Nothing But The Roof @ Woodford Community Centre
Aug 21 @ 7:30 pm – 10:30 pm

Poster for Nothing But The Roof at WWMCC“Anthem? Legend? Ghost? Or Thief? Which one of these, will you be?”
NOTHING BUT THE ROOF is a comedy drama about three friends in 2016, who find themselves in the same place at the same time. That place being the rooftop of a block of flats.
Although NOTHING BUT THE ROOF deals with issues of grief, debt, unemployment and the uncertainties of life. At its core, beats a heart which is in essence, a story about friendship.

NOTHING BUT THE ROOF first premiered at POYNTON PLAYERS theatre in March 2017, for a three-night run. Then a one-off performance at the SCOUT HUT in Sutton Macclesfield, at the end of October.
The play was then chosen to kick off the Powerhouse Plays season at HOPEMILL THEATRE in Manchester the following year.
It is only now, almost eighteen months after HOPEMILL, that the schedules of all those involved with the production, have been able to come together once more to showcase this play.
From the premiere performance this play has been very much a work in progress and after each performance it has evolved. What we started with at POYNTON, was different to what we ended up with at HOPEMILL and we will now use the experience from performing at HOPEMILL, to move the production on another step yet again.
This August, the cast of three will be back on that roof again. They hope you will join them there.

REVIEWS FROM THE CRITICS AT HOPEMILL
“This is an important play which raises some interesting points about modern Britain and one that should be seen by as many people as possible, it will certainly make you laugh and offer some food for thought…” MATT FORREST for Opening Night Review.
“…Captivating with its twists and turns as each character evolves throughout the evening, with friendship at its core. This story is heart warming and thought provoking…” KATIE LEICESTER for Number 9 reviews.
“…Nothing But The Roof appears to be a promising and innovative piece of theatre that rather unusually pitches the menacing discomfort of a thriller against a razor-sharp script. Acknowledged as still being in the embryonic development stage, this is a show that already represents an original welcome change from the usual outputs of conventional theatre world.” THE GM REVIEWER.
COMMENTS FROM AUDIENCE MEMBERS
“Awesome in both script and direction. If you get the chance, go see this production. Very strong cast. It deserves to go further than local…”
“Saw NBTR in Macclesfield. It was superb. You really felt you were living the emotions with each character. Really well acted. Great job.”
“Fantastic, funny, poignant and well written play. A really enjoyable night out. Highly recommended.”
“One of the best plays I saw this year. Great writing and strong acting full of emotion, comedy and issues.”
“This is an exceptional play…both funny and thought provoking. A must see!”

Around The World in 80 Days @ Woodford Community Centre

Around The World in 80 Days @ Woodford Community Centre

The fabulously wealthy Victorian gentleman Phileas Fogg wagers his life’s fortune that he can circumnavigate the globe in just eighty days.

Along with his hapless valet Passepartout, he sets out on a dazzling escapade that takes him from the misty alleys of London to the exotic subcontinent and on to the Wild West as they race against the clock on a dazzliing succession of trains, steamers, a wind-propelled sledge and an elephant.

Laura Eason’s celebrated adaptation of Jules Verne’s classic novel was seen at the New Vic Theatre, Stoke, and Manchester’s Royal Exchange before receiving its London première at the St. James Theatre in 2015.

Press Quotes

‘A lot of fun… Laura Eason’s script runs with clockwork precision… bursting with imagination, this exuberant whistle-stop tour through Verne is a trip worth making’

The Stage – ‘An eccentric treat… fun and imaginative’

The Independent – “A magnificently preposterous romp…”

Clare Brennan, The Observer – “Rollicking good fun..”

John Hargreaves, Express & Star – “High Octane, comic entertainment…”

Join us on this exciting whirlwind tour around the world with Woodford Payers. Tickets will be on sale from 1st September 2020.
