Casting call

Great roles for women in the LADS 2018 summer production

Anna Lingard is making her directorial debut with a stunning play for four women. 'My Mother Said I Never Should', by Charlotte Keatley, is a groundbreaking classic. A challenging text, this powerful but playful play provides insight into the lives of four generations of women set against the enormous social changes of the twentieth century, and the desire to love and be loved. Chosen by the National Theatre as one of the top one hundred significant plays of the 20th century. 

There will be two open workshop/audition evenings at Llanynymech Village Hall on Tuesday 24th April and Friday 27th April 7.30-9.30pm. The parts are for women of all ages. There is an open invitation to the workshop even if you then decide you don't want to be considered for a part. Just come and have fun!

If you would like to be involved but can't get to either of the workshops, please email Anna on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Friday 20th April - 'Red Dress Manor', ''The House on Peachey Street' and 'Last Cigarette'

One Act Play Festival

The MCDA One Act Play Festival is coming soon...

Four plays are being entered by the LADS, two of them written by our own members. We expect some strong competition from the other local groups taking part and look forward to a very high standard throughout. It's a great way to sample the best of local dramatic talent and enjoy a varied evening of short plays and friendly competition. We're delighted that last year's adjudicator, David Price, will once again be joining us for unenviable task of judging the competition. 

The Festival will take place over four evenings 4th - 7th April at Berriew, with more details about running order to follow soon.
