Making quality theatre accessible to the local community

Season 2022

FULL SEASON DETAILS

2022 (TTT’s 21st birthday year!) saw us offering not two but THREE full-length plays. This is a huge change for us and we will be asking for help to achieve it.

Torquay Theatre Troupe is delighted to announce its production program for what we hope will be a COVID free 2022 in Shoestring Playhouse (which will be undergoing some building work during the year!)

An irresistibly funny and tender play about big dreams and small changes.

Amid the dreaming, the dramas and the dirty dishes, something has to give. But will it be Kath or the kitchen sink?

Things aren’t going to plan for one family in Withernsea, Yorkshire. Pieces are falling off Martin’s milk float as quickly as he’s losing customers and something’s up with Kath’s kitchen sink. Billy is pinning his hopes of a place at art college on a revealing portrait of Dolly Parton, whilst Sophie’s dreams of becoming a ju-jitsu teacher might be disappearing down the plughole.

Synopsis

“Thirty-Three” centres around Saskia’s 33rd birthday dinner party. She has invited a handful of her closest friends to her Sydney terrace for an evening of food, music, and good times. But when her estranged little brother mysteriously shows up, the proceedings take on a decidedly different turn, and a friendly evening ignites into a wild night of booze, games, and shocking revelations.
