Event description

Description

Graham Harvey, for twenty years the Agricultural Story Editor of The Archers and writer of more than 600 episodes, brings to the stage the true tale of an unlikely Cotswold hero, an enduring romance and the fight to retain the heart of rural Britain.

Award-winning composer, Alastair Collingwood, who has written scores for numerous theatre shows, including for the West End, and numerous TV themes, provides live music. The production includes five songs.

The story moves between the 1940s and the current day and is set in the Oxfordshire countryside, rich in tradition and full of vivid, memorable characters. But this is no nostalgic, bucolic ramble. This is Elizabeth’s story... What inspires a young Somerset land girl to set off in search of a best selling author in the darkest days of war?

It is a story that is timeless, yet hugely relevant today as it questions our relationship with the countryside, the quality of the food we produce and our very identity.

“When peace is won, we fight for the land we love”…

“A really lovely story, beautifully told.”

LondonTheatre April 2017

“Bailey’s performance is a mini masterpiece as she slips effortlessly between age and encounter, with warmth, wonderment, and magnificent spiky humour.”

Chichester Observer September 2017

“Made magical by Alastair Collingwood’s musical scores.”
