Bookings available for Single Spies

'Single Spies' by Alan Bennett

Directed by Stephen Beggs

Tuesday 9th to Saturday 13th April at 8pm in Southbank

A double bill of one act plays about two of the most notorious spies of modern times, Guy Burgess and Anthony Blunt.

'An Englishman Abroad' depicts Burgess living in lonely exile in Moscow in 1958, seven years after his defection. 'A Question of Attribution' meanwhile sees Sir Anthony Blunt, Surveyor of the Queen's Pictures, encountering Her Majesty in the corridors of Buckingham Palace as he works on her paintings. Is the Queen aware that he may not be what he seems?

Previous Shows

Southbank Players have been operating in the current premises since 1999. Before that we were two separate but closely linked groups - Trident and Osborne Players - both long standing companies with a wide range of experience and an interest in producing challenging drama of a high quality. We've made a list of our previous productions available.

Our building was originally a scout hall and over the past fifteen years we've made a number of improvements to the premises, including the installation oflighting and sound systems, central heating, retractable seating bank, and a refurbished kitchen.
