When We Are Married

The read-through for When We Are Married, by J.B. Priestley, will take place in the theatre, at 7pm, on Sunday 5 September. The director, Ray Riches, is looking for a large cast, consisting of 7 men and 7 women of varying ages.

Priestley’s most popular play, When We Are Married, is a wonderful comedy, full of larger than life characters, about the snobbery and pomposity of the north country nouveau riche, and how this is punctured by a startling and unsettling revelation.

A casting audition for this play was held in March 2020, just before lockdown, but anyone still interested should come along to this new readthrough. If you are unavailable for the audition but would like to be involved, contact sueandrayriches@hotmail.com.

The play runs from Monday to Saturday, 6-11 December 2021, and marks the return to a regular programme of plays, at the theatre.

We welcome new members

New membership is the lifeblood of any theatre, which is why Hebden Bridge Little Theatre holds OPEN CASTINGS at the read-throughs for all of our plays. Read-throughs are a great way of getting to know the theatre. They're fun and informal, because we know it can take a lot of nerve to join a new group of people.
It's also a great way of dipping your toe in the water, and try out a bit of acting to see if you enjoy it. Maybe you want to work back stage or front-of-house, but whatever the reason, it's how most of our members started.

So why not drop in and give it a try? And if you're an old hand, why not get back into the habit?

Simply come to the theatre on the date above, pick up a Membership Application form at the theatre, or email our Membership Secretary, Gilly Walker, at membership@hblt.co.uk, enclosing your name, address and telephone number. We'd like to see you!
