The Woman Who Cooked Her Husband

A cordon bleu comedy for those who like their humour rich and black – so wicked it makes your toes curl.

Mindgame - Anthony Horowitz

Mindgame – Anthony Horowitz


directed by Ken Swan


Borrowing its template from what used to be called the "psychological thriller" Mindgame is a relentlessly clever and witty comedy.

A prominent author of novels and "true crime"stories enters a secluded mental institution to interview a serial killer who has been confined there for thirty years. The superintendent of the institution does not want the interview to take place and is hostile. In an effort to make the writer to understand what it means to be insane, he restrains him in a straight jacket.

The Merchant of Venice - William Shakespeare - Tickets available HERE

The Merchant of Venice – Shakespeare

directed by Jon Miles



The Merchant of Venice, with its celebrated and moving passages, remains one of Shakespeare’s most beautiful plays.

Depending on whom you ask, it also remains one of his most repulsive.
Was Shakespeare being anti-Semitic, or was he merely exploring anti-Semitism?

Matinees at 2:30pm - December 28th, 30th, 31st and January 1st


CLICK HERE to book online at Pavilions Teignmouth  

A full-length British pantomime, taking the Hans Christian Andersen story as its starting point.

Every year, Queen Green holds a competition so that she might find a suitor for her son, Prince Pea. But her meticulous, and often impossible, challenges have (quite deliberately) left him a bachelor.

So when the mischievous Mandarin Orange kidnaps the original fairy tale Princess, Cinderella, to train his two daughters, will Prince Pea finally be wed?

Or will the unique charms of the boisterous Raspberry Sorbet win his mother over? And in a land where fruit and vegetables walk and talk, what exactly will be hidden beneath that famous mattress?

Friday's Child - Austin Hawkins
to Nov 18

Friday's Child - Austin Hawkins

Friday’s Child is from the pen of local playwright Austin Hawkins. Austin’s one act plays have won a clutch of awards in recent years in theatre festivals for actors, directors and for his original scripts, including ‘Runner Up’ in a National play writing competition.

In this three act play ‘Friday’s Child‘, Alan and Mary Hurst are predictably going about their lives, he an insurance executive and magistrate, and Mary a ‘pillar of the community’, playing bridge, in the Townswomen’s Guild and doing charitable works.

Returning from the office one evening Alan has a chance encounter with a young sex worker, Sharon, and agrees to go back to her flat. Their meeting triggers a chain of unwelcome revelations as Sharon, Alan and Mary have their settled lives challenged and face a catalyst for change.
Hang on to your seats as the verbal sparks start to fly!


Tuesday November 14th @ 7:30pm

Wednesday November 15th @ 7:30pm

Thursday November 16th @ 7:30pm

Friday November 17th @ 7:30pm

Saturday November 18th @ 2:30pm Matinee

Teignmouth Players Return to the Pavilions Teignmouth for Blackadder the Third

Last Summer theTeignmouth Players took to the stage at the new Pavilions Teignmouth auditorium for the first time and hit just the right note with their much acclaimed production of Blackadder II.
It seems that the Players are ‘on a roll’ at this venue as they return this month with a cunning plan to reprise the Blackadder connection with three episodes from Blackadder the Third.   These hugely popular scripts, originally for Television, are written by Ben Elton and Richard Curtis who will generously donate their royalties from this production to Comic Relief.
