Ruislip drama group celebrates 90th year with Priestley classic
RUISLIP Dramatic Society is launching its 90th season by staging JB Priestley’s comedy of errors When We Are Married from November 6-9 at the Compass Theatre in Ickenham.
Vice-chairman David Iggulden says the society is pulling out all the stops to celebrate nine decades of drama.
The play will feature a cast of 14 in full Edwardian costume, and the audience will be treated to a musical soiree in the foyer before the show.
Ian Tait founded RDS in 1924 and his relatives still come along to watch its performances. The society now has 30 members.
JB Priestley was famous for his biting social satire, particularly with An Inspector Calls, but When We Are Married shows his lighter side.
Set in 1908, it is the story of three married couples who have gathered to celebrate their silver wedding anniversaries.
All were married on the same day, in the same church by the same vicar, but are they actually married? The ensuing confusion unfolds against the backdrop of strict Edwardian mores and manners.
