Founded three years ago the So and So Arts Club is dedicated to connecting artists from all disciplines and ages to foster support, collaboration and paid work. The So and So Arts Club is an internet based organisation which has grown to 1,200 members in nine different countries. The Club has generated paid work for over 400 actors, directors, writers and designers in the last three years.

Sarah Whitlock, appearing in Mercy, said “Repertory theatre has always been a fabulous way to learn the trade but over recent years it has been replaced by fringe or free performance.”

“The Ever HopeFull Rep. is a great shop window to be seen in, and it’s marvellous fun!”

By Clare Whitehead – directed by Jake Murray
Somewhere in the English countryside, Helen’s husband dies. As she ponders life without him, she re-examines all she has done – the unhappy love affairs, the missed opportunities, the small deceptions that became big deceptions – until Dave, her first true love walks back into her world. Clare Whitehead’s moving and poetic play is a study of lives un-lived, regret and second chances, and the ever present need for mercy for all of us.
