Vengeance - The Demise of Oscar Wilde
Book by John Merrigan | Music & Lyrics by Danielle Morgan / John Merrigan
Orchestration by Liam Jurgens
FATDAN PRODUCTIONS is delighted to announce the performance of VENGEANCE, a brand-new musical drama about the demise of Oscar Wilde.
Performance at the Tivoli Theatre, Wimborne on 30 September 2021 at 7.30pm
Oscar Wilde has beguiled us for generations, and his literary works are as relevant today as when he wrote them over 100 years ago. Vengeance is a fresh narrative that tells his story through the eyes of his life-long friend, Robbie Ross, as participant and narrator, with all original orchestrated music, songs and stage performance. Faithful to the true characters and real events that took place, it’s a moving, insightful and compelling drama.
Join Fatdan Productions on this exciting journey, and be part of the long-awaited return of live theatre!

When murder is the end and not the beginning
When a house party gathers at Gull’s Point, the clifftop home of Lady Tressilian (Ann McColgan-Clark), Neville Strange (Sam Moulton) finds himself caught between his ex-wife Audrey (Tracey Nicholls) and his new flame Kay (Jo Edington). A nail-biting thriller, the play probes the psychology of jealousy in the shadow of a savage and brutal murder.
The play, directed by Paul Dodman, is adapted from Agatha Christie’s 1944 novel, which she described as one of her favourite stories. Also in the cast are David Beddard, James Bourner, Rob Cording-Cook, Chris Durham, Tony Feltham, Lindsay McGowan and Richard Neal.
This amateur production of Towards Zero is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd on behalf of Samuel French Ltd.
Towards Zero opens on Thursday 21 October at the Tivoli Theatre, West Borough, Wimborne, BH21 1LT, with further performances on Friday 22 and Saturday 23 October. Evening performances are at 7.30pm, Saturday matinee at 2.30pm.

Maskers Theatre Company presents
Out of Focus
An overbooked village hall leads to hilarious confusions! As the locals arrive for the various activities, they suddenly find themselves involved in Evonne's, the Vicar's wife, first ever pantomime. There is bossy Brownie leader, Helen, trying to get her claws into delicious David. Sexy secretary Linda is threatening to derail Bob and Kath's marriage. Wayne is more concerned with finding a phone signal than remembering his cues and will anyone ever actually want to listen to one of Leonard's illustrated slide shows on steam trains, spiders or Genghis Khan? Before long it's a chaotic mix of painted sandwiches, broken wands, and an embarrassing incident in Tesco's wine aisle
"How will they sort this mess out?!"
A warm welcome and licenced bar awaits you at Maskers' easy-to-find Studio Theatre. Plenty of local car parks are available off Shirley High Street (free after 6pm). See website for further location and parking details.
