The Didsbury Players are a very friendly amateur dramatic society based in Didsbury, South Manchester.  We meet every Tuesday night from 8pm till 10pm in the clubhouse of the Didsbury Cricket Club, close to the East Didsbury railway and tram stations, Fletcher Moss Gardens and The Didsbury pub. 

We always welcome new members for both back stage and performing roles.  We put on 3 or 4 performances a year ranging from epic musicals to small dramas. So if you think you might have the drama bug, or are interested in catching it, please drop us a line or come along to one of our Tuesday meetings.

    Opening Autumn 2016

    Set on a Liverpool Housing estate in the run up to Christmas, Breezeblock Park is a comedy about the ups and downs of family life. 

    Betty is preparing the decorations for her guest, and making her house neat and tidy for her guests. But what she hopes will be a respectable Christmas gathering of her daughter Sandra, brother Tim and sister Reeny, becomes a maelstrom of drunken bickering and petty recriminations when Sandra reveals the shocking news that she is pregnant.

    If you'd like to be involved, the script read-through will be taking place on the 14th June, 8pm at the Didsbury Cricket Club with open auditions over the following 2 weeks. Sign up for our Newsletter to get more information nearer the time.

    by Henrik Ibsen. A new version by Christopher Hampton

    Opening Autumn 2016

    Ibsen's great social drama of a caged woman in the late nineteenth century explores her tormented desire for escape and her yearning for individual and spiritual freedom.

    Hedda Gabler, daughter of an aristocratic general, has just returned to her villa in Kristiania (now Oslo) from her honeymoon. Her husband is Jørgen Tesman, an aspiring, young, reliable (but not brilliant) academic who has combined research with their honeymoon. It becomes clear in the course of the play that she has never loved him but has married him for reasons pertaining to the boring nature of her life. It is also suggested that she may be pregnant.

    If you'd like to be involved, the script read-through will be taking place on the 14th June, 8pm at the Didsbury Cricket Club with open auditions over the following 2 weeks. Sign up for our Newsletter to get more information nearer the time.
