London Rep returns to Wimborne

After two years of uncertainty, the London Repertory Company returns to Dorset later this month with five plays in as many weeks at the Tivoli Theatre in Wimborne

So make a note in your diaries. The season opens on Wednesday 27th July with the Alan Ayckbourn favourite Taking Steps and marks a major change of regular venue for the ever-popular company.

After establishing itself as a much-loved attraction over four years at the Shelley Theatre in Bournemouth, the company found itself sidelined by covid in 2020. 

When the Shelley didn’t re-open, the Players first tried the Tivoli last year, staging a single production of  Ira Levin’s crime thriller Death Trap. It was such a success that a full Wimborne summer season is running this year. 

Featuring a cast of familiar faces from previous years plus some exciting new actors, the LRPs programme at the Tivoli this summer also includes Francis Durbridge’s The Small Hours ( Wed 3rd - Sat 6th August),  Noel Coward’s Fallen Angels (Wed 10th - Sat 13th August) and JB Priestley’s  I have Been Here Before ( Wed 17th - Saturday 20th August. The closing show will be Mike Leigh’s classic and much-loved observational comedy Abigail’s Party (Tues 23rd to Thurs 25th August).
