Exeter Drama Company

Theatrical Showcase

Directed by Elliott Logan and Ian Guy

27th September 2019, at Cornerstone.

We've been delving into the theatrical archives and are presenting extracts from plays, and reading the poems, of playwrights and authors who don't grace the amateur stage as often as they should.

We'll give you comedy, tragedy, foreign languages, sexual intrigue and the interesting (and sometimes racy) biographies of eight very interesting people.

You'll know the works of William Shakespeare but one or two of the other seven playwrights and authors may be new to you. We hope you enjoy snippets of Christopher Marlowe, Oliver Goldsmith, Aphra Behn, Fanny Burney, Richard Brinsley Sheridan, William Congreve and Harriet Beecher Stowe.
