Cheshire Cats 
a comedy by Gail Young

A moving, emotional and extremely funny comedy.

Camaraderie, frayed relationships and blisters are to be expected when a team of women from Cheshire decide to speedwalk their way to fundraising success in the London Moonwalk.  But along the way this cleverly crafted comedy will not only have you laughing out loud but also feeling the deep emotion associated with the Moonwalk’s aim which is to raise money for breast cancer.   

In their decorated bras and posh new trainers the girls are up for the challenge, but when one of the team can’t make it, the substitute 6th member of the team doesn't exactly meet the physical criteria!  At the end of the 13 miles of aching feet, heaving bosoms, friendships and tears, the walkers will have a stitch in their sides, but so too will the audience, from laughing  out loud.  

Cheshire Cats has been highly praised and at its first performance in the Edinburgh Fringe was described in The Scotsman as “A genuinely funny and even touching ensemble piece”.


Available on the Tavonians website as well as in person from the Royal Oak Inn, Meavy.  Tickets will also be available on the door, subject to availability.  All tickets are £10

St Lukes Hospice PlymouthThis play is also being performed at 7 other venues throughout West Devon and East Cornwall.  During the tour Tavonians Theatre Company will be raising funds for St.Lukes Hospice.

Hidden Figures

Saturday 11th November, at 7:30pm

Hidden Figures (PG)

As the United States raced against Russia to put a man in space, NASA found untapped talent in a group of African-American female mathematicians that served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in U.S. history. Based on the unbelievably true life stories of three of these women, known as "human computers", we follow these women as they quickly rose the ranks of NASA alongside many of history's greatest minds specifically tasked with calculating the momentous launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, and guaranteeing his safe return. Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson, and Katherine Johnson crossed all gender, race, and professional lines while their brilliance and desire to dream big, beyond anything ever accomplished before by the human race, firmly cemented them in U.S. history as true American heroes.

Geoff Lakeman

Geoff LakemanMeavy Parish Hall
Friday 24th of November, at 7:30pm

Geoff Lakeman is a leading exponent of the rare Crane Duet concertina. He performs self-written and West Country songs, English, Irish and Scottish folk and other music as varied as Jimmie Rodgers, the Louvin Brothers, Richard Thompson and Randy Newman. He's also one of the few to play 1920's/30's jazz on an authentic 1920's instrument.  

His smooth tenor vocals and unique concertina accompaniment have won him plaudits and fans over the years but it has only been since retiring from a long career as a Fleet Street Journalist that Geoff has truly spread his wings musically.
