Due to the restrictions imposed as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic, the activities of Forfar Dramatic Society, like so many other parts of society, have been severely affected.

Our productions of Inspector Drake and the Black Widow, planned for March 2020, had to be called off at short notice. Since then, of course, no other public performances have been possible. We hope to reschedule this production once restrictions allow.

Members of the Society, however, have not been inactive during lockdown and have not only met regularly via Zoom, but produced innovative pieces of drama during this period.

The Hadleigh Hall Inheritance

This is an interactive murder mystery, filmed remotely via Zoom. It will be shown on Friday 16th April at 7:30pm. You can watch the performance in the comfort of your own home while testing out your detective skills by noting clues and interviewing the suspects.

The tickets, costing £5, can be bought via Ticket Source at the following link:


Once you have purchased your e-ticket, you will receive a confirmation email with a link to the relevant site and any other information you need to participate in and enjoy the experience.

In the summer of 2020 the Society released, online, a series of one minute plays. You can find these on our Film Archive page.

In the run up to Christmas 2020, the society produced a radio version of Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol. This script was written by Dickens himself so he could perform it at various events as a one man show. Our version splits the characters between a number of actors and it will be made public once again in the run up to Christmas 2021.
Early in the New Year we worked on two radio scripts. the first, Lifeline, tells the story of how real life experiences can affect staff in a helpline call centre and the second, Mabel’s Day Off is an amusing fantasy adventure. If you missed either you can catch up with them here:

We are currently working on a series of monologues and we hope to bring those to you in the near future.
