The players is an amateur dramatics group who formed in January this year as a collective who wanted to get Levenshulme laughing (apparently my typos on here aren't enough). Since then they have developed quite a body of work, including:
- Recording and had broadcasting a radio murder mystery written by resident Malcolm Cowen
- Recording a second radio play which will be broadcast later this year
- Rehearsing Alan Ayckborn's Absent Friends which will be staged in March 2012
- Creating a murder mystery evening for Inspire – more details here
- Devising a play reading with audience participation to be stages as part of this year's Levenshulme festival on 30th October at M19
Quite a lot for just over 9 months, really, which is a testament to the players and their leader Beryl Beryl Cowen. I'm sad to say I've not had a chance to see the Players in action yet but if any readers would like to post a review I'm happy to put it up here.
The group have a website - www.levenshulmeplayers.co.uk - and meet on Wednesdays and Thursdays at 7.30pm, so if you'd like to get involved contact Beryl on 0161 225 4674 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
