Eastern delight and plenty of Yorkshire humour.
Each year, the show is written ,produced and performed by local people
who form the group of actors and stage crew. The productions are
received with great acclaim; comments from the 2013 audiences include
“Great fun, very clever, great costumes” and “a chance [for the
players] to exercise considerable talents”. The 15 cast and stage crew
is formed from a varied group of professions – farmers, vet,
librarian, goatherd,speech therapist, postmistress, fireman, teacher,
writer, photographer, trainer, photographer, retailer and designer.
The tradition goes back some 40 years.
The Players put on the entertainment for the over 65s in Austwick and
Lawkland Parishes near Settle at a free supper on the first Thursday
in March. Then they throw open the show to the public on the following
two nights to help pay for the over 65s evening.
The public shows will be on Friday 7th and Saturday 8th March. Doors
open at 7.00pm at Austwick Parish Hall. Tickets £6 (includes glass of
wine) £2.50 children (soft drink) are from Crossleigh Stores (015242
