Hayling Island Amateur Dramatic Society presents:


by David Storey

directed by Martin Stevens

Home features the interactions of five eccentric characters.

On a terrace in the grounds of a house, two gentlemen, Harry and Jack, meet and pass the time of day in a conversation which, although somewhat disconnected, is warm, courteous and often amusing. Later they join up with two ladies, Marjorie and Kathleen. Of the two, Marjorie does her best to remain prim and proper while the more raucous Kathleen can find a dirty meaning in the most innocuous words or phrases. The fifth character, Alfred, creates confusion by practising his weight-lifting skills with the furniture.

Slowly we learn more about each of them, where they are and why they are there.

This award-winning play by David Storey had successful runs in London and on Broadway and was adapted for television in the “Play for Today” series.

This amateur production of “Home” is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, LTD.

Interested in acting? See open auditions for more info.

Please Note: This show replaces the previously advertised production of "Rope".

-70 Years On!-

Harlequinade and The Loose Canon

The Southsea Shakespeare Actors (b. 1947) celebrate their 70th birthday with a double helping of scrumptious comedy – all in one lovely evening.

Your first course:.


The race is on as two actors and a critic have to account for every play before the hour is up. Was William Shakespeare actually Christopher Marlowe disguised as Francis Bacon? When a boy dresses as a girl who’s pretending to be a boy, who really wears the trousers? Why are there so many shipwrecks? And who wrote The Four Noble King’s Gentlemen from Verona? A hilarious headlong attempt to deliver the whole canon of Shakespeare plays in 60 minutes or less. Synchronise your watches and fasten your seat belts....

Your second course:


by Terence Rattigan

Written in 1947, the same year that saw the founding of The Southsea Shakespeare Actors, this is a rarely seen comic gem, a wonderfully funny one-act farce about a classical theatre company just before their opening night on tour in Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet.

Their intrigues and dalliances come to light in a series of surprising revelations, with increasingly calamitous consequences, in this affectionate celebration of the lunatic art of putting on a play.

Hayling Island Amateur Dramatic Society presents:


Directed by Dafydd Modig

Written by Dafydd Modig and Anthony Barden

HIADS panto offering this season is the all time classic "Cinderella".

This time the question isn't "will good defeat evil" but rather "will virtue get it's just reward"! Cinders is good, kind and everything that is lovely (Aaaahhh). Unfortunately, her stepmother and sisters are the opposite and treat the poor girl as a lowly drudge (Booooo / Hisssss).

So when you meet her you're bound (just like the soft hearted Buttons) to fall in love with dear Cinders and hope she escapes her wretched life. Fortunately, her Fairy Godmother is on hand to help things move in the right direction - and, with Prince Charming searching for someone to love him just for being himself then, just maybe, everything may work out for Cinders...

Come and see if this story has its happy ending - Oh no it won't - Oh yes it will!

The Lady and Her Music

American Songbook

Elaine Delmar has long been considered one of Britain’s finest singers with a voice and personality that have won audiences the world over. Having appeared on radio, television, concert halls, jazz clubs and theatres both in London’s West End and Broadway, Elaine’s experience is wide and diverse.

She featured in the Ken Russell film “Mahler” and the National Theatre production of David Hare’s play “Map of the World” Elaine is renowned for her classic interpretations of the Great American Songwriters such as Gershwin, Cole Porter, Jerome Kern and Rodgers and Hart. There are few singers who understand the repertoire as well or express it with such dynamic simplicity. Equally at home in concert halls or an intimate cabaret setting, Elaine continues to set the standard for sophisticated rich toned interpretations.

She builds each performance with surefooted musicianship always imbued with the “Spirit of jazz”. Proud to have been awarded the prestigious 2013 All Parliamentary Special Award for Jazz ,she also received great acclaim for her appearance at the BBC Albert Hall Promenade Concert of 2015
