news of my boy Jack? "
Not this tide.
"When d'you think that he'll come back?"
Not with this wind blowing, and this tide.
"Has any one else had word of him?"
Not this tide.
For what is sunk will hardly swim,
Not with this wind blowing, and this tide.

"Oh, dear, what comfort can I find?"
None this tide,
Nor any tide,
Except he did not shame his kind---
Not even with that wind blowing, and that tide.

Then hold your head up all the more,
This tide,
And every tide;
Because he was the son you bore,
And gave to that wind blowing and that tide.
