THEATRE IS BACK!
We plan to reopen on Thursday 24 June 2021, subject to COVID restrictions.
Like the rest of the UK, when we encountered Lockdown 1, we thought we'd be closed for six weeks. But here we are, 15 months later, getting ready to reopen our doors in order to welcome back our loyal audience to Caterham’s wonderful Miller Centre.
We have all the covid secure protocols in place to ensure the safety of those who come to see a play. Things will be a little different to how they were before – and we’ll start off being over-cautious whilst we learn about the so-called 'new normal'. So, please forgive us if we can't yet offer facilities such as bar and refreshments – but be assured that what you can experience is first class entertainment in the comfort of our recently refurbished auditorium.
Our next production:
The Beauty Queen of Leenane
by Martin McDonagh
24 June – 3 July 2021 at 8pm; Matinée: Saturday 26 June at 2.30pm
Seating will be socially distanced and face masks will be required. Bookings will be restricted to a maximum of 6 seats per booking.
A darkly humorous play from the award-winning playwright, screenwriter and director, Martin McDonagh (In Bruges and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri). Set in the mountains of Connemara, County Galway, McDonagh’s debut play tells the tale of Maureen Folan, a plain and lonely spinster in her early forties, and Mag, her devilishly manipulative ageing mother, whose interference in Maureen’s first – and potentially last – loving relationship sets in motion a train of events that is funny as it is unsettling. Maureen might long for the romance that will spirit her away, but if she goes, who will stir the lumps out of Mag’s Complan?
Please note: contains strong language and violence.

Our theme for our Autumn 2020 showcase was ‘Today is a good day’. There is a wealth of talent on show and there are a wide range of interesting interpretations on that theme.

A temporarily closed Theatre did not stop our creative drive for finding new ways to produce drama. We challenged our members to write monologues on the theme of 'Keeping in Touch‘.
