Dorchester community play postponed

DORCHESTER Community Play Association  has announced that its seventh community play, Spinning the Moon, has been postponed until Easter 2021 in the light of the Coronavirus situation.

The company was gearing up for the performances of Spinning the Moon at Thomas Hardye School in April. Rehearsals were under way with a cast of 150 enthusiastic amateurs.

Written by professional playwright Stephanie Dale, the two-hour play set in the turbulent years immediately after the Wars of the Roses, when society was changing and the future was uncertain for many people.

It is intended that Spinning the Moon will be performed over the Easter holiday in 2021.

The community play treasurer Mike Beesley says: “We want to thank everyone who has helped and supported us so far, financially and with practical aid. We are extremely grateful for the support we have had, and continue to have, from our sponsors”
Anyone who has already bought tickets for this year’s performances should contact Dorchester Arts to discuss refund and carry-forwards for next year. Please do this from Monday, 23rd March to allow the arts centre to put together the necessary financial arrangements. Dorchester Arts is in the Corn Exchange, High West Street, Dorchester, telephone 01305 266926.
Updates on the play can be found on the Spinning the Moon website and on the DCPA social media pages.
