On Tuesday 4 July Pick Me Up Theatre is bringing its 5* production of 'Private Peaceful' to QM for a very special performance in the Chapman Theatre.

York actor, George Stagnell, plays Private Thomas 'Tommo' Peaceful - and everyone he meets in his life - in this poignant, moving and uplifting one-man play adapted by Simon Reade from the much loved novel by Michael Morpurgo.

The author's inspiration from the story came from a visit to the war museum in Ypres where he was intrigued by a typed letter from an Army Captain to the mother of a soldier. In a few short lines she was told that her son had been shot at dawn for cowardice.

Morpugo discovered that this young man was just one of many and at that moment he knew he had to tell their story. The result was 'Private Peaceful' - a book that not only highlights the horrors and futilities of war, but also the joy and wonders of life.

Pick Me Up's production staged recently in York received wonderful reviews and now plays at QM for one night only ahead of it playing at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August.

Residents of Escrick are invited to join us. Tickets must be booked in advance by emailing events@queenmargarets.com and cost £5 which will be payable in cash on the door. Tickets are offered on a first come, first served basis.

Parish Magazine Update - May 2017

published on 7th Apr 2017

The following update will appear in May's Parish Magazine:

A19 safety: The A19 in Escrick has now been designated as a police safety camera van location. This means that police camera vans will be located on the A19 in Escrick from time to time to catch speeding and other offences. As a result of this, the Community Speed Watch group has had to stand down, as the police do not allow CSW and camera vans to operate on the same section of road. The Parish Council is very grateful for the volunteers that have given their time to CSW during its short period of operation. Separately, a site meeting is scheduled with NYCC to discuss options for improving the pedestrian crossing on the A19.

Annual meetings: The ‘Annual Meeting of the Parish Council’ and the ‘Annual Parish Meeting’ will take place on Monday 8th May at 7.30pm at the Club. Members of the public are welcome to attend.

Fountain area: Now the weather has improved, work has been scheduled to repaint the posts and replace the chains around the fountain area.

THE MONDAY PLAYERS PRESENT: SEE HOW THEY RUN

by Philip King

So swift is the action, so involved the situations, so rib tickling the plot in this London hit that at its finish audiences are left as exhausted from laughter as though they had run a foot race.

See How They Run is set in the idyllic village of Merton-cum-Middlewick, England during the 1940s. It's World War II, and the village inhabitants are preparing themselves for the imminent threat of Nazi invasion. Meanwhile, resident spinster, Miss Skillon, becomes convinced that her beloved vicar's actress wife is having an affair and attempts to expose her.

Add an escaped German prisoner of war, a handsome actor, the visiting Bishop of Lax, a rotund locum priest and some meddling neighbours and hilarious confusion and mayhem result.

Galloping in and out of the four doors of an English vicarage are an American actor and actress (he is now stationed in England), a cockney maid who has seen too many American movies, an old maid who "touches alcohol for the first time in her life," four men in clergyman suits presenting the problem of which is which, for disguised as one is an escaped prisoner, and a sedate Bishop aghast at all these goings on and the trumped up stories

18th, 19th and 20th May at 7.30pm

The Village Hall, Escrick
