I hope that you’re all well. We have a few updates for you, as follows.
Sean Duvall and Sarah Lorenz have been incredibly busy rehearsing the show, which open on August 24th.
I Am My Own Wife
I Am My Own Wife is the fascinating and extraordinary true story of Charlotte von Mahlsdorf, an East Berlin transvestite and celebrated antique collector who survived two of the last century’s most brutal regimes – the Nazis and the Communists. But don’t let the subject matter mislead you, I Am My Own Wife succeeds powerfully because it celebrates humanity and the perseverance of the human spirit.
Tickets are on sale now, so don’t delay and head over to the ticket link:
Auditions for the November play, REMEMBER REMEMBER will be held on Monday 7th and Saturday 12th August at 7:30pm
The cast is as follows:
- Barbara Andrews – Julia’s mother – Playing age 40 – 60
- Julia Marshall – Barbara’s daughter – Playing age 18 – 30
- Peter Andrews – Barbara’s husband – Playing age 40 – 60
- Kenny – Julia’s boyfriend – Playing age 18 – 30
- Ray – An intruder – Playing age 18 – 40
- Samantha – A surprise – Playing age 18 – 40
The playing ages are a rough guide. It is more important that Barbara and Peter are of a similar age, Julia is of the right age to be Julia’s daughter and Kenny is of appropriate age to be Julia’s boyfriend.
This play has been specially rewritten for Knutsford Little Theatre and this will be the World Premiere of this play before it transfers to the West End and a film will be made soon.
No pressure, but the author will be attending and first four nights and early in rehearsal he will be joining us for a read through online.
If you wish to read the entire play, you are welcome to pop to the theatre on any night except Monday to read the script, but the scripts cannot be taken from the theatre.

The free date for 2024 will be June/July, matching our usual season schedule and hopefully we will be able to continue with the extended runs over 2 weeks.
We’re continuing to run external lets, serving two purposes for us. Firstly, it establishes us as a great place to visit in the town and cements our role as a provider of great entertainment within the community. Secondly, it provides us with additional, much needed funds and allows us the opportunity to .
