5 - 20 February, 2010 - Holy Trinity Church
February 2010 saw us move indoors for the first time with our first Winter Season. The stunning 18th Century Holy Trinity Church on Guildford High Street whose epic grandeur made for a spectacular setting.
In keeping with the architecture of Holy Trinity Church, the setting was the elegant but volatile Regency period: a time when aristocratic families were still coming to terms with the changes in society brought about by the horrors of the French Revolution, whilst at the same time young men and women were discovering a new freedom in art, romance and adventure. Director Charlotte Conquest and Designer Lucy Wilkinson returned from 2009's The Taming of the Shrew to take charge of this critically acclaimed production.

"Simply Stunning" Remote Goat
"Seething with emotion and raw passion" Surrey Advertiser
"I am eleven years old and your wonderful performance of Romeo and Juliet was my first ever Shakespeare experience. I really enjoyed watching your fabulous actors and actresses re-create the Tudor tale. I hope to watch another of your Shakespeare plays, thank you for making my first Shakespeare so wonderful."
"I have lived in Reigate for 3 years and just wish I had known about you sooner - it's so hard to find good quality theatre outside of London."
"Sitting in the church gave it so much atmosphere, equal to the Globe for setting & a feeling of being part of the history of the church & part of the play too. Beautiful."
"The production was absolutely fantastic. One of the best nights in the theatre I have ever had."
