Huge thanks to our supporters for making "Funny Money" such a successful show. We had a full house on the Friday and Saturday nights, and very respectable numbers on the other two nights. The sound of laughter from the audience always makes the hard work worth while and it was lovely to see the very talented cast get the enthusiastic reception they deserved.
... our productions promise our audiences a great evening of fun and laughter
The Players have a distinguished history going back to the 1920s and can proudly boast an uninterrupted programme of productions since just after the Second World War. We pride ourselves on the quality of our productions, which are always comedy or farce and take place in the second week of November at Milton Abbot Village Hall. If you would like to get involved with us, whether backstage or onstage, please get in touch - we always welcome new faces!
On our Productions page, you will find an archive of photographs and information capturing some of the Milton Abbot Player's unique history. We would be delighted to hear from you if you have additional information or photos which can help us fill in the gaps.

Henry A Perkins, a mild mannered accountant, accidentally picks up the wrong briefcase on the London Underground on his way home from work at Bodley, Bodley and Crouch and his life changes forever. The briefcase contains a small fortune in used banknotes. Henry grabs the opportunity afforded by this unexpected windfall to exchange his humdrum existence for a glamorous life of luxury on some far-flung costa. He just has to persuade his wife, convince his friends, confuse the constabulary and outwit the mafia to realise his dream. Will he succeed..?
