Somehow he develops a relationship with Phyllis, a stroke victim who can hardly speak and who has very limited movement. She teaches him to look at things properly, and helps him in his attempts to come to terms with the death of his wife; he gives her the incentive to struggle to speak again.
Two sisters meet up at their late mother’s house to clear it out. They find that their memories and perceptions of their parents and their childhood aren’t quite what they thought they were.

What did you expect?
Harvey was a great success! Audiences attended four productions early in May, and everyone had a good time.
Congratulations to director William Tombs and all the cast and crew for persevering through two years of lockdown.

TADS’ next production!
Wyrd Sistpted byStephen Briggs.
Wyrd Sisters is TADS’ next production, to be presented at the Roses on 23rd and 24th March 2019. Rehears?als are held on Monday evenings at Tewkesbury Town Hall.
How’s it going?
We are planning our next major production now, for September 2023. We in TADS have always prided ourselves on putting on productions that are interesting and sometimes unusual.
We have some ideas, but we are always looking for directors with a passion to present something. If you want to direct a play; if you have a burning need to present that play; if you can give us good reasons why we should support you… then we want to hear from you. Please contact the Secretary: firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll take it from there.
Meanwhile we are planning some smaller events; watch this space!
…probably a series of small events -
…possibly a community event…
…possibly a one-
We’ll let you know!
