Performance date and time

7:30 PM

‘It was a full moon, so I suppose we should’ve known. Nothing good happens on a full moon. Well, not in our village. He came one night. No-one could really remember quite when or from where. He just had so many stories you see. We forgot to ask for the details…’ Introducing a darkly comic modern fairy-tale written by the award-winning Robert Alan Evans. Live music and original songs underpin a unique piece of theatre about three people seeking happiness as the full moon unsettles their gentle way of life. Set over 24 hours, ‘The Tale of Little Bevan’ will make you question what community really means to you, while exploring issues both universal and specific to these villages. This play was made in collaboration with village hall promoters and rural communities across Norfolk and is essential viewing for anyone who saw and loved Pentabus Theatre Company’s previous shows, 'Here I Belong' by Matt Hartley. 'Anyone who lives, or who has ever lived, in a village would immediately recognise the setting and characters in Pentabus's production of The Tale of Little Bevan - Actually, add to that anyone who's listened to The Archers, because as The Tale of Little Bevan demonstrates as it goes under the skin of the village and, quite literally, under the village, nothing - and no one - is ever quite what it seems.' - Hereford Times
