    BUMS ON SEATS  -  by  Michael Snelgrove 

    In a tatty provincial theatre, a new play called 'Fecund' is being staged. This uproarious adult comedy introduces everyone involved in a series of hilarious scenes linked by a chorus of usherettes. The stage manager has a blinding hangover, the leading actors range from pretentious to bitter to plainly incompetent, the new marketing assistant used to work for British Rail, the author is lecherous and unscrupulous and the others are just as outrageous. The second act centers on the audience, an equally mixed and unharmonious group. Chaos erupts just as the theatre's major sponsor arrives. Funny, satirical and technically inventive, Bums on Seats is a treat for theater fans from start to finish. 

    Young Playwright Competition

    Are you a budding playwright aged between 14-18 living in the Didcot area ?

    In a bid to draw out young playwrights in the area, Award winning Didcot Phoenix
    Drama Group is launching a competition to find an original play. The winner of the
    competition will have a chance to work with the group to polish the final play and
    perform at a drama festival in spring 2019.


    After the closing date of the 30th November 2018 the committee will choose the best 3
    plays that will be performed as rehearsed readings by the group in front of an audience.
    After the readings there will be a vote on the overall winner.


    The winner will be allocated a mentor to work with in order to polish the script (if
    needed) and assist the group in the casting and production of the finished article. This
    will then be performed in front of an invited audience and entered in a festival in the
    Oxfordshire Drama Network Festival in Abingdon 2019
