AN OSWESTRY drama company is back for a new season with a double whammy of entertainment.

The Attfield Theatre Company is bringing a double-helping of entertainment to the Guildhall stage next month with Cagebirds and the Regina Monologues.

Cagebird, a drama from playwright David Campton and directed by Debbie Jones, is set inside an undefined institution where 'despite the locked doors, the six inmates seem fairly sanguine until a new resident is introduced by The Mistress and his promise of a better future on the outside sends them into turmoil'.

Second offering, Regina Monologues, directed by India Watson, tells the tales of Henry VIII's six wives but with a 21st Century spin.

The wives – with their distinct personalities – give their views on their marriages to the king and 'unlock the secrets of the royal bedroom as Henry ages from young stud, through mature lover, ageing lecher and finally to ulcerous invalid'.

Listen to stories by straight-laced Catherine of Aragon, the vivacious Anne Boleyn, romantic Jane Seymour, laid-back 'internet bride' Anne of Cleves, Kathryn Howard the confused teenager and finally Henry's nurse and companion Katherine Parr.

The play will run from Monday, September 30 until Saturday, October 5.

Tickets are priced at £9 for members and £10 for non-members and can be purchased from or by calling 07544113511.
