St Paul's Players (Southville) relocated from Beauley Road to St Paul's Church in 1999,
but we have now decided to continue as SPP Theatre Company in a slimmer format.
Although we are leaving the church as our base we will continue to put on quality shows for our followers, hopefully in Southville.
Please check this page for regular updates on progress.

We are delighted to announce that "The Arrangement", by Toby Rome,
won the Geoffrey Whitworth Award for best original script in the 2016 Avon one-act festival, performed at the Backwell Playhouse.
Jo Cross was nominated for the best actress award.
Toby is one of our more prolific writers, and was awarded second place in 2014 with "Twenty Twenty" at the same venue.

This was held on Friday March 18th in St Paul's Church, Coronation Rd, Southville.
The evening opened with a repeat of "The Arrangement" by Toby Rome (see above).
It was followed by the first Bristol appearance of The Second Majors Beer Band, Joe Marsden's new project, playing Bavarian Oompah style covers of modern classics.
The evening ended with a reading of one of Christine Sargent's excellent monologues, followed by a rehearsed reading of "Her Tongue" by Henry Arthur Jones.
