Director’s Note

Welcome to our Spring production. As a society we used to try and find plays with one set and, because of our limited membership, plays which needed 2-3 men and 6-7 women. Our membership has grown considerably and the task has now become to find plays that are different and interesting. We now try to avoid plays which are entitled “Murder at…”. Whilst we cannot hope to please ‘all of the people all of the time’ we will try and produce varied and interesting plays.

Alfie is certainly different and interesting. Although the play is nearly 50 years old its content is still thought-provoking. It is interesting to note how much has changed over the years and how much has remained the same. The play involves many scene changes and has a cast of 18 people. This is a record cast for the BATS. The cast have all assisted in these scene changes, props, costumes and front of house. I would like to thank them all for their help and patience.
