While we wait for the return of both indoor and non-socially-distant productions, the Dulwich Players remain committed to developing new ways to perform and reach our audience. You can now view our "Lockdown Productions" on our very own YouTube channel and we are constantly working on new 'zoomed' plays to keep ourselves busy and you entertained. Scroll down for details of what we have planned for the future. In the meantime, live theatre returns next month!

With the restrictions on outdoor live performances being lifted, this is a shorterned (but no less enjoyable) version of our June 2018 production, featuring two 'old' and two 'new' tales, providing an opportunity to rediscover the magic we created two years ago. Once again, there will be familiar characters, such as Rapunzel and Hans-My-Hedgehog - and some unexpected ones too - including the Three Little Men - each tale being full of delicious and unexpected twists and turns.
We will perform the plays straight through without an interval and with an approximate running time of 80 minutes.
Please note that the safety of our audience and cast is of paramount importance and we intend to fully comply with government guidance. Social distancing measures for all will be in place and we therefore have to restrict numbers. For this reason, each booking will be treated as a separate 'household' and there will be a maximum of 4 tickets per booking.
Further information on how the performances will be managed will be emailed to ticket holders in the week before the performance.
Tickets: £10 through Ticketsource - small fee payable- from Saturday 25 July. All tickets must be booked through this website in advance and there will be no sales on the door.
Please note also that we will not be offering Front of House refreshments (of course you are welcome to bring your own) nor will we be able to hire out chairs as in previous years, so please bring your own seating, be it chairs or rugs.
By purchasing a ticket you permit us to share your contact details with NHS Test and Trace if required.
Assistant dogs only.
Ticket Source, will be open from 10am, Saturday 25 July.
