Next Production

Currently being decided - watch this space!

Performance dates are set for 24th-27th April 2024 at the DTG Studio, commencing at 7:30pm. As usual, wheelchair access and on-site parking for those with mobility problems is available by prior arrangement. If parking in Highfield Avenue, please do so with care and consideration for local residents.

Tickets are £8.00 per head.

The game of cricket is believed to have its origins in the 13th Century, and a lot has changed in the centuries since. Very probably, however, the characters of the players, and their burning desire to win at all costs, have not. In this beautifully observed comedy, which launched a much-loved ITV sitcom of the same name, we meet the key players of captain Roger's team, along with their long-suffering other halves. Relationships and rivalries, achievements and anxieties, love and loathing, all is laid bare over the course of a tense afternoon's play.

Please reserve your tickets by contacting Margaret on 07421 056814. Note: reservations are not confirmed as bookings until they are paid for. We are unfortunately having to be strict about this after some no-shows. Your understanding is appreciated.
Payments can be made in person by cash, cheque (made out to 'Dovercourt Theatre Group') or card at Cutaway, 10 West Street (roughly opposite Pieseas chippy), usually any day except Sunday or Thursday. Alternatively, we can now take payment via our PayPal account (, choose 'Friends and Family').

Have you been missing our Quiz Nights? Good news - Andrew is preparing one for Saturday 1st June at the DTG Studio, with questions starting at 7:30pm.

Checklist: money for entry fee and raffle tickets, a writing implement, the beverage of your choice, plus of course your sharpest brain. Oh, and a cracking team name. We'll provide everything else, including nibbles and writing paper. If you can, please let Margaret know on 07421 056814 that you're intending to come, as it does help with the planning.

DTG Studio

Our home is The Studio, a two-storey brick building, situated behind Timeline Auctions, which we lease from Harwich Town Council. Originally part of the Hill School, this is where we rehearse, and usually perform, our shows. It's a little bit tucked away, so for some more information on how to find us, click here.

Access to the Studio is via Manor Lane, off Highfield Avenue, and chiefly on foot. There is a small parking area on site, so if you have mobility problems, please get in touch and we can make arrangements for you to park there. From Highfield Avenue, head along Manor Lane in the direction of Lime Avenue until you reach the double gates at the corner of the site. There is signage just inside for the various groups who use the site, including ourselves. Once you're through the gate, make your way up the path to the ramp at the top. Continue between two single-storey huts - the Boxing Club on your left and 'We Are Music' (formerly the Rock School) on your right till you reach the two-storey brick building, which is the Studio. Go round this building to the opposite corner where you will find the entrance. Turn left on entering, and our main performance/rehearsal space is just through the door.
