We are an amateur dramatic group, now in our 39th year.

We present a pantomime every February and plays every May and October.

We raise money for local and distant charitable causes.

We are based in the beautiful Peak District of Derbyshire, United Kingdom.

The Thrill of Love

Hathersage Players are pleased to present for you The Thrill of Love by Amanda Whittington, set in the 1950s. Come and enter the shady world of the London night club scene and enjoy our live band and singer. Please dress up in the style of the day (if you wish!) and watch the story unfold of Ruth Ellis and those who knew her. Was she an unfeeling, brassy blonde murderer or a tragic victim of her time? You can get drinks at the bar to help you decide but we guarantee an evening full of laughter and love. Directed by Val Robinson and Pat McLoughlin, who brought you Calendar Girls in 2013, this is a moody, film noir drama. Because of the play’s content it is unfortunately not suitable for under16s.
