An evening full of comedy and humour

An evening full of comedy and humour

To brighten up the dark February days, the Hamburg Players invite you to an evening of three short comic plays.


Alas, Poor Fred

by James Saunders

A peaceful armchair conversation between Ernest and his wife Ethel. They are chatting about how funny it must be to get cut in half, as Fred was.


Ernest Pringle Mark Lyndon
Ethel Pringle Amy Lee


Joe and Stew’s Theatre of Brotherly Love and Financial Success

by Jacquelyn Reingold

What happens when two theatre-loving cockroaches are facing the end of the world?


Joe Harald Djürken
Stew Martina Plieger


A Slight Accident

by James Saunders

The sound of a gunshot sets the scene. Penelope tries to explain to her neighbours Camilla and Roger just what did happen and how it was all simply an accident.

This is our award-winning entry at FEATS 2017 (Festival of European Anglophone Theatrical Societies), taking home the awards for second best production and best actor.


Penelope Valerie Doyle
