Our Halloween special: 

Fright night at the Rookery café

Following its’ huge success last year, Streatham Theatre Company are returning to the Rookery Café, to host our Streatham Festival evening of storytelling to celebrate Halloween.


Join us as an audience member or a teller of tales as we share spooky, horrifying and gruesome tales in the run up to Halloween.


Our compere is looking for contributions to the evening:

Have you seen a ghost or had an eerie experience? Do you have a poem or piece of prose to read or a ghastly true-life tale to tell? If you want to take part, contact with details.


The event is part of Streatham Theatre Company’s regular monthly workshops and events on all things stagecraft. Come and read, share your tales and listen to our stories.


Prepare to be spooked!

A play for voices by Louis de Bernières
Directed by Alan Scott



Partly in homage to Dylan Thomas’s Under Milk Wood, this play was originally written for radio in 2001. It is a tragi-comic account of a few hours in the lives of some of Louis de Bernières’ neighbours when he lived in Earlsfield during the 1980s and was writing Captain Corelli’s Mandolin.


De Bernières says that he wrote the play to remember and celebrate his local area just as he was about to move away forever.


We hear the local people gossip, joke, reminisce and tell stories, we listen to the voices of the dead in Wandsworth cemetery and we dream as the River Wandle and the Garratt Lane traffic flow by.


This is a play for voices – like a radio play but live!
