About The Monday Players
The Monday Players drama society is based at Escrick, a small village, about seven miles south of York City centre. Our venue, recently refurbished, is the village hall, where we have produced live theatre for the last twenty years.
Members come from wide area, ten miles radius or more, including York and Selby, but we also have the fellowship of family, friends and many other supporters who like to be involved not only in productions but also social events such as theatre trips, Summer garden party and Christmas celebrations.
We are a welcoming, enthusiastic and supportive group; we have high standards of performance and production; we enjoy immensely the recreational benefits of our activities.
In December 2013 we celebrated our twentieth anniversary and fortieth production since our foundation by revisiting our first production, when a small group decided to perform Season’s Greetings, by Alan Ayckbourn; the stage, set and technical effects were very modest indeed. Since 1993 we have prospered, developed and maintained our stage craft, technical expertise and the acquisition of equipment, costume, props and furniture. We stage two productions a year – May and November – and enjoy the patronage of many people in the area.
