Clavering Players began life under another name in 1945 - the Cheerio's Concert Party - and their immediate aim was short-term indeed: to support Homecoming Forces Funds. Another very British institution was responsible for the name change and for keeping the interest going: the Women's Institute.
The first production as Clavering Players was Quiet Weekend, by Esther McCracken in 1959 and one of that production's cast is still a member of the society; ticket prices were 2/6p for the back seats, five shillings (25p) for the front.
Since then the Players have developed into one of the leading drama companies in the area. Their next production will be the award winning comedy ‘The Memory Of Water’ by Shelagh Stephenson on 8th, 9th and 10th June in Saffron Walden Town Hall.
