A group of people from Stoke came together in mid-2015 to re-ignite an idea originally discussed during the annual Stoke carol singing the previous Christmas. This original idea was to create a performing arts group and a core team of people, comprising of Angela Hodges, Sharon Dance, Moira Hulett, Jeanie Augarde and Brian Evans, got together to make the idea happen and produce a play. The play chosen was “And Grandsire Went Wrong”, which written by one of their number, Angela Hodges (Min), and is about the village, more specifically it was about the people of Stoke and the centenary of the start of the Battle of the Somme, in July 2016
The first play was a huge success, so Min took up her pen again and has written our latest project The Charity Shop, a 'pre-loved comedy’. This play is going to be fun to watch as well as fun to perform.

Min has not sat idylly by whilst we put this play together, she has another play sat in the wings, waiting for the third production.
