Darling Buds

Bridgetown Theatre’s next production will be a much-loved favourite.

The play is based on the first chapter of H.E.Bates’ novel of the same name. The novel has spawned four other novels featuring the loveable Larkins, a feature film, a radio series, a hugely successful television series and this play. It is set in rural England in the late 1950s and features a large cast of all ages.

Pop Larkin, who makes a fortune from scrap-iron deals but has never paid a penny in income tax, lives in rural idyllic bliss with generous-hearted Ma and their six children. When a young, earnest tax official, Mr Charlton, turns up one hot May afternoon in 1957 to investigate he is bewitched immediately by eldest daughter Mariette and it is not long before he succumbs to the boisterous Larkin family charm and largesse.

This play should be warmly received by Larkins fans, new and old. It will be a lot of fun. As an added bonus- the cast will be the first to perform under our new, awesome lights!

Performance dates are 10-13 and 17-20 September 2020
