The Masque Players Kesgrave


Here is a list of the plays, that the Masque Players have performed. You can get through quite a lot in 70 years!

Some we liked so much that we performed them more than once. As well as the main productions, the list includes some one-act plays.  

Thanks to all the members who have contributed Information on these productions ~ most notably Reg for letting the Group download from his site.
