I am the winner of the Steyning Playwrighting Festival with my script 'Barabbas' judged by Sir Arnold Wesker. And I have over twenty published scripts on www.smithscripts.co.uk visit the site. Just go to authors and put in john collings and read a preview of each of my plays with songs, play without songs, monologues and a pantomime (plus a very popular comedy zoom script for 5 women entitled: ‘Ex’s Anonymous’. The plays with songs & pantomime comes with free guide vocals & backing tracks & sound effects. Thank you.

It is with great delight that we announce the winners of the blind bid auction painting, Andrew and Lesley Namsoo – congratulations!

As many of you will know, the painting was by one of our players, Minka and it would appear that a talent in painting very much runs in the family.

Minka’s great uncle , Dmitriy Nalbandyan (1906 -1993) was a great artist in the Soviet Union period in Russia, working in the genres of landscape and still life.

He created portraits of many famous people and the members of the Soviet political elite including Joseph Stalin, Nikita Khrushchev and Leonid Brezhnev.Dmititriy was highly regarded in artistic circles, gaining the favourable moniker of the "First Brush of the Politburo."

In 1978 his group portrait of the leaders of the Armenian culture "Vernatun" was awarded the Gold Medal of Arts of the USSR.

The work of the great master of portraiture, landscape and still life can still be seen in major museums around the world. The works of Dmitry are stored in the State Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow and are highly valued at auctions.

The artist’s self-portrait from 1982 is in the Uffizi Gallery (Florence).

What a fantastic bit of culture for a Wednesday night!

[11/01/21]   Thank you to everyone who came and supported us in our shows at the weekend. We had two fantastic full audiences and can't wait to perform again next year!
