High Street Players are delighted to announce that live theatre will be returning to Harpenden!
Our understanding of the new rules announced today, 9th September, are that we can go ahead as we are performing in a Covid-secure venue. Most bookings are for groups of 1, 2 or 3 people so that is below the maximum number of six. Please note that there should be no mixing of groups, so don’t interact with others at the interval. And keep your distance!
But we will continue to monitor the situation and update here as needed.
We will be performing a new version by Simon Stephens of Henrik Ibsen’s gripping drama “A Doll’s House” at Katherine Warington School from Friday 18th to Sunday 20th September. This production has been specially created to follow the Government guidelines for the performing arts.
The plot centres on Nora Helmer, a seemingly happy married housewife who once secretly and illegally borrowed a large amount of money to pay for her husband’s recuperation from a serious illness. When Krogstad, a money lender, threatens to expose her actions Nora’s world falls apart.. Universal themes of money, power, love and honesty are given fresh relevance in this version which was first performed at the Young Vic in 2012.
Tickets are £10, please go to our “Tickets” page for information.
