Reigate Methodist Players are hoping to literally bring the house down with their latest production. The Players are presenting a double bill of one-act plays to raise money to demolish their outdated church hall and replace it with a multi- purpose community centre.

The plays, A Respectable Funeral by Jimmie Chinn and Hit Man by Barry Lambert, could be the final ones to be staged in the Rank Hall.

They will be performed from Thursday, November 20, to Saturday, November 22, at 8pm. The hall has been the venue for numerous amateur shows over the past 50 years but funds raised for the redevelopment have reached £770,000 and are approaching the target needed to begin the first phase of the rebuilding project.

Directed by Virginia King, the plays are different in style and setting but feature events and personalities which develop from outwardly normal beginnings.

Barry Lambert, who lives in Warlingham and has had several of his plays staged by the Warlingham Thespians and other local groups, has waived his royalty fees for the performance to help with the fundraising.

Tickets at £10, which include an interval meal of fish and chips or an alternative, are available from Stephen Tickell on 01737 760330.
