It was the first Fletcher event way back in 2009 staged in The Tudor Room at The Mermaid and was introduced by the man who started it all - Freddie Lees and Donald Sinden - seen here with the cast and writer.

Who are we?
Fletcher in Rye CIC
A group of local residents with experience in Business, Banking and Theatre.
We came together originally to try to establish a theatre in The Monastery and promote the name of John Fletcher - the Jacobean playwright, and colleague of Shakespeare - who was born in Rye. The group’s focus switched to Lion Street when it was threatened with redevelopment.
We're building links with local businesses (including Jonathan Dunn Architects and Kino Digital) - helping us preserve Rye’s heritage by establishing creative and sustainable uses for its historic and potentially redundant buildings.
