a comedy by Derek Benfield

When two unexpected guests, Jane and Brian, drop in on Sheila and Andrew, a devoted middle-age couple, what ensues is a complicated and hilarious series of misunderstandings and mistaken identities as Sheila and Andrew begin to weave an elaborate web of lies and

Then please think of joining us...

While we were constructing the set for 'Heatstroke'. we had a visit from Radio Norfolks' Sophie Little, who was hunting for a clue for their Sunday morning treasure quest program. (Click here for link) The clue was found inside a blue hold-all, which was one of our props for the show.

 Feel free to come to Drayton Village Hall near Norwich on a Thursday evening to visit us. You don't have to be an actor, there are many other ways you can be involved as a member. We really need a good scenic artist to come onboard, but if painting is not your virtue, you could be  creative in many other ways like set building, lighting, stage management, or front of house, even book-keeping? The group has been performing twice yearly (or sometimes more) since 1949.
Come on, we all had to start somewhere. Age is no barrier. All you have to do is contact us. We are immensely proud that the Drayton Players have been entertaining local audiences since 1949. That's 68 years!

Free Performance
