The Village Players are a friendly and informal group who have been entertaining themselves and others in the Lausanne area with amateur theatre, music, song and dance for the last 30 years. In addition to the wonderful public productions the group puts on each year, members have the opportunity to enjoy a variety of monthly events including play readings, poetry recitals, musical evenings and social events.
On November 14, 15, 16th, we gave performances of an adaptation of the play “WARHORSES OF LETTERS”, which was commissioned by and first broadcast on BBC Radio 4. Directed by Pamela Jenkins and Chris Hemmens.
