Welcome, old friends and new, to our second ‘at home’ performance.  So, pull up a chair, enjoy a glass of wine, relax and listen to our fabulous Speakeasy actors as they lift the characters off the page and bring them to life.

A BIT ABOUT MAKING A DONATION

In these strange times, many of us have found comfort from watching theatrical events streamed into our homes, binged on a box-set or two and caught up on a tv series that we’d always meant to watch.  The arts industry has been hit hard by the current pandemic and many actors and theatre workers are in crisis.  Acting For Others provides financial and emotional support for all theatre workers in times of need through 14 member charities.  The Berko Speakeasy team would be very grateful if you’d consider making a £5 donation via the PayPal button below that we could pass on to these charities in our name, once we have covered our costs for this evenings performance.
