STAG presents its first production for its 60th Anniversary Revival Season: The Secret Tent, by Elizabeth Addyman, directed by Robert Harsley, at the Strathmore Community Hall from February 27 to March 9.
Strathmore Theatrical Arts Group is celebrating its 60th year of producing theatre in the Strathmore area by reviving some of our earliest productions. The first is Elizabeth Addyman’s The Secret Tent originally produced by STAG in 1959.
The play opens with Ruth and Christopher Martyn getting ready to go out for the evening – he to an old reunion dinner and she to the pictures with a girlfriend. She does not return home and the police eventually come and tell Christopher they have found a murdered girl identified as Ruth. They have investigated her past – about which Christopher was in complete ignorance. Apart from the shattering news of her death, he is very upset at what the police have told him about her.Therefore, when she turns up – unharmed but obviously having gone through a distressing time, she is bewildered by Christopher’s changed attitude towards her. How she eventually explains the reason for her recent disappearance and how she regains Christopher’s love and trust, gives a wonderfully emotional climax to this taut and dramatic play.
