THE Pentabus Theatre Company will perform a brand new show at Briantspuddle Village Hall next weekend.

Created in collaboration with rural communities, the fairytale – The Tale of Little Bevan – is being performed at three village hall across Dorset.

These performances are taking place in partnership with the county's touring rural arts organisation Artsreach.

Artsreach co-director Kerry Bartlett said: "Last autumn Pentabus toured their outstanding World War One centenary production ‘Crossings', and the quality of the acting, music and singing was simply outstanding.

"I can’t wait to see what this new show brings.”

Explaining this latest offering, an Artsreach spokesman said: "In a peaceful Norfolk village three people are seeking happiness.

"But as the harvest moon fills and the party begins, ancient forces are brought to life.

"While Tony and Mike get trapped in the tunnels below the village, Gill’s plan for revenge turns extremely nasty."

The show, by award-winning writer Robert Alan Evans, presents a darkly comic journey through 24-hours in the life of a rural village.

It includes live music, original songs and storytelling.

The Tale of Little Bevan will be performed at Briantspuddle Village Hall on Saturday, November 23, from 7.30pm.
