CRANBOURNE AMATEUR DRAMATIC SOCIETY presents .
A Dramatic Commemoration of World War I with an evening of 3 short plays
After the Flags and Bands by Allan Williams
Directed by Natalie Jenno
Throughout the First World War we follow a group of women left at home after waving their men off to a war that was expected to be ‘over by Christmas’. Their strong friendship becomes a vital source of support as they cope with the news from the Western Front. Cheerful and stoic on the outside, their more vulnerable feelings are revealed to us through letters and monologues.
The Christmas Truce by Aaron Shepard
Directed by Clare Humphreys
The Christmas Truce of 1914 was described by Arthur Conan Doyle as ‘one human episode amid all the atrocities’. To the playwright it is “one of the most remarkable incidents of World War 1 and perhaps of all military history.” It sprang up spontaneously with thousands of soldiers taking part. In this short adaptation piece of the story, we hear from 4 British soldiers writing to their loved ones about an event that even they could hardly believe to be true.
Lions and Donkeys by Steve Harper
Directed by Natalie Jenno
Unusually, for a play set in the trenches, this is a comedy. Set in a British dugout in September 1918, this is a funny, poignant play about friendship, humanity and survival on the Western Front.
A rich mixture of theatre to mark the centenary of WW1. There are moments which will make the audience laugh and cry, but ultimately CADS have given us a truly uplifting evening.

SO WHAT IS IT?
The objective is to build up more of a professional network in the local area but on an informal basis, and, not too early in the day. A monthly informal drink in the pub - a bit of quite time when you can recharge and chat to a few similar folks.
WHERE AND WHEN?
Jagz (now Station Inn), Station Hill, Ascot each month on the first Wednesday (November 5th), at about 6:00pm until 7.30pm, at the very least, 7:30pm.
Anyone is welcome and so please do invite along any business contacts that you have. There is no need to book in although, if it’s your first time, if you let me know I will keep my eyes peeled for you. There’s no fee, no structure, no thinly disguised (or otherwise) sales pitch. This is an opportunity for you to get to know some more business people, for them to get to know you.
I'm sure that some worthwhile business relationships can be built up in an informal way amongst those who attend.
