engaging and challenging local drama



Forest Players is an amateur dramatic group based in Forest Row in East Sussex. They put on performances in Forest Row, and East Grinstead in West Sussex. Their shows have ranged from dramas, thrillers and comedies to radio shows to name but a few.


Forest Players was formed in 2007 as a result of the amalgamation of Forest Row Dramatic Society of Forest Row and Sackville Players of East Grinstead. Each of these groups had been putting on shows for over 50 years. In 2005 they began performing joint productions in addition to their own separate productions. By late 2006 the two groups had theoretically merged - in all but the name. In August 2007 they formally amalgamated and became Forest Players: the first word of Forest Row Dramatic Society and the last word of Sackville Players.




The objective of Forest Players is to put on the presentation of dramas and other genres in both Forest Row and East Grinstead.
