The Exmouth Players September production of 'Colder Than Here' by Laura Wade was presented in support of FORCE Cancer Charity. 

We wish to thank those of you who attended the performances and kindly placed your donations in the collection buckets.  This together with a donation from The Exmouth Players means we were able to present FORCE with the sum of £200.

Our photo captures Wendy Groves (Director) along with two of the cast, Alix Kelman (who played the daughter, Jenna) and Ray Virr (as the father, Alec), presenting the cheque to Sarah and Nickie from FORCE.  The remaining cast members were Helen Ballard (who played the mother, Myra) and Helen Bowhay (as the other daughter, Harriet). 

The Exmouth Players wish to express their thanks and appreciation to Wendy and all four of the cast, plus all our other members who were involved with this production.

EXMOUTH ONE ACT PLAY FESTIVAL

It is with regret that, after hosting the Exmouth One Act Play Festival over the last 40 years (as part of The All England Theatre Festival), we have taken the decision to no longer host this in the future.

We thank all of you who have supported our Festival over this time and have taken part in one or more of these Festivals.  This has been greatly appreciated.  We have certainly had fun and there have been many winners of the various cups and trophies over the years.  This will always be remembered as will those who have organised this annual event.  Our thanks and appreciation to them too.  

At the end of each Festival, various pieces and photos have been placed in our Festival archives and can be viewed at The Blackmore Theatre at a pre-arranged time.  If you wish to view this, then please contact publicity@blackmoretheatre.co.uk leaving your name and contact details.  We shall then get back to you.

We are considering arranging a much smaller and Exmouth only based Festival when circumstances permit.  In particular, we shall need a small team of volunteers willing to organise such an event.  Please do keep checking in to this page or our Blackmore Theatre Facebook page from time to time for any information regarding such a Festival.
