Theatre director Debbie Thompson said the theatre had been running a summer rep since the 1960s, initially with an outside company, but took it 'in house' three years ago.

One Man Protest runs on February 9, 10 and 13, and a Cricket Match on February 11, 12 and 14, with a special Valentine's treat of a floral gift for women in the last-night
