The week starts with a full dress rehearsal on the Monday. Members who are not involved backstage are encouraged to attend the dress rehearsal and be an ‘audience’. The play is performed over four nights from Wednesday to Saturday. On occasion, a Saturday matinee will be staged, and this will usually replace the Wednesday evening. Start time is always 8pm. There is an interval usually of 15 minutes, and the audience will be on their way home before 10.30pm.
