Cultural Crumbs – November 2021

RB Writes previews what we can look forward around RH1/2.


Chipstead Players Present On Golden Pond.

On Golden Pond is currently showing on Broadway, its cast headed up by Hollywood actor James Earl Jones. The Chipstead Players, with their talented bunch of actors and crew may not perform their adaptation to a Broadway-sized crowd this week (8th November). But, having seen a couple of Chipstead Productions, I guarantee that a Broadway performance is guaranteed. So what you waiting for? Time to book a ticket or two.

The play takes a touching and humorous look at the dynamics of family relationships. Especially, how we forgive and reconcile. The main protagonists, an elderly couple, are taking their latest and probably last summer vacation in a cottage on a Maine lake. It is their chance to come to terms with the husband’s advancing age and his ongoing estrangement from his newly engaged daughter.

Tickets can be booked here. Why not make an evening of it and enjoy a meal at the neighbouring White Hart beforehand?

Until Saturday 13th.
