CORONAVIRUS: 05May21 UpdateAll UK venues closed on 16th March 2020. Many are planning to re-open by late May 2021 with some restrictions and possibly fully open from mid-June.
The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there. In the heat and humidity of the rural Norfolk summer in 1900, a young boy comes of age as he is unwittingly enlisted as a messenger in an adult affair of deceit and desire. This is the world premiere of a moving new musical adaptation of LP Hartley's beautifully wistful novel of naivety, nostalgia and the end of innocence, perhaps best known as a film of the same name starring Julie Christie and Alan Bates.Performers Edward Cooke (Leo - Leeds), Jake Abbott (Marcus - Leeds), William James Mercer, John James Cairns, Sophie Bould, Stuart Ward, James Staddon, Stephen Carlile, Philip Cox, Richard Kent, Fiona O'Carroll, Gemma Page, Chris Theo-Cook.
