Drama On Your Doorstep!
The classic fantasy-comedy by The Master, Noël Coward!
Charles Cognomina lives to regret inviting Madame Arcati, an eccentric medium and clairvoyant, to his house to conduct a seance for research purposes. This results in his first wife, the mischievous Elvira, returning to haunt him and make a concerted effort to disrupt his marriage to his second wife. Ruth, who - unlike Charles - cannot see or hear the ghost. Noël Coward's acerbic and witty dialogue is thoroughly enjoyable and entertaining.

Portishead Players are a group of amateur drama enthusiasts based in Portishead, near Bristol. The group puts on four high quality productions a year, generally three plays and one musical or pantomime.
We welcome 'all comers' whether just to enjoy a good night out at your local theatre or to become more involved front stage, back stage or just helping out.
In addition, the group has raised considerable sums of money selling raffle tickets in aid of various charitable organisations. Last season the total amount raised was £1,069.30. The group appreciates the support given to these raffles, not only by buying the raffle tickets but also for the excellent prizes that are donated.
