A BIG THANK YOU to all our audience members who came to see 'Rutherford & Son'.


This powerful Edwardian drama, written in 1912 by Githa Sowerby, was one of our most ambitious productions to date.


Through the hard work of director Pat Riley, her dedicated cast and a huge Adel Players 'team effort' in set design, lighting, sound, props, front-of-house and various other key jobs, we are now able to reflect on a highly satisfying start to our 2014/15 season.

Here's some of the messages we have received...




  • "This was truly outstanding drama... we marvel at the ability of your team."
  • "Hearty congratulations on a splendid and riveting production. I'm so glad I came."
  • "They couldn't have done it better at the Grand or the Playhouse - it was blooming marvellous!"
  • "Thank you for what was a truly amazing performance."
  • "A very good and most enjoyable play."
  • "How do they manage to put such a fab set together? It was a fantastic set!"
  • "Thank you for an enthralling evening - many congratulations to cast and team."
