One Night in November at The Electric Theatre 15 – 18 November 2017

 
Alan Pollock’s touching love story set against a background of conspiracy. 

REVIEW:  ‘At the end of this moving play, as the cast, clutching candles, emerged from the shadows to take their bows, there was no immediate burst of applause. For just a few seconds, the audience were too moved, too deep in thought, to clap. A sure sign of a great piece of theatre.’ Pauline Surrey (N.O.D.A.)

REVIEW: ‘In the scale of Things Difficult To Stage, I would have thought a living-room getting smashed up by the Luftwaffe would be right up there, but Guildburys did it to superb effect. That was the emotional, dramatic and visual climax to a very thought-provoking show at the Electric in Guildford last night….. as always with Guildburys, every aspect of the production was top-notch; It was a fine evening’s theatre.’ Nigel Dams (SARDINES MAGAZINE)

It is the Autumn of 1940 and Katie, a young Coventry clerk, waits on the station platform in Henley in Arden, Warwickshire. There she meets Michael, a language don working as a code-breaker at Bletchley Park. As their romance deepens, Michael is secretive about his work. But when he and a colleague work on deciphering a coded enemy message and deduce that Coventry is to be attacked and pounded into rubble, he faces an agonising dilemma. Should he warn Katie and her family about the impending raid, risking disgrace and prosecution under the official secrets act ?

Guildburys were thrilled to welcome the playwright, Alan Pollock to the Friday evening performance of his play.

Alan commented on our Facebook page ‘Prolonged and well-deserved applause for a great cast last night. Thanks for the most moving of evenings.’
