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.

Next Show - Our 2017 project, Mind Games - 4 short plays by Neil LaBute
Small image of flyer

Midland's summer projects shows return for the second year with a fantastic evening of four short plays by acclaimed stage and screen writer, Neil LaBute, 
arguably the most provocative playwright in modern theatre for his frank examinations of human nature and the extent to which people deceive and manipulate. 

All four plays examine the mind games played within relationships.

We will perform these plays in 2 different venues over 4 consecutive nights:

-  Queen's Social Club in Sheffield (28 & 29 June)
-  Chapel Playhouse, Chapel en le Frith (30 June and 1 July)

Next Main Show - Being Decided

Our next Show at the University of Sheffield Drama Studio will run from 20th to 23rd September 2017. We are currently in the process of choosing the play, and will then cast it. Keep an eye on our Facebook page if you want to be involved

Previous Show -  - Neighbourhood Watch by Alan Ayckbourn

Very small flyer
Our most recent show was the comedy drama
 'Neighbourhood Watch' by the highly popular and prolific Alan Ayckbourn. It was first performed in 2011.

Our production ran from the 5th to the 8th of April 2017 and was well received by audiences

When Martin and Hilda’s peace in their new home is shattered by vandalism, they form a Watch committee with their eccentric neighbours. But the situation deteriorates hilariously as their ideas escalate - and nobody knows where to draw the line. A “painfully funny and truthful play” - The Stage, 2011.
