DAISY PULLS IT OFF

2 - 6 July 2024
Players Theatre, Hurstpierpoint
7.30pm (bar open from 7.00pm)

Daisy Meredith, the new girl, is the first scholarship student to attend the Grangewood School for Girls. The privileged students are determined to make Daisy look bad in the eyes of the administration. The administration has its own problems, financial ones. Daisy wins over her chums and saves the school when she cracks a secret code, finds a treasure and saves the life of her chief nemesis all on the same night!

Tickets can be booked online, or in person during our Saturday morning box office hours 10.00am - 12.00pm, in the month leading up to the play.

Daisy Pulls It Off is a spiffing yarn that is both funny and charming! Set in the 1920s, it is a parody of life at a girls' boarding school with a clear message to us all to be more accepting of others.
Written by Denise Deegan. Our production is directed by Ian Amos.

THE FATHER

16 - 21 September 2024
Players Theatre, Hurstpierpoint
7.30pm (bar open from 7.00pm)

Tickets will be on sale through the Hurst Festival box offce later in the year.

Andre, a persecuted man, refuses to tolerate his circumstances any longer. His favourite watch is stolen by an unnecessary "helper," while his scheming daughter Anne tries to take away his beloved flat. His other daughter, Elise, never visits, and Anne's partner Pierre threatens violence if Andre doesn't cooperate. Strangers claim his flat is no longer his, and Andre, though aged, remains determined to assert his authority. However, his faculties may be fading as he experiences dementia, showcasing the harsh reality of physical and mental decline.

This is a darkly humorous and poignant tragic-comic mystery, offering an unsentimental and emotionally intense portrayal of dementia's impact.

Le Père is an award-winning play by the French playwright Florian Zeller that premiered in 2012 in Paris.
Our production, a translation by Christopher Hampton, is directed by Bob Sampson.
