Cheshire farming drama to tour region

October 22, 2019

 

 

 

It is the 1930s, and in the countryside the tractor is taking over from the horse.

 

Wilf is a farmer whose traditional methods have served him well all through his hard-working life, but when his younger brother-in-law Totty insists on introducing new technology in the form of a tractor into their family business, Wilf fears that the balance of nature will be upset.

 

A family feud develops and things get worse when a mysterious stranger appears, and the family fear that he is possibly a ghost, or an angel, or… a Boggart - a spirit portentous of disasters.

 

They decide to take action, but their hilarious ineptitude and the interference of the eccentric busy-body Mrs Mayse have significant consequences for the family.

 

National Theatre and Royal Shakespeare Company playwright Nick Darke’s funny and thought-provoking story has something important to say about our present concerns for the environment.

 

Richard Avery worked with Nick Darke when in the cast of Landmarks at Chester Gateway Theatre in 1979. Richard returns as Director, this time along with Neil King, Gordon Meredith, Jan Hollington and Roxanne Waite.
