Stone invites Hallett (a Police detective) and Dee (a successful TV playwright) to his flat to meet his son and wife respectively. Once there it becomes apparent that all is not as it seems. Who is Stone? And why has he organised this little get together?
A psychological thriller with revenge at its heart centres on three people who are seemingly unknown to each other. After many twists and turns leading to a shocking conclusion it transpires that the three are all very much concerned with the business of murder.

Directed by Peggy Foster
Greg and Ginny are living together, but Greg is becoming somewhat suspicious that he is not the only man in her life. He wonders about Ginny's plan 'to visit her parents' and decides to follow her. Ginny is really going to see a considerably older lover, but only in order to break with him. Greg mistakes the ex-lover and his wife for Ginny's parents. Ginny's arrival further compounds an already wildly hilarious situation.
A very well attended and excellently reviewed production of this West End classic, performed at the Market Theatre in November 2011! See photo gallery for some more pics of this play, which introduced Caron and Tori to our illustrious cast!

CADS 2011 Summer Production is 'Temporary Shelter' by award winning novelist Rose Tremain. A rip-roaring comedy, Temporary Shelter was originally written for radio and won the Giles Cooper Award for the best radio play of 1984. Set in a French campsite near Avignon the play tells story of what happens when failed businessman, Larry, meets Trist, a failed actor and would-be writer. Change happens to both of them on the night of a Summer Ball. Rose Tremain's perception of her characters is acute and sympathetic and the result is an intelligent, witty and memorable comedy. The play has been adapted for the stage by Peter Sain ley Berry and stars Lloyd Lee. It will run from Wednesday 13 July to Saturday 16 July in the Market Theatre, commencing at 7.30pm. Tickets, £6.00, may be reserved in advance by telephoning 01446-773874. Rose Tremain said: "I am delighted that CADS should be performing 'Temporary Shelter.'
