Talking Heads by Alan Bennett.

Otley Players are thrilled to bring you two of Alan Bennetts best loved monologues: Bed Among the Lentils and A Cream Cracker under the Settee at the Courthouse. We are delighted to be working with the Courthouse again and look forward to seeing you at this great venue.

Get involved

Have you ever fancied having a go at …


Whether you have plenty of experience of none at all, you’re welcome to join us!


We love to perform original plays as well as established ones – talk to us about writing a play for Otley Players!


Putting on a play takes a team of people with organising and people skills, and a director with vision and ideas. Would you like to help bring the words alive?


Set building, props, costumes, lights, sound – would you like to help create the magic of theatre?

A welcoming group

We try to make our group to be informal and friendly. We decide together as a group what plays we want to put on and where, and – apart from the director being in control of a play – we try to make our decisions collectively. Everyone can get involved in acting, play writing, set building, costume, producing and directing if you want to try.

  • No auditions (usually)
  • Everyone can get involved in some way
  • Social and fun
