Centenary Year celebrations
2024 marks 100 years since the founding of Dundee Dramatic Society. Our centenary year shows will be:
*The Four Mary’s by Eddie Small 10-11 May – A short play by local playwright Eddie Small. Dundee’s four iconic Marys – Slessor, Brooksbank, Walker and Baxter (who each helped shape the city in their different ways) come to life in a disused jute mill, they discuss the Dundee spread out before them and each other’s role in forcing change. (Open casting – 28/2/24 at 7.30pm)
A Murder is Announced by Agatha Christie 5-8 June – An announcement in the local paper states the time and place when a murder is to occur in Miss Blacklock’s Victorian house. The victim is not one of the house’s several occupants, but an unexpected and unknown visitor. What follows is a classic Christie puzzle of mixed motives, concealed identities, a second death and a determined inspector grimly following the case’s twists and turns. Fortunately, Miss Marple is on hand to provide the solution – at some risk to herself – in a dramatic final confrontation. (Casting call announced soon)
Dads Army by David Croft and Jimmy Perry 4-7 September – A stage adaptation of the classic BBC TV comedy series of the Home Guard of Walmington-on-Sea who battle daily against the Germans and local ARP Warden Hodges.
*One Woman and her Bitch by William Lyons 1-2 November – A short play by Professor William Lyons, graduate of University of Dundee, and former Head of Philosophy Trinity College Dublin. This is a theatrical, challenging, and comic dish of Aristophanes, Brecht, and Panto. A homeless woman lives in a big city with her dog Cerberus. It has lots of wit and fun with some sharp political spice.
The Steamie (the play) by Tony Roper 27-30 November – (Play version) It’s Hogmanay and Dolly, Magrit, Doreen and Mrs Culfeathers, with a little help from the not-so-handy Andy, are in a Glasgow wash house getting the washing done before the bells.
