Welcome to the Stourbridge Theatre Company Website
STC are delighted to be presenting two plays ''The Last Tango in Stourbridge'' and ''Hum Drum'' both written by local writers, David Tristam and David Morris.
Previous plays by both authors have been received with great success by our audiences. The plays will be presented in the "script in hand" format. They will be rehearsed and directed but the cast carry their scripts on stage. If you have not experienced this style of performance before you may think it's a bit odd; however, surprisingly, after a few minutes the scripts will not even be noticed as the audiences are totally caught up in the characters and the hilarious comedy!
The plays will be performed in The Wollaston Room Studio Theatre at Stourbridge Town Hall.
An evening of Comedy, Friday 13th September, 7:30pm
A glass of wine, or a soft drink, is included in the ticket price.
The Snow Queen is an original fairy tale written by Hans Christian Andersen, first published in December 1844.
The story tells of the struggle between good and evil though the eyes of two children; Gerda and her friend, Kai. Gerda is a little girl who searches for her friend Kai when he is bewitched and imprisoned by the Snow Queen in her ice palace. Gerda's innocence charms all good people and animals she meets on the way. They help her to the royal court, and on to Lapland, where good conquers evil and the children are reunited.
Ron Nicol, an award-winning Scottish playwright, later adapted the story for the stage. Much later the story became the basis of the tremendously successful Walt Disney film, Frozen.
The play will be directed by Terri Wood

The Hound of the Baskervilles is the third of the four crime novels written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle featuring the detective Sherlock Holmes, it’s a story of spine-chilling mystery, suspense, humour and terror. The story was originally serialised in The Strand Magazine from August 1901 to April 1902 and is set largely on Dartmoor.
Sir Henry is heir to the vast Baskerville fortune, a legacy that comes with a family curse: death at the fangs of a horror that prowls the moor. Only Holmes can stop the beast. While mysterious lights signal Baskerville Hall and the hound terrifies the countryside, the sleuthing begins and suspicion falls on sinister servants, butterfly collectors, ladies in distress, and escaped convicts. Who wrote the letter that summoned the hound? Is Sir Henry’s romance with the lovely Kathy doomed? Is the supernatural at work………
The play will be directed by Sandra Griswold
