It's a rare treat to have the chance to see both Lark Rise and Candleford performed together (each is a full-length play, standing on its own), not least because of the large cast required for each show (two dozen actors across the two plays), as well as four first-rate musicians. Robert Little and his cast have done a wonderful job, using our unique and intimate space with simple staging, a marvellous band and a tremendous family feel.
The first half of the run is over, but there are still several chances to see the show, between Wednesday 18 and Saturday 21 October:
Lark Rise: 19 October 2017 at 7.30pm, matinée 21 October at 2.30pm
Candleford: 18, 20 & 21 October 2017 at 7.30pm
We have been delighted by so many positive comments from our audiences, via email, social media and our audience survey. Do come along to see what they are so enthusiastic about.
