FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT'S THE PLAY ABOUT?
When Jack Westbrook takes a trip to Henry Foxworth's country estate, he genuinely believes he's in for a civilised stay. When old ghosts from his past begin to appear, however, he learns that his problems are only just beginning.
IS THERE AN AGE RESTRICTION?
There's nothing that would class the play as unsuitable for minors in terms of foul language and violence, but it is a long play with intricate plotting, so we've unfortunately had to make the executive decision to set an age limit of 12+.
SERIOUSLY, WHAT'S THE PLAY ABOUT?
A good question indeed, but we're not giving away any more of the plot. Suffice it to say that Henry's Last Party is a murder mystery in the style of Agatha Christie, but with a twist and flair for language that P. G. Wodehouse would envy.
WILL YOU SERVE ALCOHOL?
We have endeavoured to get an alcohol license for the performances, but sadly we are unable to sell alcohol on either evening. Please feel free to bring your own bottle and glasses, however! We shall be serving tea and coffee at the interval.
IS THERE A GROUP RATE FOR CONCESSIONS?
After a long series of "talks" with our volunteer web designer, we decided to implement just one flat rate for groups - anything more would be too confusing and difficult to put together. On the plus side, group rate is still cheapest.
CAN YOU JUST GIVE ME A HINT AS TO THE PLOT? PLEASE?
Well, as you've asked nicely three times now, we've decided to put a full synopsis online for you to read. We won't tell you where it is or how to find it, however. If you're that insistent on spoiling the plot for yourself, why not buy some tickets?
ARE YOU DOING THIS FOR PROFIT?
We've been asked this on a few occasions. Our response has been the same each time. Once we've stopped laughing, however, we'll tell you honestly that what with costuming, hall hire, and a million other things, we're just praying we break even.
CAN I BRING MY DOG ALONG?
No dogs are permitted at the venue. Guide dogs are the exception, but we warn you in advance that they probably won't understand the plot. Cats are not allowed, either: they have a tendency to upstage the actors by being so aloof. Tortoises get in for free. We like tortoises.
ARE YOU MAKING THESE QUESTIONS UP AS YOU GO?
All the questions on this page have genuinely been asked frequently, including this one. It should be remembered, however, that it is all too easy to question yourself and your actions. Furthermore: "once", whilst low, is still a frequency.
WILL YOU BE PERFORMING ANY OTHER DATES?
We have no current plans to perform on any other dates or in any other venues than those which we are already advertising. If you want us to come and perform for you, we'll entertain serious (read: paying) offers from our contact form.
