Welcome to the Phoenix Players

Phoenix Players

Stratford-upon-Avon Drama Group

We are a well-established drama group based in Stratford upon Avon.  We’ve been running since 1945 and have performed many plays, pantomimes and musical shows over the years. We like to perform a variety of plays, from whodunits through to farces, comedies and classic dramas.  We are well-known locally for our pantomimes and have included the occasional musical in our repertoire too!

Our Next ProductionSnN PHOENIX website Next Prod 300dpiWritten by the excellent Jimmie Chinn [author of our NODA-nominated production “Take away the Lady”] this play tells of Bob and Jeff. Their cosy domesticity is threatened by Jeff’s crisis. Jeff is considering leaving Bob…. but for a woman, so that he can become a father.

Meanwhile Bob contends with meddling family members who are ignorant  of his living situation. His mother, a domineering comic creation, complicates matters by pressing Bob to get married. She refuses to recognise that there is anything about her son which might upset her conventional sensibilities. Can Bob’s family – Lois and Bill, Nina and Arthur and matriarch, Vera – help to rescue the situation? And will Bob be able to tell the seemingly ignorant Vera that the ‘straight and narrow’ is not the life for her favourite little boy……?
