Witness For the Prosecution
By Agatha Christie
Directed by Michael Sullivan
Produced by Lisa Johnston
Although no stranger to the stage, Mike Sullivan made his directing debut in the 2019 One Act Play Festival; this will be Mike’s first time directing for GADOC as part of our annual calendar of productions, and we’re delighted to welcome him onboard! Supported by Lisa Johnston as Producer, we are very excited to see Agatha Christie’s murder mystery come to life this August. The affable Leonard Vole is being tried for the murder of a wealthy woman, and legendary lawyer Sir Wilfrid Robarts has chosen to represent him. Unfortunately, Leonard’s alibi depends on the testimony of his callous wife, Christine – who, after the discovery of a legal loophole, makes the shocking decision to appear in court against him. To Sir Wilfrid’s surprise, this is only the first in a series of puzzling revelations and reversals.
Details of auditions will be announced in due course so do keep an eye out.
A Vicar of Dibley Christmas -The Second Coming
A stage play by Ian Gower & Paul Carpenter
Adapted from the original TV series by Richard Curtis and Paul Mayhew-Archer with kind permission of Tiger Aspect Productions
Directed by Margaret Moffatt
After a fantastic success in 2019, Margaret Moffatt is once again getting her team together to bring to stage a second version of The Vicar of Dibley, this time with a festive twist! A Vicar of Dibley Christmas – The Second Coming continues the story with Geraldine still desperately trying to bring order out of the chaos that is the Dibley Parish Council. We see Hugo and Alice return from their honeymoon and Geraldine is stunned when Alice actually has a good idea. Why not put on a Nativity play? Why not indeed! What can possibly go wrong?
