The ABC Drama Club started in 1991, when a group of people from Afonwen, Babell and Caerwys decided to form a committee. The play is usually staged in November, and held in the Caerwys Town Hall, with rehearsals beginning many months prior. Apart from the actors, there are many local people who help in other ways, such as with the costumes, stage effect, make up and lighting.

Alan Ayckburn's  -  Season's Greetings 

 

Seasons Greetings

Now we don't want to start Christmas like this, do we? 

Cheating at Snakes & Ladders, fighting over comic books…Christmas has arrived in the Bunker household along with family and friends.

But as the children lurk just out of sight, it is the adults who are letting the side down.

 Presiding over the festivities are two warring Uncles, one a kindly, incompetent Doctor with an interminable puppet show to perform;

the other a bullying retired security guard who dominates the TV, brings toy guns for his nieces and determines there is a thief in their midst.

 The action takes place in the home of Neville and Belinda Bunker.

 The year is 1973.

Drinking Habits

ABC Drama Production 2012

Drinking Habits ( A Farce ) by Tom Smith

The 2012 ABC Drama production, was performed at the Caerwys Town Hall on Thursday 8th November, Friday 9th and Saturday 10th November. The performances were a sellout for the three evenings.

Accusations, mistaken identities and romance run wild in this traditional, laugh out loud farce.

Two nuns at the Sisters of Perpetual Sewing have been secretly making wine to keep the convent's doors open but Paul and Sally, reporters and former fiancées, are hot on their trail.

They go undercover but their presence, combined with the addition of a new nun, spurs paranoia throughout the convent that spies have been sent from Rome to shut them down.

Wine and secrets are inevitably spilled as everyone tries to preserve the convent and reconnect with lost loves.
