50th anniversary gala concert


We are celebrating 50 years of PCS with a Gala Concert including guest appearances from some great former Musical Directors - Ralph Allwood, Bob Barsby and Jonathan Brown.

The concert includes several uplifting, well-loved choruses together with more reflective music new for the choir. These reflective pieces have been chosen in recognition of the Falkland Islands Memorial Chapel which has been home to the choir since it was built.

New Era Players

  20 Jun - 29 Jun

Waiting for Godot

by Samuel Beckett


New Era Players' next production, 'Waiting for Godot' by Samuel Beckett, is considered a seminal masterpiece of twentieth century theatre. It is a finely wrought tragi-comedy which symbolically captures the unresolved absurdity and tragedy of the human condition.

The play focuses on two tramps waiting at the roadside, next to a leafless tree, for the arrival of the mysterious Godot, who sends word that he will come but he never appears. Instead, they encounter two strangers, Pozzo and his slave, Lucky, whom they engage in conversation. The characters have no fixed memory of what has gone before, therefore, time has no bearing on events.

But don't wait too long before booking your tickets to see this ground-breaking production. New Era present 'Waiting for Godot' from 20th  to 22nd , then 25th to 29th June 2024 at the New Era Theatre, Andover Road, Wash Common, Newbury RG14 6NU. Tickets are £15 each and are available online at ticketsource.co.uk/new-era-players. For other enquiries, email the Box Office at boxoffice@neweraplayers.org or call 07919 916009. Doors open at 7pm for a 7.30pm start.

This amateur production of 'Waiting for Godot' is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd. On behalf of Samuel French Ltd. www.concord theatricals.co.uk
