19th to 22nd November 2014 - Next Week
It’s John and Barbara’s 20th wedding anniversary and John has invited old friends Trevor and Jenny down to his country house for the weekend. They go out for dinner and come back to find they have been burgled, and that the burglar is still inside the house!
The burglar is none other than Spriggs, and in his desperate attempts to talk himself to freedom he reveals all manner of secrets that the keepers had thought well and truly hidden.
Will marriages and life-long friendships ever be the same again?
Will Spriggs manage to escape?
Will Barbara eventually get rid of that statuette?
Theft is a tongue-in-cheek delight, packed with daring reversals and stinging one-liners about marriage, money and crime.

Tickets £7 available from Camilla on 07734543928, or from WG Davies the Newsagents in Cowbridge

A family treat in the lead up to Christmas
Professional theatre troupe visits Cowbridge with “Great Expectations”
With many years of summer outdoor touring theatre experience, Gloucester based Rain or Shine Theatre Company, are set to bring some ‘Christmas Magic’ to The Market Theatre Cowbridge with a new adaptation of Great Expectations, Charles Dickens’ classic story for adults and children alike!
Rain Or Shine Theatre once again ‘bring classical theatre into the heart of local communities’ in their new Winter tour. The story tells of Pip, a young orphan growing to adulthood, whose expectations are shaped by a number of colourful and curious characters. His future is formed and fortune made by a mysterious benefactor: could it be an escaped convict he meets on Christmas Eve, or perhaps Joe Gargery the kindly blacksmith, Miss Havisham the eternal bride, or uncompromising lawyer, Mr Jaggers? With the boundaries of good and evil blurred, Pip has to learn who is friend... and who is foe.
Dickens’ Victorian novel of wealth, poverty, love, rejection and conflict is one of the most popular classics of English literature and an enduring tale that has delighted readers, listeners, theatre and cinema audiences for over 150 years. The performance is suitable for ages 7 and upwards.
With a cast of five playing a whole host of characters, and with surprises throughout, Rain or Shine aim to delight and enchant families new to the classic tale, and those who already know it.
Artistic director James Reynard said “We brought The Snow Queen” to Cowbridge last Christmas, and i’m delighted to bring our new adaptation of Great Expectations this winter.”
The Company’s national tour includes a ‘one day only’ performance at the Market Theatre, Cowbridge on Thursday 18th December at 7.30pm. Tickets priced £10 adult (£6 child) are available from the venue on 01446 773874 or by ringing Rain Or Shine direct on 03306 600541 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
