Rehearsals are well under way for our next production, H.E. Bates’, Darling Buds of May. The stage play was adapted from the successful novel which also spawned a highly popular television series that you may be familiar with.

The play centres on the lovable Larkin family, Ma, Pa and their brood of children. Pa has a touch of mischief, encouraged by his loyal and capable wife. They love their family and wish to see their eldest daughter with a suitable husband, especially since she is already with child! Ssshhh! Enter the young tax inspector, come to force Pa to pay up. Will he fall for the charms of the Larkin family? Who could resist?!

With a local cast of youth and adults, a fun and highly humorous script, and under the talented direction of Rob Snelling, this is one not to be missed.

Opens Sept 10th.
