2020 - Present
This year we celebrate 100 years
of the Progressive Players

Our programme for 2020 consists mainly of previously performed plays, selected to represent every decade since the founding of the Progressive Players in 1920.

However, the coronavirus pandemic meant that we had to temporarily close the Little Theatre in March, forcing the cancellation of several of our centenary celebration plays.
