Sadly this was the final production for Bare Bones Theatre Company. After twelve very successful years the company's failure to recruit younger members has forced it to 'ring down the curtain'.

We have toured to no less than twenty-four different venues throughout Herefordshire and adjoining counties.  We express our gratitude to the many loyal folowers who have supported our company come rain or shine. We'll miss you
