Welcome to Players Theatre

Players Theatre is based in Cheadle Hulme, Cheshire, about nine miles south of Manchester. We have our own theatre with bar and lounge facilities. Established in the 1920s, we usually perform four main productions throughout our season. The  youth stage their own productions in the season and have the opportunity to become involved with the adult section plays. You can use the menu at the top of the page to find out more about us and our activities. We also have a varied social calendar throughout the year which non-members are welcome to attend. More information on upcoming events can be seen on the What’s On page.

We look forward to seeing you at the theatre.

ENTERTAINING ANGELS Review By Association of Community Theatres

ENTERTAINING ANGELS Review By Association of Community Theatres

The play’s title refers to the Christmas practise of treating all guests – be they kings or peasants – as if one was entertaining angels – and the story is played out against a background of faith, loss, family secrets, confessions and forgiveness. In other words, it is about challenges faced by many families in the course of their lives whether they are Christian or not. It is a deep, challenging play, in which the actors, as well as telling their stories, have to believe in the issues and situations in which they find themselves involved. It is laced with a deal of humour, which is sometimes vicious and sometimes joyous. Apart from dealing with the death of a loved one, everyone has a problem of their own, which they are searching their consciences about, in which decisions have to be made. There is bitterness, recrimination, confession and help needed in the story and, I felt, by your interpretation, that I wasn’t just watching actors at work. Each characterisation seemed to go deeper than that.
