The Midland Players amateur dramatic society has been active in Sheffield for nearly 40 years. We perform two plays each year in the University of Sheffield Drama Studio, plus other projects. Originally formed from Midland Bank staff, we have for many years been an open group, welcoming all comers. New members are always welcome both on and off the stage.
One Act Plays
In addition to our regular full length plays we sometimes undertake other projects in different locations, and/or of a different nature from our usual work. Our current project is called 'Common People' and consists of three one-act plays:
- 'On Tidy Endings' by Harvey Fierstein
- 'Celebration' by Harold Pinter
- 'Talk in the Park' by Alan Ayckbourn
