Haslemere Thespians present: 84 Charing Cross Road by James Roose-Evans, based on the book by Helene Hanff

A heartwarming and moving story based on the remarkable trans-Atlantic correspondence between New York screenwriter Helene Hanff and the staff at a London Antiquarian bookshop, Marks & Co. But this is no mere recital of letters, as the relationships grow beyond the initial book orders to take in witty literary repartee, shared personal lives and a certain kind of love affair. On a stage divided between Miss Hanff’s cluttered Manhattan apartment and the inviting mustiness of the Marks & Co bookshop, the audience will watch common passions and mutual care develop over twenty years through post war austerity to “Swinging London” into bonds that bridge the Atlantic. Tickets are available from Haslemere Hall box office or by telephone 01428-642 161.

Fernhurst Films present: 'Juliet, Naked'

This is one of the best adaptations of a Nick Hornby novel since ‘About a Boy’. The film is deliciously funny and full of clever twists.

Tickets available 2 weeks in advance from the Fernhurst Newsagents or on the door on the night. Licensed bar with wines, beers and soft drinks available from 7.00 pm along with cafetiere coffee/tea and complimentary brownie. Criterion Ices on sale in the interval.

The Grayshott Stagers present the Musical: Made in Dagenham

Directed by Kim Seymour with Chris Snelling as musical director and a cast of thirty - all rehearsing with great enthusiasm and having enormous fun, as we hope our audiences will. The show is written by Richard Bea, with music by David Arnold, lyrics by Richard Thomas and based on the 2010 film, centred around the true-life events of the Ford sewing machinists' strike of 1968. In this a mother becomes a union leader, despite the wishes of her family, who feel neglected by her focus on labour issues. She fights the inequality of women workers to be paid less, being classed as unskilled, while their male colleagues are classed as skilled and ultimately to receive more pay. These actions led to the creation of the Equal Pay Act 1970. Tickets available www.grayshottstagers.co.uk or 01428-605 464.
