100-year-old drama group to perform Oscar Wilde play in South Woodford


A local theatre group celebrating its 100th year will stage a production of Lord Arthur Savile’s Crime – a comedy thriller based on a story by Oscar Wilde – in South Woodford in February.

Formerly known as The Wanstead Players, the company was founded in 1923. In 2020, after 43 years at the Kenneth More Theatre, the group rebranded as WP Drama and relocated to Redbridge Drama Centre on Churchfields.

The show runs from 23 to 25 February (7.30pm; tickets: £15.50), with a Sunday matinée on 26 February (3pm).
