Our next production


DADS are back with another outdoor production! The comedy, Mansfield Park & Ride, is an irreverent take on Jane Austen’s classic novels. Originally written for Eastern Angles, Brendan Murray has reset this new version of his acclaimed play here in South Oxfordshire. It is sure to delight and entertain, whether or not you are a fan of Jane Austen.

Will Mrs Bonnet see her daughters wed? Will the dashing Captain Knightly keep his shirt on?
