‘The Sociable Plover’ by Tim Whitnall.


Nothing and nobody will stop Roy Tunt from spotting his wild birds and today, a stormy December morning on England’s desolate east coast, he pursues a very special mission. With one more tick in his dog-eared notebook, Roy will have recorded all 596 species on the British List. The prevailing conditions are ideal and the time is perfect to welcome an elusive vagrant from the Asian Steppe, the rare and beautiful Sociable Plover.

Roy sequesters himself away in a bird-spotter’s hide on a stretch of flooded marshland. With a packed lunch and a framed photograph of his ex-wife for company, he watches and waits. But might he, perhaps, have other plans? And who is the tall, dark, suspicious stranger battling his way through the flood waters towards him? All will be revealed – inside the hide...

‘This quirky two-hander has real charm...there is as much humour as pathos to be found in Tim Whitnall’s tightly written script.’ – Time Out

An award-winning, Hitchcockian play - recently made into the feature film The Hide (2008)


“Thrillers” follows last year’s hugely successful tour of Graham Greene’s Travels With My Aunt, which received great comments from the press and captivated audiences who were taken on an irreverent and hilariously entertaining journey:

 “.. the cast’s snappy routines, delivered with expert timing, leave us breathless ..”

”... kept the audience on it’s toes with speed and wit ..”

“... an evening of pure delight ...”
