Since 1971, Q2 Players have been providing a wide range of drama for lovers of live theatre in the Kew/Richmond area, with a programme of plays by authors as diverse as Shakespeare, Moliere, Ibsen, Shaw, Priestley, Anouilh, Emlyn Williams, Pinter and Ayckbourn. We have also had our fair share of success with drama awards in acting, direction and design categories.
In 1988 we moved into St Luke’s Centre in The Avenue, Kew to become the resident drama group. In the warm and welcoming atmosphere of the Princess Alexandra Room upstairs we have added to our reputation for providing enjoyable productions twice a year; we also have poetry readings, rehearsed readings and social events.
Q2 PLAYERS is the only amateur drama group regularly performing in Kew. With the continued support of our audiences, the co-operation of the St Luke’s Community Trust and the enthusiasm of our members, Q2 look forward to developing our reputation as an enterprising local drama group at St Luke’s Upstairs. Membership to Q2 costs just £20 per year.
Q2 perform two large shows each year in November or December and April or May, then over summer host small play readings where members perform poems or rehearsed readings. Social events take place throughout the year and include meals and quiz nights. In 2011 Q2 celebrated its 40th anniversary and lots of special events were organised.
All shows are performed at Kew Community Centre in St Luke’s church:
