The Comedy Of Terrors (theatre)

Tamara Wilder
 Ropemaker Theatre Company is a new company, founded in March 2011 by Hailsham resident John Wilders, a professional musician and actor, with many Shakespearean roles to his credit. John has produced two plays locally in the last few years: 'Love And Life' at the Underground Theatre in 2009 and 'The Mystery Of A Woman' at Hailsham Pavilion in 2010. The Company plans to bring a variety of live theatre productions to Hailsham and to strengthen the development of arts in the region. All their productions will employ professional actors.

The first Ropemaker production will be The Comedy Of Terrors written by John Goodrum. First produced in 2003, the play is a fast-moving madcap comedy of multiple mistaken identities. Five roles are played by two actors who, at the Pavilion, will be Aonghus Weber and Tamara Wilder.

But then the real Fiona arrives ...
