Shows From the Songs


Saturday 20th May 2017
7:15 pm - 10:15 pm

The Orchard Cafe,
singapore Road, W13 0EP

Together with the Green Curtain theatre company we have planned a fabulous night out for you – full of fun, laughter, drama and song to make you smile, laugh and think.
We have eight new short plays for you to watch; all inspired by well-known songs. Partnered with writers from the USA, the theme of this evening’s plays will be “Love”: love that goes well; love that has been lost; love that could never or should never have happened; love that is recognised too late.


The plays are based on well-known songs and we are joined by a fantastic singer to lead the singing (yes you can join in – we’ve a song-sheet!)

There is a post-show discussion with the playwrights, cast and director and of course food by Chef Vix.
It should be a lot of fun and a great night out; so do join us
