Welcome to The Company
The Company is an amateur theatre group with members across Sheffield and South Yorkshire. We have been established for over a decade and have developed a reputation for high quality theatre worthy of the professional stage. We perform three plays a year at The University of Sheffield’s Drama Studio, a renowned intimate theatre venue. Our members are encouraged to give creative input at all stages of production including script writing, set design, stage management, directing and acting.
"When love grows diseased, the best thing we can do is to put it to a violent death. I cannot endure the torture of a lingering and consumptive passion."
Most inappropriately, Dorimant is falling in love.
Dorimant, a wealthy man, sex-hungry socialite who's basic 'job' is to get as many of London's upper class women into his bed as he possibly can.
It's a time-consuming business, because it involves hatching complex plots to fend off one woman whilst trying to acquire the amorous affections of another.
Dorimant, encouraged by his wealthy, charmless chums, is conniving to dump his current love one Mrs Loveit in order to seduce her friend, Belinda.
But it's a tough life for an alpha male on the rampage there always seems to be one more woman to have sex with.
And it's not long before Dorimant's eyes fall on one Harriet Woodvill, though she proves to be something more of a challenge…
The production will run Wednesday 25 – Saturday 28th June 2014 in the Drama Studio Glossop Road doors open at 7pm for a prompt
We are delighted to announce that, after a very competitive play choosing meeting last week, we now have a fabulous season lined up taking us well into 2015.
Our October 2014 show will be Arthur Miller's classic family drama, "A View From The Bridge". We welcome new director, Gareth Pert, who will be ably assisted and supported by our regular members.
This will be followed in February 2015 by "Emma". This is a return to Jane Austen country following our 2007 production of "Pride and Prejudice" and marks a welcome return to directing for Alan Wade.
Our summer 2015 blockbuster will be adapted and directed by Alison Munro, who has also been away from the stage for far too long. We will be bringing you “The Three Musketeers” which I’m sure will delight swashbucklers on stage and off.
All of this of course follows this year’s summer show, "The Man of Mode"; rehearsals start next week and we look forward to your support.
