Waiting in the Wings

We are delighted to announce the new dates for Waiting in the Wings at the OSO Arts Centre in Barnes.
You can book tickets here for June 4th – 6th 2021

The  plays will be  presented to a socially-distanced audience and rehearsed online or outdoors on Barnes Green as we did for our last production Brief Encounters.

They are all about waiting in one way or another – something that seems very appropriate as we all become used to waiting for a return to normality.

Performed and written by members of the professional Actors and Writers London group, they provide short insights into all kinds of waiting – for the right time, the right person or the right decision.
A combination of comic situations and serious dilemmas, they explore what can happen in the space that opens up as we wait.
The waiting is nearly over, the actors are ready and the lights are dimming – welcome to the show…

Future Plans

Life Changes

by Carolyn Pertwee


A collection of short plays on the comings and goings of love.

A mixture of comedy and tragedy, these plays tackle subjects from gender identity to Internet dating via parenthood and lust. Love in many guises

Written by Carolyn Pertwee a local professional playwright and actress, Life Changes is the companion piece to her quartet of plays Sexologically Speaking which were presented at OSO in 2007 to rave notices and sell-out houses.

We were rehearsing this production in March 2020 as the pandemic struck and we were one of the many theatre companies forced to postpone.  We are looking forward to bringing this production to the OSO Arts Centre in the near future.

Directed by Maurice Thorogood
Produced by Julia Haythorn
