Award-winning one act plays come home to Ashley Road studio

Salisbury audiences are in for a treat at the beginning of June as Studio Theatre in Ashley Road puts on a number of its award-winning plays

Each play consists of one-act and were all entered in the Totton Festival of Drama, which was held last month.
Fresh from their performances in Hampshire, cast and crew now bring the successful plays back to Salisbury to their home theatre.

Murder! In Little Grimley by David Tristram, which scooped a Best Supporting Player award for Emilia Fletcher at the festival held in March, will be staged on 2 June at 8pm – tickets £8.

The play follows an amateur drama company that decides to stage a murder mystery only to find themselves at the centre of what might be the real thing.

The following week, the festival runner-up production English for Pony Lovers, taken from the radio series Double Acts by John Finnemore, will be performed on 8-9 June at 7.30pm.

German Elke takes English lessons from Lorna, who might not be the language tutor she’s cracked up to be.

The production, for which Rachel Fletcher took home the Best Actress award, will share the stage with The 39 Steps Even More Abridged by Patrick Barlow – a fast and furious one-act version of the smash hit comedy.

Tickets are £12 on 8 June and £20 to include supper and backstage tours on 9 June from Salisbury Information Centre (tel 01722 342860) or online at
