The Players Theatre, Nelson Street, Thame, Oxfordshire, OX9 2DP

Thame Players are quite simply one of the finest amateur theatre companies in the country. That’s why, despite my regular work at Oxford Playhouse, I travel from Oxford and try not to miss their work. That’s why, too, every effort should be made to help this treasure house of local theatre continue developing for the enjoyment and education of local people.” Gwilym Scourfield, Old Marston, Oxford
