The Next GADS Production is Temple

In 2015 the Donmar Warehouse put on a new play by Steve Waters called Temple. It is based on the events of October 2011 when a group of protestors, under the name Occupy London, made camp outside St Paul’s Cathedral. On 21st October a building that had kept open through floods, the Blitz and terrorist threats closed its doors. On 28th October the City of London initiated legal action against Occupy to begin removing them from outside the Cathedral.

Temple is a fictional account of these events, set in the heart of a very British crisis – a crisis of conscience, a crisis of authority and a crisis of faith.

Read-throughs of the play took place in the Children’s Chapel in St Mary’s Church on Tuesday 17th May and Thursday 19th May at 7.45pm. If anyone is interested in being part of this production, acting or technical team, please contact GADS via email.

  1. Hi GADS:

    Just wanted to tell you how very much my wife and I enjoyed last night’s (Fri) production of The Alchemist. I read Ben Jonson’s text many years ago but have never seen it on stage. It was a superb, very professional show with some really stunning performances, so allow me to congratulate Ben Butler-Cole on his fabulous piece of directing.

    We live in Horsmonden and shall make it a point of coming to Goudhurst every time GADS produces a play! I would certainly welcome information of future productions and possible auditions.

    Many thanks and kindest regards,
    John Izbicki
