Trinity Players was founded at Holy Trinity Church, Stratford-upon-Avon in 2007 to offer drama as part of worship and as entertainment. From the outset, we determined to highlight the varied talents of a large and active church and to encourage new writing wherever possible. We delight in the creative space of our beautiful and historic building and enjoy sharing it with actors some of whom are not members of the congregation.
Past productions include The House of Bernarda Alba, The Roses of Eyam, Oliver! and Toad of Toad Hall. Original writing has included My Grandfather Sleeps, Autumn 1914 and October 1917 by Steve Newman and adaptations by Ursula Russell of novels Barchester Towers and Under the Greenwood Tree. Classical theatre has included The Trojan Women and Andromeda both by Euripides. Our Shakespeare productions have included A Midsummer Night's Dream, Twelfth Night, Much Ado About Nothing and an adaptation of Pericles . Trinity Players gave the English premiere of a play about Shakespeare by Rowan Williams, Shakeshafte, and later played this at Hoghton Hall in Lancashire where it is set.
