The Way to Keep Him
by Arthur Murphy
Marriage is not the end of a woman's problems and a close eye has to be kept on a husband, especially if there are attractive young widows about. Mrs Lovemore has her suspicions about her husband who seems to be spending rather a lot of time away from home. Has his friend Sir Brilliant been leading him astray?
Directed by Mark Smith, this play will be our 2013 Edinburgh Fringe Festival production; performed by girls in the sixth form, the play will open in Edinburgh and run for two more nights in Cheltenham.

Oh What a Lovely War
By Len Deighton
“Oh What a Lovely War” was the obvious choice for a musical in this centenary year of World War 1, and while Michael Gove and Tristram Hunt have been battling out the arguments in the pages of Britain’s newspapers, the CLC cast have been enjoying learning the songs sung in the trenches, including some rather dodgy versions of well-known hymns. This is a real school production with girls all the way from LC2 up to SFC2 appearing on stage together. There is a very serious message to this highly political play, but the reason it has become a popular classic of the stage owes more to the energy and fun of the piece than its debatable condemnation of the way the war was fought. I know the families and friends of the cast will come to see the show. It would be marvellous if we could, on this 160th anniversary year, fill the PAC for each of the three performances.
