A spokesman said: “Our Grand Theatre Play Reading Group is an excellent way to get involved with the theatre, meet new people and while away your time reading and discussing plays.

“Perfect for anyone who relishes reading and engaging in discussion about great titles from some of the world’s leading play writes.

“No experience of play reading is needed and you don’t even have to join in if you don’t wish.

“This is an informal and friendly group of people sharing like-minded interests.

“The group have read everything from Greek tragedies and Shakespeare, to Oscar Wilde and J B Priestley.”
