St George’s Play

2011 saw the start of a brand new CRAPPPS tradition – The Calverton St George’s Play.

The original script – compiled by Chris Throup from existing St George’s Play texts with additional characters and dialogue taken from the Calverton Plough Play – was cast at the CRAPPPS get together on Friday 11 March 2011.

A revised script was written by Simon Carter in January 2014 and was performed for the first time on the 2014 St George’s run.
