The year 2001 marks the 75th anniversary of the drama group which was to become the Wilmslow Guild Players. In order to mark this milestone and to share in the Guilds celebrations, we will be presenting a production which will include extracts from the plays originally presented in our first season - all the way back in 1926.
The plays were:

  • Iphigenia in Tauris by Euripides

  • King John by Shakespeare

  • Pan in Pimlico (one act play)

  • The Price of Coal (one act play)

  • Thirty Minutes in a Street (one act play)
